Giving and Receiving Donor Breast Milk

While breastfeeding is encouraged as the optimal way to feed your newborn baby (or babies), it can feel like an overwhelming task. For families experiencing an earlier-than-anticipated birth, unexpected NICU stay, or temporary or long-term reduced milk supply, donor breast milk can fill a critical gap. The Twin Cities metro area, as well as greater Minnesota, is fortunate to have a number of donor breast milk options available to families. If you have an ample milk supply, these are opportunities for you to donate your extra milk, as well! Read on for a full list of options to give and receive.

That was not the way it worked out.
