Wow Lily. This post hit right to home for me. I literally could've been reading my story (except the whole natural birth go girl!). I have struggled every. single. day. with the fact that I can no longer breastfeed. I've felt judged and ashamed. I had an overabundance of milk, and didn't know that I could've just taken a Claritin or something to help decrease my supply. I also have Ehlers-Danlos with Raynaud's, and now I'm wondering if that was part of the problem as well. I teared up reading this and how painful it was for you, because I remember. Oh boy do I remember. I'm so happy you were able to find donor milk. If I have the same struggles next time, I'll also now know about HM4MB and EoF. I am proud to babywear and cloth diaper, at least! :) Thank you so much for sharing your story, and a million thanks to the milk mamas out there. Keep up the good work.
