I am not sure if this is the right location for this post, but here goes.
In January I had a thyroidectomy. For that procedure, I was supposed to have taken Potassium Iodide for the 10 days leading up to surgery. So, I had pumped and stored over 400 oz of milk starting shortly after my daughter was born (6.30.09). Well, I was allergic to the potassium iodide, so I didn't use the milk. I generally would just donate it to the local milk bank, but it wasn't stored to their standards (dated but no time noted, pump parts cleaned but not sterilized between each pumping, etc.) Also, I was on Propylthiouracil which is fine for a healthy baby but may not be for a preemie. I have not contacted them to see if they would take it, but doubt it- and some of it is over 6 months old which I know they won't take. At any rate- what do I do with all of this milk? My daughter is now 9 months old and I still nurse her and her 2 year old sister. If my supply were to drop, I would simply wean the older child, etc. I just can't see us using 400 ounces of milk and it kills me to just throw it out. Any suggestions?
