Donor Milk: Is it Scarce or a Secret?
Donor milk is often an underutilized resource. Human milk donation has happened since the beginning of time through wet nursing and bottles. There are many reasons babies may need extra nutrition that their parents temporarily may not be able to provide. When supplementing becomes necessary donor milk can be a viable and sustainable option. However, many parents they have never heard of it and/or they don't know where to get it. Also, many parents have an abundance of milk and may not know what to do with it. This presentation will focus on how lactation professionals can do a better job of promoting donor milk and thereby promoting exclusive breastfeeding.
