Milk Donation Site Opens in Crown Point
March 28, 2014 — A growing body of research indicates that when it comes to feeding babies… breast milk has significant advantages over formula. But when a mother isn’t able to breastfeed, she often feels forced to turn to formula. A group of passionate caregivers want parents to know there is another option… and it’s as close as your local milk bank.
The Indiana Mothers’ Milk Bank recently opened its first drop off location in Northwest Indiana. Lakeshore Reporter Sarah Holst was there for the launch party and shares how donated breast milk is helping sick infants across the state.
