Crowd-sourcing a blood draw and storing milk in her neighbor's chest freezer...this is some serious dedication to becoming a milk donor!
It might sound extreme measures, but hey....that milk could literally save a newborn baby's life, and that's pretty extreme, too!

Have you ever corrected a fellow parent after seeing a car seat pic with a baby that wasn't properly strapped in?
Did you think twice about saying something?
Would you do it again?

"The challenges of nursing a newborn were replaced with the surprises of nursing a teething baby (yes, there were a couple of biting incidents) to the insanity of nursing a toddler who can actually ask for milk, or better yet, run up to you in public, stick his hands down your shirt and start tweaking your nipples!"

Researchers at the University of Adelaide have written a letter published in the Journal of Human Lactation in support of domperidone use. "These wide-ranging benefits should outweigh what amounts to largely theoretical risks associated with the use of domperidone for low milk supply. Further restrictions regarding the use of domperidone for lactation do not appear warranted and risk subjecting breastfeeding women to further emotional trauma as well as not being in the interests of the long-term health of them or their babies."

Mamas, this is THE app to put on your smartphone! Look up everything from vitamins to prescription meds and everything in-between to see how safe it is to use while breastfeeding.
The InfantRisk Center is the foremost expert on meds & mama milk....it is wonderful to see this app is free through 12/1!
