Which Babies Qualify for Donor Milk?


Ideally, any infant who cannot receive his or her own mother’s milk would qualify for donor milk. Currently, donor human milk goes to the most medically fragile infants first before being made available to others.


The babies who qualify for donor human milk are:

  • Very low birth weight babies

  • Babies born premature 

  • Some babies with allergy or infectious disease.

  • Some post-surgical babies

  • Babies who cannot tolerate formula

  • Babies with any need for  the milk as decided by their medical team
