Donating milk?

Anyone else on here donate? Just curious how often you pump. I'm still trying to find a good pumping schedule... :]

    I donated with my first. I only pumped though. So I pumped 5 or 6 times a day. I made about 60-80 oz a day. DD ate 30-35 oz a day and the rest was frozen into 6-8oz increments.

    I used milkshare to find people to donate to.

    I didn't set out intending to donate, but I've got a decent freezer stash so I started sharing it.  I pump for 10-15 minutes after LOs first and last feedings of the day.  I was just debating adding in a noon session so I can share more.  I donate through Human Milk For Human Babies and Eats on Feets.

    I've been alternating between pumping before and after nursing my DD. I get about 100 ounces a day. My DD has gained 5 pounds since birth...she's 2 1/2 months old. So I guess my schedule is fine? lol, although slightly exhausting.

    I also donate through HM4HB. :]
