Breastmilk jewellery

Post by Penguin » Wed Aug 03, 2016 9:51 pm

I want to get something made but I think I've left it too long! I'm practically dried up! Eeeeep!

Can people pm me recommendations?

Seems like I need about 30 ml according to the Internet, is that right? I'm just getting drops out.

Holy shit, I've dried up! I could tell I was calming down, but there's barely anything there.

It will come back - people who have never given birth or breastfed can bring on a milk supply. You were fully breastfeeding a baby only a few months ago. Your body knows how to do this.

It will take time, but if it is important to you, just take the few drops, and add a bit more tomorrow, and the next day. You will get a bit more every day and there you have it. It might take a month, but you can get there.
It's OK Pluto, I'm not a planet either

So I just found some ebm from when I was in hospital in the fridge. Ironically, they (erroneously) put it in biohazard bags, but after being in the fridge for months it probably is s biohazard by now!
Will stick it in the freezer, now I know I can use it for jewellery in the future. And don't need to worry about relactating, thank #$%^.
