I had zero education about breastfeeding. I thought you put the baby on the breast and they sucked and that was it.
But because Story had trouble latching, Jenna pumped milk any chance she could … “in the backs of cars, on the way to the set, on the freeway…” and ultimately ended up with a huge supply of frozen breastmilk.
Luckily, she also happen to find someone in need of just that — a family member of a friend had a baby who was addicted to methamphetamine and could not keep formula down. But the baby took to Jenna’s milk with no problem.
Jenna said of this “rewarding” experience:
Once a week my friend would come over and get a supply. The second the baby started on breastmilk, he could hold it down. All of the rash symptoms on his body started going away. I literally kept him alive for several months.
Of that little boy, Jenna said:
In my heart I feel connected to him, like he’s my little angel friend.
Jenna is also mom to son Easton, 8 months.
What do you think of milk sharing?
