I was wondering what everyone's thoughts are on donating EBM. I know that there is one company that is a for profit company that's profiting from donated milk. I made sure that the place I called doesn't participate with that company. It's actually a local milk bank ( only 45min away) and they have 20 participating hospitals and they have 5 outpatient babies and one adult patient that's on chemo.They supply our children's hospital with it's donated breast milk. Part of me worries that if I donate milk then I might not have enough for my baby, but I think it's a good cause. They do require a 100oz commitment. My babies 8weeks old today and I already have about 120oz frozen(I produce way more than she needs). Any and all comments welcome. I don't know anyone that donates milk so I'm curious what everyone thinks.
