>I’m going to be a breast milk donor !!!

>I’m so pleased !!! I’ve been approved to be a breast milk donor and, subject to passing a blood test and more importantly producing a couple of preliminary litres, I’m going to be able to donate !!!

I only learnt that you could do this with Toddlergirl when it was too late to start the application process but this time around knew a bit more and was more organised.
This week’s big job is to get reacquainted with my breast pump and get back into pumping – first of all to get Babygirl used to a bit of expressed milk so she’ll be ok with it when I go back to work but then to get a bit of extra to donate.
If you’re interested, here’s the link to the wonderful UK Association of Milk Banks

    >I did this with Freyja. I expressed every morning at the same time, while feeding her on the other side. When I had enough, the lady who arranged it at the hospital would come round and collect it. It was very rewarding.

    I wish I had done it with Theo too but I hardly expressed at all when I had him. Quite impressed that you are managing to do it when you have a toddler running around!

    >Kudos to you… let us know if you'd like us to send along a complimentary PumpEase hands-free pumping bra so that you can do other things while pumping… read, write, talk on the phone, surf the net, pay bills, tend to your babe!

    >Oh Wendy I'd love something that meant handsfree pumping works, I currently have something rigged up with a couple of hairbands that doesn't really work terribly well

    Done two lots of 100ml so far and feeling rather pleased with myself ! Roll on my first delivery !
