Breastmilk Supply

With Alex, I always produced a ridiculously large amount of breastmilk.  We had more than enough for our son and probably enough to feed a third world country with what was left over.  There is only a certain amount of time you can store breastmilk, so once that time had expired it broke my heart to throw out a bunch of milk.

So far, this is my breastmilk stash:

We totaled it up and I have 491 ounces in my freezer as of today.  Jax nurses and also gets bottle fed, this is just the excess that I am pumping.  I have looked into donating most of this milk and hope that is something I am able to do.  If you know of anyone that needs breastmilk, please send them my way :)

Good luck! I'm up to almost 1,400 total pumped ounces in almost 4 weeks. I seriously feel like a freak of nature ;)
