Pasteurized Donor Milk from Mother’s Milk Bank of Colorado
We have a limited amount of pasteurized human milk available for purchase at the Center for short term supplementation needs. The cost at this time is $22.50/4oz bottle. Please call the office prior to coming over to ensure we are stocked.
This is the safest type of donor milk. This milk has been tested and pasteurized. It always comes from donors who have been vigorously screened and tested. Because of this, it is quite pricey.
Community Donor Milk
This is milk that is acquired locally from a local donor. When acquiring milk from a local donor it is up to you to screen your potential donor for health concerns, dietary intake, medication and drug use, lifestyle, etc. Milk acquired this way inherently carries with it some risk. Please visit Eats on Feets Four Pillars of Safe Breastmilk Sharing for more information about how to share human milk as safely as possible.
