Hello everyone,
I’m supporting a mom who had a 2 month supply of breast milk in her freezer but the freezer stopped working at some point on Thursday after 5pm. I believe she shouldn’t re-freeze the milk at this point. She said the milk is cool but not frozen anymore. Do you have any suggestions please? Can she re-freeze it?

Cool is subjective. CDC recommends that you never refreeze human milk after it thaws. Even stored at 40° in a refrigerator, it should be used within 24 hours.

I would think that it would still be ok since it's cool. I'm not a lactation nurse or ob nurse though.

Try to find a body builder, they’re always looking for breast milk to purchase. It’s “liquid” gold.

I actually knew a woman body builder and her boyfriend that would buy it.

We need a lot of help with babies and kids, especially when both parents are working. I know this because i have a 4 year old. But i am still healing from the struggles of trying my best to raise the kid and keeping everything afloat.

While we are planning second, i don't want to be struggling for air like the first time. And i know its going to be even crazier with two kids. I am anxious

So, where and how do you find help? Did you do it on your own, if yes, how on earth without going mad?

Have you ever recommended family to your law firm or to an attorney at the firm? My aunt and uncle are dealing with their fathers estate (turns out he had other children they didn't know about and they're struggling to establish who should get what and why). I don't want to do it myself but I thought it'd be a good idea to recommend them to another attorney at the firm. Is this a good idea or is it too messy to mix family and work?

I hope their social media is a true representation of their lives and I hope they are truly happy together with their little son 😊
