Pumpkin Pie Playdough Treat Bags! { Free Download }

Ah, Halloween...

That blissful time of year in Colorado that used to signify the first impending snowfall (cue costumes buried under winter coats). Although now Facebook is full of posts proclaiming Flip flops in October! I love Colorado! and I can't help but freak out internally It's not that quirky Colorado weather! It's GLOBAL WARMING! SAVE YOURSELVES! EAT THE NEIGHBORS! SAVE THE SEALS!!!!

And then I leave 5 lights on and leave a room.

Mother's Milk Bank Tour

Ready for Action!

We here at Wifey With A Knifey want to send our love, gratitude, and appreciation for the efforts and determination of all those  involved at the Mother's Milk Bank of Colorado.

As a breastfeeding mama, I know first hand how rewarding, frustrating, and tough nursing can be.  In the beginning when your milk is coming in, and your baby is so incredibly small it seems like that precious gold doesn't start to flow soon enough.  Now 2.5 years down the road I realize how incredibly lucky I have been to have had the opportunity to give my baby with special food allergies the milk and nutrition for her to grow.  Not all families are as lucky as mine.  Some families are in desperate need of life saving breast milk.  Some have milk, but have lost their babies and need a way to feel connected to the lives of others during their loss.  Some mamas have an overload of breast milk sitting in a freezer at home that another baby could really benefit from.  Some just have no idea what a milk bank is, or that what happens before milk arrives to them to feed their tiny little ones.

Back in December, Wifey and I had the pleasure of visiting and touring the Mother's Milk Bank of Colorado.  Located across from St. Luke's hospital in Denver, this once small effort now reflects the hard work and determination of many women.  Today the Mother's Milk Bank is a safe haven for hundreds of ounces of precious breast milk, pasteurized, tested, and sorted and ready for babies in need all over.  The clinic works long hours to maintain the milk supply donated by mother's from all over Colorado and other satellite milk bank sites around the country.
