Her daughter, who is 6 months old, drinks about 20-28 ounces a day, but Anderson-Sierra’s body produces 225 ounces daily.

She now donates the extra to milk banks, which is then sent across the country to help families who can’t breast feed still get the benefits of breast milk.

After her first daughter was born, she donated to local moms, but after her second daughter was born, she expanded her donation circle to the rest of the country.

Anderson-Sierra now spends four to five hours a day pumping, People reported.
