Abstract:

Today, there are multiple forms of human milk exchange: non profit milk banks; for profit companies selling human milk products; private milk sales; private milk donation. Milk exchange in all its forms raises numerous ethical concerns that we as a society must begin to address: assuring safety of milk for those receiving it; protection of mothers and babies supplying milk; allocating a scarce resource, making this resource less scarce.

Abstract:

Successful infant feeding is crucial to the survival of babies and the human race. Throughout history and across the world, societies have had to address alternatives to maternal breastfeeding. We will present an overview of the history of infant feeding, including the forces involved in the decline of breastfeeding and wet nursing and the rise of “scientific” infant feeding, commercial infant formulas and milk banking. We will also define and discuss milk kinship practiced in Islam and throughout the Far East and Middle East. We will cover as well the forces and organizations involved in the rise of breastfeeding, milk sharing, and milk banking over the last 2-3 decades, and the social, economic and commercial forces impacting infant feeding today. We will conclude with a discussion of how history can help us understand and influence future trends.

Abstract:

The advent of Internet forums that facilitate peer-to-peer human milk sharing has resulted in health authorities stating that sharing human milk is dangerous. There are risks associated with all forms of infant feeding, including breastfeeding and the use of manufactured infant formulas. Part one of this presentation will compare the risks of milk sharing with the risks of using infant formula and include suggestions for risk mitigation. The facilitation of peer-to-peer milk sharing via the Internet has proven challenging to many health professionals and organizations. Biomedical ethics can be used to explore medical dilemmas and find reasoned, consistent, and defensible solutions to moral problems. The principles of biomedical ethics--autonomy, veracity, beneficence, nonmaleficence, confidentiality, and justice--are applied to peer-to-peer milk sharing in the second part of this presentation. Application of these principles provides guidance to assist health workers to act ethically in their interactions with mothers and others around the peer sharing of milk

United States Angela Bond, PhD, MS

Dr. Bond is a trained laboratory and social scientist currently studying the social and public health impacts of shared human milk. Specific areas of interest include development of the microbiome of the infant, immunological responses from the parent and infant, impacts of non-parental human milk on development of the immune response and microbiome, and risk abatement practices by participants in private arrangement milk sharing. She has been specifically trained in health disparities sciences and engages in research with a perspective on social justice, gender equity, and health equity. As a Hawaiian and Cherokee heritage scholar, she has a particular passion for colonial impacts on infant care and feeding practices.

Abstract:

In the absence of adequate banked donor human milk for distribution to all infants in need, many families choose to engage in the practice of Private Arrangement Milk Sharing (PAMS), partially facilitated through social media, to procure human milk for their infants. Evidence regarding the participant and infant characteristics, and risk abatement practices is limited. This presentation explores the state-of-the-science of PAMS, characteristics of recipient participants and infants, donor screening practices, and risk abatement strategies. Results are contextualized with a socioecological framework of factors affecting infant feeding practices. Influence of health care providers, lactation support, birth attendant, and sources sought during decision making and the impact of these influences on supporting families are discussed.

Abstract:

All human babies have the right to breastmilk exclusivity. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways - breastfeeding, expressed breastmilk via a feeding device, or pasteurized donor human milk. Recently there has been much attention placed on the traditional, though professionally frowned upon, practice of informal milk peer to peer milk sharing. The increasing popularity of milk sharing via social media, the growing attention on the importance of breastmilk exclusivity, the increasing awareness of potential dangers of artificial milk, and the inability for donor milk banks to provide donor milk for more than those in critical need has led professionals and families to an impass. Even though some professionals have warned against the practice, its use is becoming more widespread. Finding policy and recommended practices can be difficult. This presentation reviews the current challenges and realities of milk sharing while helping professionals provide best practice recommendations.

Abstract:

The historical evolution of infant feeding includes direct breastfeeding, wet nursing and bottlefeeding. Before the invention of bottles/ vessels to feed babies, wet nursing was the safest and most common alternative way to feed a baby. As bottles and nipples were developed, scientific advancement improved formulas, wet nursing fell out of favor. It gradually went from being widely accepted as the most normal way to feed a baby to where we currently are as a modern society. It is negatively seen as being weird and risky behavior. When mothers do not breastfeed or give their babies human milk, they use formula to feed their babies. Given the current knowledge of lack of complete nutrition formula has more mothers are showing an interest and actively pursuing wet/cross nursing. This presentation will help us understand the history of wet nursing and offer reasons to support, advocate and be encouraging to mothers who want to participate in the practice of wet/cross nursing.
