After spending time in a NICU with Sam and seeing the tiny babies whose moms often medically couldn’t provide the milk they’re baby needed, any over supply I have will definitly go to Toronto’s new Milk Bank!
If you have a freezer full of breast milk you’re never going to use please consider donating!
How to donate.
