    Don't you have to drive to some medical facility to pump it? If so I guess as long as it wasn't far.

    If someone doesn't buy my pump for me I am seriously considering it. I always have way more milk than I need, and it would be nice to help someone who needed it. Donation companies provide you with a great quality electric breast pump, like Medela and they provide the shipping bags and pay for shipping.
    Needs work.

    I would. HOWEVER there are MANY stipulations to donating milk and since I use Fenugreek while BF'ing I can't donate.

    Pretty much the same as donating blood because it is a body fluid.

    This article is very informative. http://www.breastfeedingsymbol.org/2...ad-this-first/

    Here is what HMBANA (Human Milk Banking Association of North America) says
    All donors to HMBANA member milk banks undergo a screening process that begins with a short interview over the telephone. Donor mothers are women who are currently lactating and have surplus milk. Donor mothers must be:

    * In good general health
    * Willing to undergo a blood test (at the milk bank's expense)
    * Not regularly using medication or herbal supplements (with the exception of progestin-only birth control pills or injections, Synthroid, insulin, pre-natal vitamins; for other exceptions, please contact a milk bank for more information)
    * Willing to donate at least 100 ounces of milk; some banks have a higher minimum

    A woman would not be a suitable donor if:

    * She has a positive blood test result for HIV, HTLV, hepatitis B or C, or syphilis
    * She or her sexual partner is at risk for HIV
    * She uses illegal drugs
    * She smokes or uses tobacco products
    * She has received an organ or tissue transplant or a blood transfusion in the last 12 months
    * She regularly has more than two ounces or more of alcohol per day
    * She has been in the United Kingdom for more than 3 months or in Europe for more than 5 years since 1980
    * She was born in or has traveled to Cameroon, Central Africa Republic, Chad, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Niger, or Nigeria
