Donor Milk in Vermont

Receive milk

Across the State of Vermont, 40% of our newborns need supplemental feeding in the first few weeks of life. The Vermont Donor Milk Center, Inc. is the first outpatient initiative in Vermont to bridge the gap in infant nutrition and is the first LOCAL resource for families to obtain pasteurized donor human breast milk.

Current research highlights many benefits of human milk for babies including antibodies for a healthy gut and strong immune system. In times when comprehensive breastfeeding from the birth parent isn’t available or possible, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the US Surgeon General, and the World Health Organization have stated that safe, pasteurized donor human milk is the next best option.
