Peer-to-Peer Milk Sharing

Time-frame: 30-60 minutes
CERP: yes

When a parent is unable to meet her baby’s needs with her own milk, milk donated by another nursing parent may be an option. Parents have always quietly, informally received donated milk from family members and friends. Recently, parents are connecting via the internet with nursing parents they have never met who are willing to donate their surplus milk to another baby in need. Milk donors are not screened, the milk is not pasteurized, and the handling and storage of the milk is not monitored. As a result, it is essential that parents take precautions whenever accepting donated milk. This session takes a close look at the concerns regarding milk sharing and how parents can minimize the risks involved.
