ok, a bit of a weird thought crossed my mind today.

DD1 was FF and is now 23 months old.

DD2 is BF and is 8 weeks old. I am expressing milk and intend to built up a small stash for later use.

Could I give DD1 some of DD2's milk as a drink? Would it pass on the same benefits to her health that she would have had if I had I BF'ed her?

Don't know if it would give benefits, but certainly wouldn't do any harm smile

why not, no harm in that. If i had another and managed to bf than i would give my dd some breastmilk

Does anyone know if there are any stats/research to show the benefits of doing this?
