    You know, if you can get your LO to latch on and start feeding him straight from the tap in the evenings and on weekends then after a year you could stop pumping. Then he would get enough milk when you nursed.

    Although I am saying this without knowing anything about his kidney problems though. But I know that after one many moms stop pumping and give their LOs water while they are at work and then just nurse when you will be together.

    What a great stash you built up and I'm so sorry that you're finding you can't use it right now! I like the idea another pp gave you to mix it into smoothies when he's older.

    Thanks for all of the support! We are working at doing more BFing and that is a great idea Jen to keep up the BFing after a year and drop the pump! He is already showing a little improvement in his BFing after 3 days of work so I am hopeful we can figure it out.

    to the links Buff posted. If you have a small amount milkshare is great for that. To donate to a milkbank you need a larger amount because of the expense for testing.

    To the OP, WOW. All I have is . I don't know why it is SOOOO HARD to toss BM. I have cried every time I have had to dump even an ounce.

    oh, s.

    Because of your son's condition, I know it would be wonderful if he could use it. Can you try mixing some in with fresh/scalded milk? Start out at 90good/10bad and keep increasing? 20 gallon's is so much milk! This way you could stretch your scalded stash.

    Also, the breastflow bottle really helped with my son's latch.

    That is such a shame! That is a lot of work, I'm sorry to hear what happened.

    I'm new at this... but I was just wondering what caused the milk to go bad? How can you tell it went bad? What can be done to prevent this in the future?
