Non-profit Breast Milk Banks in Need of Donations



The Human Milk Banking Association of North America is calling for donations. These banks provide milk for infants in medical need of breast milk. By supporting breast milk banks we can help babies get the important nutrition they need and lessen the dependence on formula feeding which can be life threatening for premies and babies hospitalized for severe medical conditions. If you have extra milk please consider donating. Thanks.

  2. Hallie- I believe this has to due with possible transmission of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (aka mad cow). Blood donation centers (and sperm banks) generally have similar guidelines.
