An Omaha mother who filled a standing freezer in her garage with her own breast milk is now giving the stash away to another Omaha family in need.

Andrea Kirby began pumping milk for her 8-month-old second child as soon as she was born, fearful that she would not produce enough milk to feed the child without supplemental formula. It turns out, she produced more than she could ever use.

Kirby is donating some 44 gallons of breast milk to Jen Peters, whose 2-year-old daughter suffers from spinal muscular atrophy and needs breast milk to help her gain weight and provide the antibodies she needs to keep her healthy.

Kirby and Peters learned of one another through a mutual acquaintance.
