Re: bought an extra freezer for milk
why are you pumping so much to save up so much milk? i'm wondering if you can back off a little (slowly, so you don't get engorged), and stop saving? also wondering if you can donate some of that stash to someone who needs it? standard freezers will keep milk for 3-4 months, so you're really pushing it on january's milk already. perhaps you could donate all of jan through may's milk now to someone who will go through it much faster than you are? you can find someone locally through human milk for human babies (hm4hb) or eats on feet on facebook; in principle you can also donate to HBMANA milk banks, though they will likely not take such old milk.
the suggestion i have heard about imbalanced fats in milk is to save up all the milk from the day in one container, so it mixes, then re-parcel for freezing. the foremilk is precious too!
i totally get wanting to have a big stash - i did this too - it made me feel in control - but it sounds like maybe you're going a little overboard? i mean that in the nicest possible way
