We all know that breast milk has so many benefits in the growth and development of newborns, more so than formula. It was very important to us that we exclusively breast fed especially since our little girl was born 3 months premature, weighing only 1 pound 4.7 ounces.
But with all the stress (which affects breast milk supply) and the fact that I was only 25 weeks when delivered I had a hard time getting my milk to come in. To us the donor breast milk was very beneficial in providing our baby with all the important nutrients she needed during this crucial period.
The donor milk made it possible for her to get what she needed even when I couldn’t provide it for her. At 4 months old our baby girl weighed 7 pounds 10 ounces. She is growing stronger and healthier each day!
