Milk Collection & Storage Guidelines

Careful collection and storage means more milk for fragile babies!


Mothers’ Milk Bank asks that our donors have exceptional hygiene and follow careful collection and storage methods. The donor milk recipients are often the most fragile and ill infants in NICUs. In order for the milk to be used, it must be tested for any unwanted bacteria. By following the collection and storage methods outlined below, donors can help us make sure we’re able to use all of the milk that is donated. For more information, please visit the CDC’s website using the buttons below.


Mothers’ Milk Bank can provide our donors with breast milk storage bags and sanitizing steam bags. Call 303.869.1888 to place an order.
