It has taken years but science, medicine and parents know that breast milk is the best food for babies. A mother's own breast milk is the gold standard of nutrition for babies. As more and more has been discovered about the way breast milk is made we are finding that a mother naturally makes a milk that is microscopically designed to provide exactly what her baby needs. However breast feeding is not always easy and problems often occur when babies are born too early and when time is of the essence a mother might not have the milk supply her baby needs at the time it's needed. This is where a Milk Bank can literally be a lifesaver.
