When I had my son 4 years ago, he was a ravenous little monkey whose appetite ensured my supply was very lucrative for the first 6 months. I was sending milk to friend's freezers to stash it. I wanted to donate but there a very few local options and, as I was working after maternity leave, I didn't have the time and resources to find the National Milk Bank. When my daughter arrived this past January, her appetite wasn't the same as the thirsty beast my son had been so from nearly the beginning I was over producing. There is no way she will be able to use it all before it 'expires', so I have been more than thrilled to be able to donate this time around.
