Milk Sharing in Islam:

  • The primary source of legislation is Quraan, the holy scripture, followed by the Sunnah of Prophet Mohammad interpreting and applying the Quraan, then scholarly reasoning applying basic rules in obtaining religious rulings.
  • Basic rules to direct reasoning and set priorities:
  • Seeking simplicity.
  • Preserving life.
  • Preventing damage has priority over bringing benefit.

Milk Sharing in Austria:
Actual benefits have priority over possible benefits.Informal Milksharing or wetnursing happend throughout the history of humans. Only the last 100 years it became a matter of getting institutionalised. Milk banking was devoloped in Austria as part of a public health campaign. This presentation gives you a glimpse on the history of Milk banking in Austria, tells you the many ways how milk is shared currently in the heart of central Europe and gives you two short examples how mothers managed so their baby would receive human milk, when they were not able to. One adopted her child from a lay-mother, the other mother had to be in intensive care shortly after delivery.

Brazil has a formal milk sharing system and an informal practice.Formal Milk Sharing was established during the 20th century with the organization of the Brazilian Milk Bank Network. Today it has more than 210 centers and is present in every state of the country. The Network:
  • promotes health for women and children,
  • generates and disseminates scientific and technological knowledge,
  • integrates and builts partnerships with federal and private organizations.
  • promotes and supports Breastfeeding;
  • collects and distributes certified human milk.
  • contributes to decrease child mortality rate
  • contributes to install Milk Banks other countries.

Cross breastfeeding is not recommended by the Secretary of Health in Brazil, and selling and purchasing human milk is forbidden by national law. There are few papers about cross breastfeeding in Brazil, but they suggest that this practice is very common although not recommended.
