Natalie – Salida, MO

Natalie SmithMy sweet baby girl was born in January of 2013. I had successfully breastfed her older brother and planned for the same with her. I am “blessed” with a fast letdown and abundance of milk. I was choking my baby and quickly looked towards pumping to ease the situation. Before Grace was 12 weeks old, I had a deep freeze full of milk and knew I would soon be throwing some out. A local lactation consultant pointed me to the Milk Bank. (more…)

Corey – Highlands Ranch, CO

Corey SullivanWhile I was pregnant, a good friend had her twin babies early. They stayed in the NICU and received donor milk. She was so grateful for donor milk for her little ones, that when I had a surplus of milk, I wanted to give the gift of human milk. I would wake up for my little one’s 4 am feeding, nurse until she was full, and would pump. Friends and family used to ask why I stayed up during the night to pump milk, especially if my little one didn’t need it – wasn’t sleep for me a more rewarding option?! (more…)

Dana – Omaha, NE

Dana RitterbushOn February 3, 2013, my husband and I were blessed with our son, Jonah. Jonah was admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit shortly after birth and was fed a very small amount of my breast milk through a nasogastric tube. I pumped breast milk every 3 hours and froze the excess milk. Jonah peacefully passed away in our arms after just 67 blessed days. (more…)
