Breast milk is best for all babies, but premature babies have increased nutritional needs that cannot be met by a mother’s own breast milk alone.

By donating to Tiny Treasures Milk Bank, your excess breast milk will allow very low birth weight premature babies the opportunity to benefit from a 100% human milk diet. Milk donated through Tiny Treasures Milk Bank will be used by Prolacta Bioscience® to make human milk nutritional products including a human milk-based fortifier, human milk caloric fortifier, premature infant formula and standardized donor milk sold to hospitals for use in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) for very low birth weight premature babies. All Prolacta products are made from human breast milk.

The only human milk-based, human milk fortifier, Prolact+ H2MF®, is used to give the premature babies the extra nutrition they need and is made from milk donated through Prolacta-affiliated milk banks, such as Tiny Treasures Milk Bank. The fortifier is mixed with mother’s own milk or donor milk, if mother’s own milk is not available, to provide the combination of fat, calories, proteins and minerals preterm babies need in NICUs, as prescribed by neonatologists.

Your excess breast milk can be made into potentially life-saving nutritional products. And now you can be compensated for your time and effort!
