s/o If you used donated breastmilk
How did you do it?
Were you SAH/on maternity leave at the time? WOH? Was it mailed to you? Did you drive to meet the donor? How far/how much time? How often? How long did you continue to receive it?
Was it fresh or frozen?
How was your donor screened? By you or a company? If you did it personally, what did you find out and how did you verify it?
And whereabouts (what part of the country and rural or urban) did you live when you were doing this?
I've never done it myself and have only read about how it's supposed to work, but I'd like to hear real stories from real people. We're supposed to go for someone else's breastmilk before resorting to formula and I want to know how easy it really is to procure.
