Bootleg Breastfeeding

Some mothers cannot breastfeed for a number of reasons. Some are not allowed to because their premature babies are in the NICU at the hospital. Their milk is going to waste. Some mothers have begun to find mothers such as these online and in other ways and ask them to donate their milk. The donor mothers get to keep up their supplies and the receiving mothers get the best for their babies. Make sure to have screened mothers first for diseases that can pass through the milk. It is best to be safer rather than sorry just in case.
