Here’s the link to a great story in USA Today about the increased demand for donated breast milk:

With a growing number of doctors saying breast milk is the best food for babies, especially hospitalized preemies struggling to gain weight, the demand for milk donations is increasing. The amount of donated milk distributed by the 10 banks of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America is growing rapidly but is still far below what’s needed, says Pauline Sakamoto, president of the association.
Milk bank managers say federal, state and local health authorities are more aggressively promoting breast milk than in the past, prompting the demand from mothers who can’t provide enough for their own children.
