I had mastitis so I began pumping to relieve the pressure and help it heal. With this, I created an over supply and slowly am getting that under control. I have A LOT of frozen milk at this point. Much of which was pumped/frozen when I was on antibiotics for the mastitis and other milk that was frozen while I was taking other medications for post-partum complications (Thus, I would not feel comfortable donating the excess).
How much milk is "plenty" to be frozen? I have our freezer, and some space in a snow bird family member's freezer full. At this point DH says to dump some of it (either fresh or frozen) as he won't be buying another freezer to use for a matter of months for milk alone (as we don't need one beyond that).
I am pumping plenty to give fresh for daycare. I don't believe at this point I have used any frozen milk. I should add I am on antibiotics again, so the current milk is not what I would be comfortable donating either.
If you have an amount you can suggest... would you dump the older milk (LO is 15 weeks) given that some of it was pumped while on an antibiotic and up to 8 weeks ago, and keep the dates I know I was no longer on this or other medications?
