"Human Milk Saves Lives. 500 U.S. & Canadian preemie infants die annually, and 5000 more are sickened, from Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC). Feeding these fragile babies human milk has been shown to reduce the risk of NEC by 79%. NEC causes indescribable anguish to babies and parents. Just one NEC-related surgery can cost $200,000; not including lifelong complications and treatment. The AAP recommends donor milk for fragile babies, yet 60% of NICUs don’t use it. Read FAST FACTS for more.
Whether it’s delivered at the breast, by pumping or by donor, human milk IS Miracle Milk™. It is a complex “living” elixir of hundreds of ingredients that have the power to save lives, prevent disease, and promote and protect our health from birth — and for a lifetime. We don’t need more science, we need more solutions to help more moms get more Miracle Milk™ to more of our fragile babies! "
Hooray for Miracle Milk!
