Hi, just wondering how I would go about donating some extra milk? It's not a huge amount each day, but due to my son's milk transfer issues I have to pump after many feeds. I CANNOT give this to him in a bottle because it leads to frustration at the breast (after the ease of a bottle). I'm using small amounts in things for him but there's no way I will be able to use the whole drawer full of bm in the freezer. I will need to continue pumping and will keep having to freeze milk I can't use.

How old is he?
Have you thought of using a supplemental nursing system (SNS) to feed him the extra milk? Very fine tube is taped to your boob and he gets small amounts of milk through that while breastfeeding and stimulating your nipples.

Hi Purplecat, he's 6 months next week. I hadn't thought about an sns for this purpose, no. I will keep it in mind. Thanks for the idea.

The premature baby breastmilk banks only accept milk in the containers they provide to you because otherwise the milk gets too contaminated when removed from other types of containers.
