Abstract

There is a paucity of literature on the topic of banked donor breastmilk use for healthy newborns. Herein, we describe two cases demonstrating the day-to-day medically indicated use of pasteurized, banked donor breastmilk in the University of Iowa Children's Hospital newborn nursery. These cases may inform scientific opinion about the role of banked donor milk for healthy newborns and may also facilitate research on the use of banked donor milk for this population.
