spread this around

I wish I had known about this when my babies were younger. There is a not-for-profit organization called Human Milk Banking Association of North America that collects (safe) donated breastmilk and delivers it to premature or sick infants. They only accept milk from donors whose babies are less than a year old, so I don't qualify. But if you do, or you know of someone who is breastfeeding and can pump a little extra for a sick babe, tell them!

If we have any more babies (do you hear that? it's the sound of my husband pounding his head on the desk.), I am totally doing this. And do you want to know why? Because if it were my child in that little NICU bubble, I'd be grateful beyond words.

Go here to read a little bit about a sweet preemie who is being blessed by the gift of donated breastmilk while she and her mama are in the hospital. I've mentioned this family before, and after you check them out, you should pray for them every day. Or six times a day. Either way. Read. Pray. Donate your milk.
