Got Breast Milk?

For Hidalgo, the donation is an opportunity to rewrite history. She was on the other side of the table when her older son wouldn't latch, but a lot of these resources for milk sharing weren't out there six years ago. "Breast is best," Hidalgo recites. "And if you can't do that, you feel like a failure." Hidalgo says it contributed to postpartum depression until she came to terms with the fact that she was providing her baby with what she could. "I remember that feeling." So she plans to keep pumping even while weaning. "People think I'm a little crazy, but you get connected with these people. You're helping support them a little bit, and it feels good to do that."
