This Texas woman now holds the new Guinness World Record for "Most Breastmilk Donated."
The woman pumped, stored and donated more than 11,000 ounces of breastmilk between June 2011 and March 2012. Her donation amount is equivalent to more than 86 gallons. The woman's son was born last year and she started pumping her milk shortly after. She pumped at work, on vacations, in the car. She never needed to buy formula.
At one point, she had filled two freezers with pumped milk and decided she needed to put it to good use. She found The Mothers' Milk Bank of North Texas. The non-profit organization provides donor breastmilk to neonatal intensive care units to feed premature and critically ill babies.
So, about a year ago she was told that she had passed the 7,000-ounce donation mark and was on her way to being the organization's biggest donor. The crazy thing is she's only 28!! That's the point where she decided to go after the Guinness World Record.
