Quick couple questions about donating milk. I am part of a breastfeeding group on Facebook as I had a very difficult journey with my first and really wanted to support others in their breastfeeding journey.
I was recently asked if I wanted to donate milk to a lady who is expecting her baby via surrogate in August. I would really like to help, even if I can only give part of the milk she will need.
My questions are:
I am currently exclusively breastfeeding my 7 week old (I feed on demand so there is no set schedule) so what I'm wondering is when would the best time to pump be in regards to his feeding? An hour after I've fed him maybe? Just so I am full again and will be able to get some?
Also does it matter how many mls are in the bag when frozen? Just wondering what amount would be best when they go to defrost and use it?
Are ziplock bags ok for milk storage?
Thanks for your help ladies :-)
