Did you know you can turn frozen breastmilk into powdered milk for easier transport?
As Matthews revealed in her Q&A, she was lucky enough to have a fairly smooth breastfeeding journey. And when asked what she does with her frozen breastmilk after her stash gets to be too much, Matthews revealed that she uses a company called “Booby Food” to turn the frozen milk into powdered milk.
“Once I get a huge storage I send it off to get dry freezer and turn it into powder formula,” Matthews explained to the shock of many of her followers who didn’t know this was a service that was provided. “The greatest thing ever, especially for traveling and being on the go a lot! You don’t have to worry about making sure you have a fridge/freezer for all your milk!”
According to Booby Food’s website, it cost roughly $250 to freeze-dry 100 ounces of milk, and payment plans are available. “You’ve worked hard, lost sleep, and put your nipples through the wringer for your breastmilk, now let’s make it last as long as possible so you never waste a drop,” the website reads!

Why Brittany Matthews and Patrick Mahomes Finally Started Sharing Photos of Their Daughter
When asked why they decided to be more open with their daughter on social media, Matthews explained that the extreme privacy made it feel like she couldn’t do anything outside of their home.
“I felt like I couldn’t leave the house & when I did I had to hide and cover her,” the new mom wrote in response to the question. “We were ready to start taking her places and enjoy it and didn’t want to have to worry about people taking pictures of her and posting them.”
Mahomes made a similar comment to People in July. “It wasn’t that we were trying to show her to the world, I guess in a sense,” said the NFL star. “We were just tired of having to hide her everywhere we went. We wanted her to be a part of our lives because she is such a big part of it.”
He continued to say that “it’s something that we finally did, and it [gave us] a little relief off our back that we didn’t have to hide her everywhere. We just showed the world and let them enjoy her as much as we do every single day.”
