    Default Donating breast milk?

    Hi, I have 100+ oz of freshly pumped breast milk from the first 3 weeks of my daughter's life now taking up space in the freezer...space my husband would like back for ice cream! I'm not going to use it since nursing is going well and would like to donate it. Any suggestions of where to donate? I'm located in Palo Alto, CA.

    Thanks,
    Abby

    I go with hmbana as well. I really like them. My FIL is a neonatologist and his hospital (UT health science center) uses milk from one of their banks.

    Do you have extra milk? Consider donating!

    I use HMBANA too! I called a place called prolacta (I think that was the name) and they told me that they actually sell the milk to upwards of $30 an oz. That kinda made me sad.
