Lifesaving nourishment for your baby
Babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) depend on this lifesaving nourishment to thrive when their mother’s milk is not available. Donor milk is used by preemies and older babies who cannot tolerate formula, have a weakened immune system, or have special dietary needs.
Every drop of breast milk makes a difference in the long-term survival and outcome of a sick baby. Please consider donating your extra milk! Your breast milk can make a positive impact and benefit a baby for a lifetime.
Lee Health has two depots (dropoff locations) for the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA) milk banks. Please call to set up an appointment for dropping off milk.
