for the following poll let's assume you know the donor well and the supplied milk is the last option before artificial milk, not just for kicks.
#1. on a scale of 1-10 (1 being least) how comfortable would you be with donor milk (in a bottle)
#2. on a scale of 1-10 (1 being least) how comfortable would you be with donor milk (directly feeding by another mother)
olive has had two diapers that were a bit watery for me, which is one of the common reactions to these antibiotics. if this continues throughout the rest of the day im going to seek some donor milk i think. talked to kathy (midwife/LC) and she echoed that same thought. for the above questions i would say that i am probably an 9 or 10 on the donor milk in a bottle and a 7 or so on the direct nursing from another mama. i mean that's MY kid and our bonding time so i feel a little territorial over the whole business. i bet my family is reading this right now and cringing. i love you guys!
my great friend michelle rigsby just dropped off like 30-40 oz of milk to donate to olive while im on these antibiotics. what a wonderful friend i am blessed with!! she and her boy saylor hung out for a while and we yapped and the babies slobbered together - it was really nice.
