Breastmilk is best for all babies, but critically ill and premature babies have increased nutritional needs that cannot be met by mother’s own milk alone.

By donating to Tiny Treasures Milk Bank, your excess breastmilk will allow critically ill and premature infants the opportunity to benefit from a 100% human milk–based diet. Milk donated through Tiny Treasures Milk Bank will be used by Prolacta Bioscience to make human milk–based nutritional products including Prolact+ H2MF® human milk fortifier (human, pasteurized), Prolact CR® human milk caloric fortifier (human, pasteurized), PremieLact® human milk for trophic feeds (pasteurized), Prolact RTF human milk–based premature infant formulas, and Prolact HM® human milk (human, pasteurized), standardized donor breastmilk, all of which are sold to hospitals worldwide. Prolacta’s fortifiers are mixed with mother’s own milk or donor breastmilk, if mother’s own milk is not available, to provide the fat, calories, proteins, and minerals critically ill infants need.

A Preemie Parent and Tiny Treasures Milk Bank Donor Story – De Onna’s Second Preemie Also Benefits From Prolacta's Nutritional Products
 
A few years ago, we shared the story of De Onna and her premature son, Micaiah, who benefitted from receiving Prolacta’s human milk–based fortifiers in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). That experience inspired De Onna to help other preemies by donating her excess breastmilk to Tiny Treasures Milk Bank, where it was used to make the same Prolacta products that helped Micaiah.
Little did De Onna know then that, in 2019, she would end up having another premature baby—this time a girl, LaMaia. Due to complications with De Onna’s cervix, LaMaia was born at 24 weeks gestation via emergency cesarean delivery, weighing 1 lb 2 oz (521 g). Read the full story here.
