Milksharing is by no means a new thing. Women have been opening their hearts and their milk stores to babies in need since the beginning of time. But modern milksharing is a bit different than the days of wet nurses (although, there are still wet nurses today!). Most milk donations are pumped, bagged, frozen and sometimes shipped. This is still relatively new in our society.
The purpose of this blog is to make this process easier for all milksharing moms. Our tutorials offer pictures, but we wanted to do you all one better by offering video tutorials, as well.
Right now, all of our videos pertain to the donor side of milksharing. Pretty soon, we will have some videos about what to do with the milk once you have received it. We have great tips on storing, thawing, etc.
Please take some time to check out these short videos to better familiarize yourself with safe milksharing practices!
