Re: Anybody ever pumped milk for a frien
Way to go, mama. I think it's wonderful of you to be doing this for your friend. I pumped once for a friend's little guy (our boys are the same age). He had to go for an MRI and couldn't have anything but breastmilk after midnight. At that point, he had quit nursing (but he was still young - maybe 13 months or so), so she asked me if I could pump a bottle for him and I was happy to! When I gave her the milk (at our playgroup), she put it in the fridge and we were horrified to find out that one of the other moms was going on and on about how disgusting it was to have breastmilk in the fridge, and threw it in the garbage! My friend dug it out though. It was well sealed, and just on top of the pile. So I can understand how you feel like other people don't get it because well, lots of them just don't.
Anyway, I think it's great.
