Lexington Baby Boutique Opens Milk Depot

When the freezer of Jessica Santangelo's refrigerator started to fill up with her expressed breast milk, she decided to buy a standalone freezer. Then that freezer started to fill up. Santangelo's 7-month-old daughter has started eating solid foods, so she doesn't drink as much milk as she once did. But come Thursday, it will become a lot easier for Santangelo and other women to share their milk with other mothers and babies. Mother Nurture, a Lexington baby boutique and breast-feeding resource center, is opening Milk Depot, a drop-off location for donated breast milk.
