there are tons of reasons for a woman's body to not produce milk either.... nipple size and shape can sometimes be unconducive to breastfeeding with some women, milk duct infections or plugged milk ducts can also make breastfeeding hard for some.

Re: Most Donated Breast Milk - Meet the Guinness World Record Holder

My son was born premature and therefore spent the first few months of his life in the neonatal unit. Women were persuaded to breastfeed as breast milk is much better especially for premature babies.
I know some women though couldn't breast feed as the babies have to stay in their incubators. They are usually fed through a tube in the nose that goes directly to their stomach. Not holding your baby can sometimes impact on the amount of milk you produce.
Women were required to use a breast pump and pump your milk a few times a day and leave it in bottles in the hospital fridge so your baby can be fed. Can rather daunting especially if your premature baby is unwell.
I know of many mothers that would donate milk to the hospital so that the babies could get some good milk. I'm talking mothers who were not in the hospital with their own but visited often with supplies of breast milk. I'm pretty sure it makes a difference to those prem babies. Well done to her and all those that donate.

I don't have kids so I have no experience in this, but I know there are many reasons why a woman can't produce enough milk or her baby won't nurse. I was just saying that the body doesn't necessarily produce a high yield just because the milk is being removed from the body (through nursing or pumping). Your post is very informative.

Re: Most Donated Breast Milk - Meet the Guinness World Record Holder

I wonder about the women in parts of Africa who are starving themselves and still nursing babies.

In a Mondo Bizarro movie, I saw a woman nurse a puppy, too.

oh , i follow you.. my bad

you're absolutely right...the body doesn't necessarily produce a high yield just because the milk is being removed from the body. my wife had to return to work 3 weeks after having our daughter so she had to pump at work and in the mornings so i could bottle feed my daughter... she had issues with producing enough milk even though she was pumping (what seemed like) all the time.

Re: Most Donated Breast Milk - Meet the Guinness World Record Holder

I imagine it probably has something to do with genes, as well as other things. Depends on the woman, I guess.

I also wonder how women in Africa manage to nurse. I remember hearing about Selma Hayek nursing a child when she was doing volunteer work. I don't remember where it was. She was nursing her child at the time and was kind enough to volunteer her services. That wasn't the volunteer work, it was extra.

Re: Most Donated Breast Milk - Meet the Guinness World Record Holder

My great niece was a month early and wouldn't nurse. My niece went to the hospital, which, fortunately, was near her house, to pump three times a day.

She still won't and she's 5 months old now, but, she's healthy and has gotten much bigger :)

Women who are truly starving won't produce milk in any substantial amount if at all.

In starvation, the body starts shutting down all non-critical functions and all resources are increasingly allocated to survival only.

The body will actually start to 'eat itself' by first utilizing fat and then the protein of muscle and organs in a strategy of survival.

I feel so bad for starving children. I can't watch those commercials with the starving children sitting in shacks or dirty puddles, starving, flies gathering around them. Makes me so sad. I wish I had the resources to help them all.
