FAQ

If you have any questions, we can answer them for you. 

See frequently asked questions or contact us.
Can you use spoiled milk (expired) or milk containing traces of alcohol?
Yes, we can accept frozen breast milk at any stage even if it is spoiled/expired, contain traces of alcohol or medicine in the milk. Although fresh milk will provide us with the most in-depth insight, there is still plenty of information that we can get from moderately spoiled milk. 
Can I send you milk in my bags?
Yes, you definitely can. Please follow these directions to send milk in your own bag:

1. Place the ice pack at the bottom, your milk bag on top of the ice pack, and the cardboard insert on top of both the milk and the bag.

2. Place the instruction card on top of the cardboard insert (we need the ID code on the card).
How much breast milk will you need? 
The bottle in our collection kit is 60 mL. Please fill it up to the top. Often times, multiple analytical methods are used for analysis. We also like performing replicates of the study to reduce error. 
Do I need to pay for shipping (or anything, for that matter)?
For the Project Breast Milk collection kit, we will not ask you to pay for anything. All we ask is the donation of your breast milk.
Can I donate if I live outside of the U.S.?
Unfortunately, due to high shipping costs, we are only accepting milk from the U.S. at this time. Please sign up for our emails to get updates on Project Breast Milk and learn about other opportunities to help.
What are you doing with my breast milk?
NAMUH will be studying the molecular components of your milk in various world-class labs to: 

1. Learn more about breast milk since there has been limited research and information. 

2. Develop a data-driven formulation that is molecularly equal to breast milk.
What is your privacy policy?
We will not be leveraging any of your personal information including your name, DNA or address for our study. We will only be using information for shipping and emails.
Isn’t breast milk something that has already been extensively researched?
Breast milk hasn’t been studied as extensively as you may think or expect. Most studies are quite narrow in scope or low in the number of samples due to the lack of funding in this field.
