donating breastmilk

by marley

I recently tried to donate breast milk and was told over the phone that if I taken fennugreek or consumed mothers milk tea while pumping the milk, they could not accept it.

They said that those things have been shown to upset the digestion in preemies. I had done both of those things and therefore, was unable to donate.

I was really upset and still have a freezer full of milk. I am going to try some of the above suggestions, but I would love to donate some before it goes bad too. Does anyone know how I can donate to hospitals for the Chemo, burn and post surgery patients?
