In the newsletter I receive from the birth center where I had prenatal care for both of my pregnancies there was an amazing update. One of my former midwives adopted a baby who just turned one year old. Many mamas (44 to be exact) donated breastmilk to this family so that their baby could be 100% breastmilk fed for ONE WHOLE YEAR. Isn't that incredible? She writes that he hasn't ever had formula. I just think it's so amazing. I think there are probably many, many mamas out there who would donate milk to babies who can't be breastfed and that many more babies than actually are could be fed breastmilk. Oh, I've got warm fuzzies just thinking about it!
