Hello, I am from the grand rapids MI and am looking for a donor in the area for my almost 4 month old daughter. (Has to be a consistent donor and provide a list of meds.) I am willing to compensate as well in any way that I can. Willing to drive reasonable distance in the Grand Rapids/surrounding area, as safely as possible (Covid)

-Does not tolerate formula well, recently diagnosed with a breathing issue so if I can keep her as comfortable as possible, I’d like to 🙂 Breast milk seems to do the trick. Consumes 3-4 oz every 2-3 hours.
Let me know if anyone can help or has some reliable information!

* i am looking ahead of time for the right donor if one is even available. I still have approx 10 weeks worth of supply until the donor won’t have enough.
Thank you in advance.
