What Parents Need to Know About Sharing Breast Milk

Description (Dublin Core)

This is a news story from The New York Times by Catherine Pearson. Due to the nationwide baby formula shortage, new methods of obtaining milk have come about. One of those ways is sharing extra breast milk.

There is some risk involved in getting donor breast milk. Informal sharing means that it won't get checked for things like HIV or hepatitis B.

There are some health benefits to using donor milk though. One of them is immunity to COVID. For example, mothers who have been infected with COVID or have received the vaccine can pass down those antibodies to babies through their milk.
