Texas Mom Sets World Record by Donating 86 Gallons of Her Breast Milk [VIDEO]
Alicia Richman Earned a Spot in the Guinness Book of World Records With Her Kind Donations
They say everything's bigger in Texas, and that includes, at least in Alicia Richman's case, the amount of her breast milk production. The Granbury, Texas mama has earned herself a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records with her prodigious breast milk supply, which includes donating the equivalent of 86 gallons of breast milk in less than a year.
Between June 2011 and March 2012, Richman filled two freezers with breast milk she produced after the birth of her child.
That enabled her to donate 11,000 ounces of the milk to the Mothers' Milk Bank of North Texas, a nonprofit group that provides the donor sustenance to premature and ill babies, MNN.com reports.
The generous mom now has a 19-month-old child, and since the milk bank only accepts milk from moms whose children are younger than a year old, she is not currently donating.
But she has challenged other moms to try and beat her output, and vows that when she has a second child, she'll try to outdo her own world record.
