The mom of two has hyperlactation syndrome, which means she pumps around 1. Her 6-month-old girl, Sophia, consumes 20 ounces a day and the rest is handed over to local moms, gay couples and a milk bank for premature babies. The precious liquid is packaged, labeled and stored in four huge freezers in the house where she lives with the girls and her husband, public safety officer David Sierra, She said: Now Sophia is 6 months old, I pump five times a day — as soon as I wake up, after breakfast, after lunch, after dinner and again at midnight.
