Milk Dispensary

The Breastfeeding Center of Central PA is proud to be a dispensary for processed donor milk.  Sometimes supplementation is required for well babies as mothers work on establishing their milk supplies or work through latching issues. The use of donor milk to bridge the gap as these issues resolve may be a helpful tool to get breastfeeding on track. 

Bridge Milk: Limited volume of pasteurized human donor milk used in the first four weeks of life to supplement maternal milk while mother works on building supply.
