WHY MILK MATTERS
What milk a baby is fed really does matter.
Research consistently proves the benefits of breastmilk for all babies – it is undisputedly the ideal food for babies.
Sometimes though, a mother is not able to provide the breastmilk her baby needs – and what alternative is used matters.
This is true for all babies, but for very premature, low birth weight babies the use of anything other than breastmilk in those critical first few weeks or months can have potentially fatal consequences.
This is where Milk Matters, a breastmilk bank, can step in to provide a safe alternative – donor breastmilk: a life-saving option for many premature babies.
Why get the donor milk from Milk Matters?
Milk Matters is run according to internationally accepted protocols, designed to maintain the highest possible safety standards, and has policies that protect and promote breastfeeding, including for babies who receive donor milk.
Milk Matters provides only screened, pasteurised donor breastmilk from healthy, screened mothers who willingly donate their breastmilk to help other babies.
