Powdered breast milk
Welcome to my site. This site has been created to share my experiences with dehydrating and powdering breast milk.
I am a mom to twin daughters and spend a lot of my time breastfeeding. I started to think about ways to make it easier and less stressful because when you are a working mother of twins time is of the essence!
I would find that I was spending a lot of time breastfeeding, pumping excess milk at work and then trying to use it all up before it expired. I’m sure that a lot of people have been through this and probably faired better than I at using up their supply in time but I found that much of my breast milk was being poured down the drain. I’d let it sit too long at the back of the fridge. Powder breast milk to the rescue!
My family and I have been dehydrating and storing breast milk over the last year and it has been a lifesaver for me. I have been able to extend the life of the milk and use it for all kinds of things that I couldn’t previously because I was always fighting time and only had a limited amount per week. Now I feel like I’m “swimming” in breast milk and that has freed me to experiment with it. I will be showing you how i make yogurt, smoothies, facials and more.
I have posted a series of videos showing you how I pump the breast milk, dehydrate and then store it. Please go through each one and ask questions or share your thoughts.
I will also be featuring some local information as I think it’s important to act locally as well as globally. So you will also be following along on my local escapades at farmer’s markets and the like.
