Breast milk is best for your baby. The benefits of breastfeeding extend more than just the basic nutrition for your little one. It does not only have all the vitamins, nutrients, and minerals that the baby needs during his or her first six months, it is also packed with disease-fighting substances that protect the baby from any diseases.
All medical and health organizations recommend exclusive breastfeeding for the baby’s first six months. Breastfeeding also boosts your child’s intelligence and improves the infant’s IQ.
However, what will happen if the mother does not have breastmilk to provide for the baby?

How To Donate Breast Milk
If you already know how to collect milk through hand expression or if you have a breast pump at home, donating breast milk will be easy. You’ll need disposable milk bags and an insulated bag or a cooler to keep the milk chilled and frozen upon delivery.
1. Donated breast milk is typically stored in disposable milk bags or food-grade polypropylene plastic or glass containers with leak-proof lids. Keep the container only 3/4 full to allow milk expansion when frozen.
2. Make sure to label the containers properly. Include the date and time of expression.
3. Store the filled milk bags in the freezer until you reach the milk bank.
