One mom and 87 gallons of breast milk. That's just how much the mom in this video donated to milk banks (which primarily help premature babies). It's an incredible thing that she's done! 28 year old Alicia Richman from Texas donated for about 14 months and accumulated a total of 87 gallons of breast milk. In the above image, they stacked that same amount to give a better visual. Incredible!
The video below also goes over the milk donation process from a milk bank perspective.
There is a national shortage of breast milk, so even if you don't think you can break the world record, you should still consider donating breast milk. Alicia's donations have gone to hundreds of babies, and she's saved many lives because of the "liquid gold" (breast milk). Consider it, then seek out a local milk bank or hospital for more information!
Have you ever donated breast milk? Was your baby a recipient of donor milk?
