    Default ideas for using up extra milk

    hey llladies,

    i have a bunch of extra milk in my freezer from my old stash that was never used. originally i had looked into donating it but one requirement for donation i read was that your lo needs to be under one year and mine is not. i was bummed about this.

    how can i use this extra milk up, my son wont take milk in a cup.

    i had even offered it to a mom i know who is eping and supplementing but she said no. she definitely thought the idea was weird, which i expected but i tried anyway.

    i just wish i had a good use for it. any ideas would be appreciated.

    You can make bm smoothie or pudding. Or ask another mom if she wants it? My daughter went through a phase when she wouldn't take milk in a sippy or bottle or cup and the a few mos later would (it was around 13-15 mos). When I left her for an overnight when she was almost two she did take pumped milk while I was gone.
    Nursed my sweet daughter 3 years, 3 mos.

    Have you looked at the local human milk for human babies board? I ended up donating mine there for the same reason.
