When Curtis and Katie's newborn baby spent time in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Katie formed a habit of pumping breast milk every two hours for fear it would dry up. Their second child went into the NICU, so Katie began the frequent pumping once again, eventually donating the excess milk once it was no longer needed. Katie got pregnant again after the second child, and once again, the baby had to head to the NICU, so she got to pumping yet again, but this time milk banks would not take the milk the couple attempted to donate for a variety of reasons, one of which being the medicines she was on at the time of pumping.
So, Curtis and Katie had a large freezer (pictured left) of frozen breast milk. The couple eventually had to move, and they found that transporting all of the saved milk would cost more than they were willing to pay. Rather than throw the milk away, Curtis decided he would drink the milk and see how long his body could survive on only the breast milk. Naturally, the couple is blogging the experience, with the third day's blog post currently sitting atop the blog, entitled "Day 3 and no BMs."
