Robyn became a milk donor after her daughter, Elliott, was born and she produced more milk than Elliott needed. Though some suggested she sell her milk, Robyn was moved by the idea of donating to a nonprofit milk bank and found Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas through online research.
Robyn’s milk supply quickly took over her family’s freezer space, to the point that she purchased a deep freezer exclusively for milk storage. She donated 100 ounces for every month that Elliott nursed. After nine months, Robyn got pregnant again and her production decreased. With the birth of her son Quinn and the return of her supply, she decided to become a donor for the second time.
