Reasons for a Donor Breast Milk Program

Breast milk helps nourish newborns better than any other food. There are many reasons for donors and recipients to be part of a donor breast milk program.

For recipients of donated breast milk:

  • The antibodies in human milk have been shown to protect babies from many different diseases, and this protection extends into childhood.
  • Breast milk is more easily digested than formula.
  • High-risk newborns who only drink breast milk have fewer infections and other medical complications.
  • Mothers who adopt high-risk babies are unable to produce their own breast milk.

For breast milk donors:

  • Breastfeeding women who produce extra milk may want to contribute to the well-being of sick newborns.
  • Women who received breast milk for their own premature or sick baby may also want to make a difference by helping others babies when they are able.
  • There is no cost to donate breast milk.
