I have a baby who won't take a bottle and I am constantly wasting Milk. I tried to give some to my dogs, but they wouldn't touch it, lol.

I've started freezing more and I think I'll donate it.

My oldest daughter was 6 when the baby was born. She nursed until she was soft three. When I started nursing the baby she wanted to nurse lol. I didn't let her but I pumped a little for her and she liked it

Re: Okay to give my weaned toddler breastmilk?

Im preggo with number 3 and when dd2 (who wont nurse anymore) got a stomach bug, I expressed a little colostrum into her sippy. She was fine next day.

Oh my gosh this is me. Lol. I have 6oz of breastmilk in the freezer, but I weaned my son about 2 months ago. I'm terrified to give it to him because he still clearly wants to nurse and I don't want to remind him of the awesomeness that is now gone. But I can't bring myself to toss the milk. I've also offered it to do different nursing mamas IRL and they both politely but firmly declined.

ETA: I think I'm better off just tossing it. If my son drank other milk I would just mix it or switch it, but he has always refused any and all milk that wasn't from mama. I'm talking coconut, almond, soy, rice, hemp, goat, cow... And I would feel terrible if he tasted it and loved it and then never got it ever again.
