    Default Tons of extra milk - what do I do with it?

    I apologize if I didn't post this thread in the right section, I wasn't sure where to post...

    I'm a milk donor for a milk bank, and have about 100+ oz of milk they wouldn't take because of medication I had to take (Diflucan 2 different times for thrush, plus the 21 days after taking it for it to leave my system. Also took Darvocet and Naproxen for a back injury while doing physical therapy).

    I would keep it to use for DD's baby food, but I'd have to pasteurize it first since it all has yeast, and that's extremely time consuming and a HUGE headache.

    Should I post it on Eats on Feets or Milkshare? Is this milk someone would even want? I hate to throw it out, but I don't know if anyone would want it because of the medication. I'd appreciate any advice! Thanks!

    I think as long as you're up front about the medications you took and they weigh the potential risks/benefits then yes go to Eats on Feets or Milkshare or a low supply mommy friend you may have.

    And be up front about the thrush.
