    I have very low supply so I top DS2 up with formula using a supply line so we can continue breastfeeding donor milk is not for us.

    Formula. Ds2 is now a happy, healthy 4 year old. If I was ever in that situation again I wouldn't hesitate for as long.

    If I have issues BF this bub, I'll try a LC (didn't last time around, wish I had of) and if that doesn't work I'll switch straight to FF. I have no issues and I just want bub to be fed.

    Oh look, the alarmists are back in town. I would give my baby formula, pesticides and all

    Unless they were in NICU then I would assume that donor milk would be properly screened and would be happy with donor milk if they were sick / premmie.

    From people I know, expressing and motillium is used to keep supplies up. I'm hoping its not an issue as I'd really love it! I don't think I'll ever be able to be pregnant so would love to be able to breastfeed.

    I don't mind questions :-)
    KKP - it would be great if you started a breast feeding diary when the time comes (similarly to the mums on here who have TTC and pregnancy diaries), no pressure, just a suggestion as I'm sure there are many of us on here who are fascinated by this!

    if i didn't have enough milk, i would source donor breastmilk, and hopefully feed bub using a supplemental nursing system.

    i would prefer donor to be as close to me as possible so that immune factors would be closest to what baby needs.

    As opposed to the multiple posts from women saying they don't trust donor milk?

    At least i know what's in formula and there is nothing wrong with it...
