Kat Von D Needed Breast Milk Donation

New mother Kat Von D has revealed she relied on breast milk donations from a complete stranger for her newborn son Leafar, who she has with her husband Leafar Seyer.

The 36-year-old tattoo artist struggled to feed the tot in the first few days since his birth, but found a donor to step in and contribute some milk during the night.

She wrote on Instagram: "During the first two days of Leafar's life, his blood sugar count had been low, and as much as I had committed myself to strictly breastfeed, my milk hadn't come in yet.

"The paediatrician suggested asking around to see if any friends might have a bit of extra milk they could donate, and if not, I'd have to consider supplementing with formula, something we personally did not want to do."

Kat explained that her midwife put her in touch with another mother, a woman she didn't know, who was able to donate a few ounces to help boost the baby boy's levels while she waited for her own milk.

The LA Ink star now hopes to do the same for another struggling mum one day, now that she is "happily breastfeeding at home".
