Unfortunately, we are no longer accepting Milk donations. If you have a box already, please ship it by December 6th, 2022 as it's the last day that we can accept it.
The pressure on women to breastfeed starts from Day One in the hospital. Yet breastfeeding isn’t always possible, and defaulting to formula comes with guilt and shame. We can no longer stand by and accept the notion that formula must be second to breast milk.
Despite ample breast milk around us, money and scientific resources have not been focused on innovation for infants and mothers.
That’s why our group of scientists are developing the most comprehensive research for infant formula that is on par with breast milk in nutritional value.
We, at NAMUH, believe all babies deserve high quality milk whether from breast or formula.
We’re making the benefits of breast milk more accessible for all. But we need your help to fulfill our mission.
NAMUH’s Project Breast Milk will change how humanity feeds babies by decoding breast milk nutrition at a molecular level. With help from breastfeeding mothers across the country, we can collect enough data to make our vision a reality.
Send NAMUH a sample of your breast milk for the study of its molecular composition. By joining this project, you’ll get access to perks like expert guidance on infant nutrition, community support, and surprises.
Join NAMUH’s Project Breast Milk as we work toward a future when every baby can benefit from nutrients found only in breast milk today.
“I struggled to feed my daughter breast milk while working in the lab. I felt there wasn’t a good alternative to breast milk, so I had no choice but to stall my research projects. A good alternative (to breast milk) could change the landscape for working moms.”
“I was holding on to this bag of breast milk and my daughter was no longer interested in it. But, I just couldn’t get myself to let go of it. It was sitting in my freezer.Project Breast Milk was perfect because it went to research and was helping other moms instead of a landfill.”
