August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month. This month's post is from a mom who knew that she wanted her babies to receive breast milk because she was aware of the numerous benefits it provides. Here, she tells her experience providing breast milk for her little ones and how beneficial donor milk was when she wasn't able to provide the full amount her baby needed shortly after birth.  She also shares her plans to pay it forward. We thank Alyssa for sharing her story with us!
