Could they make a formula out of breastmilk?

If they could would you donate so they could make it for preemies and moms of multiples? or would you feel like that would be helping the other side?


And for other concerns...Say they need a script and fairly priced.

No.

You can donate your breast milk directly to moms with premies and multiples. I've done that. No need to turn it into a synthetic product.

They make formula to mimic breast milk, not the other way around.

Are you talking about like making a formula from human milk for cows?

I'm confused.

Almost like a powdered breastmilk? Something that wouldn't go bad for a while and can be stored easily? That would be nice if people would use it!

LOL sorry. I'm nursing the little one, typing is hard  and I guess I didn't explain myself clearly. I'm talking about making a powdered formula out of breastmilk instead of cows milk to feed to human infants. Espeacially those in need.

Exactly! I was thinking about it after I read that post where all the BM is going to go bad in shipping. Plus it's not easy for everyone to find someone to donate directly.

Of I could have breathed my own kids and after was able to donate I total would have. I never produced milk with my first. And with my Ds ( born in sept) I was surprised with milk. He couldn't latch( tongue tied and even had issues latching a bottle) so I pumped as much as I could for him and by one month I was dried up I think it would be wonderful if they could create a formula made from breast milk

Why make it into a formula?  Why not use it 'as is'?

Yes I would! I wondered why they haven't done it yet! I am sure they could pay people, they do it now for blood and plasma products...actually when I was looking to donate there is a company that does this...I forget the name. But they turn it into a supplement I think. I didn't donate because technically they can't pay you for your milk but they will give you 300 dollars twards a pump...but then turn around and sell their product so I didn't like that...let me see of I can find it....
