    Smile Desperately needed milk donations brisbane

    Our quadruplets are 19 weeks old and urgently needing breast milk (frozen or fresh) we currently only have a few days of breastmilk left.
    The babies were 3 1/2 pounds at birth and all spent a month in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
    Our baby girl developed NEC and was transferred to a Surgical Hospital for a second month where she had bowel surgery. For the first two months of her life, she was fed intravenously though a central line in her chest and was allowed no breast milk. She had seven rounds of antibiotics over that time. She now has a colostomy bag and will need further surgery to re-attach her bowel in a few months time because of this she is unable to have formula.
    We are needing to source breast milk so the babies can grow strong and strengthen their immune systems and that of our little girl to get her strong for surgery.
    If you have any spare frozen milk or are willing to express any fresh milk (for those in Brisbane) we would be most grateful.
    Due to medications the babies are on unfortunately they cannot have any breast milk where the donating Mum is on medication but all other breast milk would be highly beneficial for them.
    The babies have been through so much already and your breast milk will make such a difference to their current and future health.
    We can organize shipping from anywhere in Australia and collect from anywhere in Brisbane.
    We are happy to compensate for any costs involved for you.
