    Default In vitro study finds digested formula, but not breast milk, is toxic to cells

    Thanks for sharing this information. It is important to get these studies out to the people that this information affects the most so that it can be read and help parents make informed decisions about infant feeding.

    I'm disappointed it has made some FF feel uncomfortable - mainly for them and what is obviously unresolved feelings & I hope they can see that this is a factual thread - devoid of judge mental opinions.

    I recently enquired about the new milk bank that opened up for Prem Babies only in Brisbane - the requirement was that my child be under 1 years of age (among other things such as medications etc).

    i am sure there's a lot of skeptics out there regarding this. My DH will be one. i mean, there are so many women out there who want to BF but due to a variety of reasons just can't. Then what should they do?
    As PP mentioned on Facebook you should be able to find HM4HB (Human milk for human babies) there are ones specifically for different areas. I hope you're able to find something

    Is this milk screened or pasteurised though?

    My understanding is that this is just a network that links donors and recipients who want to share. The organisation states that the onus is on parents to weight up the risks and benefits of sharing. So you would share milk without screening it for sterility.

    I don't think it is but may be wrong, that would worry me. Not the pasteurisation but not being screened

    Just did some reading on the hm4hb site, it's not screened or pasteurised. They do link to instructions on "home pasteurisation" or flash heating.
    I wouldn't be comfortable giving it to my bub if not screened tbh. Not unless it was a close family member or friend I trusted. That's just me though.

    Having said that though, pasteurisation is the process often recommended for those with HIV or other pathogens. WHO still recommends breastfeeding for 12 months for those who are HIV positive
    I didn't know that! Thanks

    There is actually new research that is showing that breast milk doesn't transmit HIV but that it could be passed on by abrasions on the nipple/breast itself, obviously while your breastfeeding....just an unrelevant piece of information for this thread.

    Really? The article I read from WHO recommends BF in HIV positive women only if other suitable alternatives are not available or safe. This was published in 2007 though, so perhaps I'm reading the wrong info.
