    Default Donating BM/Motivation (Where to put this?)

    Was wondering about this and can't seem to figure out how it works. I'm looking for good sites to donate to. Mainly, something to get me motivated to start pumping more.

    Human Milk Bank of North America is where I donated. They are non-profit and pasturize and donate to local hospitals. They pay for extensive blood tests.

    I'm still struggling with my supply but I want to be prepared for when I do have more than I can handle.

    This is what I've done so far:
    Keep Food Journal (Try to eat as health as possible)
    Take one PV (Prenatal Vitamin)
    Drink 2+ glasses of Fenugreek/Mother's Milk Tea
    Consuming a minimum of one bowl of oatmeal(atleast something with it in it) a day
