Milk Donation

When I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to breastfeed but said I wouldn’t put too much pressure on myself. Even though I anticipated difficulty, I didn’t expect SO much difficulty. Big weight drop, tongue tie, latch issues, told he needed to be topped up every 2 hours and using nipple shields for 4 months. The one thing I had luck with was a huge milk supply. We are now 7 months in, and my baby is still exclusively breastfed and I’ve just been able to donate over 2 litres to the Birmingham Milk Bank. I’m so grateful and amazed that my body has been able to create a little chunky boy and help neonatal babies in the Midlands. I’ve had a little cry but I’m so proud of myself.
