As many of you know, we've been relying on donated breast milk for the last many months, many of Kaitlyn's donors have just heard of our story.... I've never had to ask...
Well, it's come to the point (after a horrible day of vomiting about 8 times today) that I've come to realize that I'm dangerously low on breast milk and need more once again.
Kailtyn takes 36 ounces a day, and at least recently we've been able to successful y(except for the last few days) transition to 50% breast milk and 50% Compleat (which is a liquid real food formula). I've looked into getting milk from the breast milk bank, but at $3/ounce (and my insurance won't cover it), we'd go broke in a hurry.
So, here's my plea...are you a pumping mama, who is drug free and healthy and have an excess of milk that you would like to donate to Kailtyn? We really need a lot, and I know there are those of you out there who have excess (I know I thought I did at one point)...
I'll pay for shipping of course (which isn't cheap).
Remember how much milk I had (picture above)? I pumped for 8 months, never figuring that Kaitlyn would have trouble eating and taking formula, hind-sight is 20-20, right? I thought I had plenty to be able to give her a combination of breast milk and formula until she was a year adjusted (1/4/07). BUT, she's not handling formula very well.
Anyway, thank you should you have extra. You can comment with your contact info on my blog, or you can email me. My email address is on my home page: www.alizard.com
