Breastfeeding your baby is such a wonderful and beautiful experience, and the promotion of exclusively breastfeeding your baby has been quite successful. Though I was not successful with bringing my babies to breast, I was very proud to provide breast milk to my babies by breast pumping.
Unfortunately, the promotion of bringing baby to breast causes some guilt to those of us who are unable to do so, even though breast pumping can give great benefits beyond our own children. By breast pumping breast milk, mothers are able to provide a huge service to babies and parents by donating their extra breast milk to donor banks.
It can be a very time-consuming process, especially for those us who do not live close to a donor bank; however, the incredible feelings that one receives knowing that their precious breast milk has not only provided great benefit for their own baby, but possibly given life-saving benefits to other babies in great need, can be exhilarating.
