I am a mama of an 8 month old baby girl and a 3 year old boy. I breastfed mostly and pumped as needed with my first and am currently doing the same with our second. While we were preparing to move across country, I was trying to figure out the best way to transport my milk. While inventorying it, I discovered quite a few bags leftover from 2018, when I was pumping with our oldest. I felt instantly sad to realize that milk had just been sitting, frozen and unusable. No fear, I'll turn it into soap. I did however decide that I WOULD NOT let that happen to the milk I worked for this time. Booby Food popped up under one of the hashtags I follow on Instagram and the timing couldn't have been better! Thank you, Universe! I set to do my research into them and INSTANTLY fell in love with the company and their process and what they stood for. I was hoping to be able to get my milk shipped before we moved but the timing didn't work out. We put it on ice and brought it all with us still set on shipping it one we got settled. I now have my appointment scheduled and can't wait until the time comes that I get to ship it off! I'm so excited to be able to have my milk set into a form that I can use for years as my youngest babe grows. To be able to give her the nutrients she'll need when she's sick or just needs a little boost. I'm glad to not have to feel rushed to figure out how to use my breastmilk or worry about having a stash frozen that I could potentially lose in a storm or power loss. So thank you again, Universe for putting Booby Food in our lives!
