Donor milk banking and breastfeeding in Norway.J Hum Lact. 2009 May; 25(2):206-10.JH
Milk banks in Norway have a long tradition of using raw milk. This is a practice the authors hope to continue as they see it as the best choice until a child's own mothers' milk production is sufficient. Not only will the premature babies benefit from having milk from the bank, but if a mother, for any reason, can not supply her baby while it's in the hospital her baby should be offered milk from a bank. In Norway, with a high breastfeeding rate this can be done at many hospitals.
