    Default What to do with spare breastmilk?

    Hi all - I've got 800ml of frozen breastmilk that sadly I can't use for DS. Dated all around Xmas time.

    He has just been diagnosed with Dairy, Soy & Wheat Intolerance. I've now cut this all out of my diet whilst we slowly wean on to prescription formula

    Im in Melbourne and I've called the Mercy that runs the donated milk bank locally. Unfortunately they can't take frozen milk as they need to screen it before freezing. They advised all milk banks have this policy.

    Before I throw this liquid gold out, does anyone have any further suggestions? Or perhaps want it themselves? (I'm healthy with no medical issues ) I had incredible trouble with supply and expressing, so hate to see it go to waste!

    I have heard of a facebook group Human Milk For Human Babies, if you have fb it might be worth a look, I think they donate. Good luck with it. My suggestions would have been useless lol like cereal or mash but bub looks too young, and the milk is unsuitable lol.
