Find a Milk Bank

What is a Human Milk Bank?

As per pediatricians, mother's milk is the best food for a baby, especially during the first 6 months of life. Breastmilk is tailormade to suit the needs of a newborn. The digestive system of a baby is still underdeveloped at the time of birth & he/she has lesser resistance to diseases as compared to adults. It is easy to digest, contains all the essential nutrients & it also helps to improve the baby's immune system.

However, some women are unable to produce enough breastmilk to satisfy their baby's hunger. In such a scenario, most women switch to formula milk. Earlier, this was the only option but now, many women who produce large quantities of breast milk, donate it to Breast Milk Banks, also known as Mother's Milk Banks, where it is stored safely. Milk Banking is a very common practice & is widely accepted. There are many women who volunteer as Breast Milk Donors & support this noble cause. One can easily get breastmilk from these Human Milk Banks. This is a great way to provide breast milk to your baby as it is immensely beneficial for your baby.
