For parents and medical professionals who are concerned that a premature baby might not be getting enough nutrition, and moms who simply need a break from nursing for personal or health reasons, Medolac sterile donor milk may be the answer. Medolac offers shelf stable (stored at room temperature) and commercially sterile donor milk, available to any baby. Mother’s milk is the best nutrient for babies, especially premature babies.
Elena Medo founded Medolac Laboratories because it fits with her philosophy about the importance of being socially responsible. Along with her daughter, Adrianne Weir, they are dedicated to helping premature babies thrive as well as helping breastfeeding moms who may need a break from nursing. The health and well-being of infants and empowering women is their mission.
Medolac “banks” donor milk, which can be stored at room temperature and shipped in 4-ounce sterile packets to any location. Around the world there is an unmet need for a source of donor milk with no limitations for use.
Infant formula has been the standard nutritional source in hospital neonatal units for many years. However, research shows there is a connection between infant formula and an increased incidence of infection and death in premature infants. Sadly, the second leading killer of premature infants is the intestinal infection, necrotizing enterocolitis, or NEC.
Now, for the first time ever, parents who need breast milk can buy it from a licensed milk bank. Maybe mom didn’t pump enough for the week, or is taking a medication where she can’t breastfeed temporarily. It is also a great nutritional source in cases of surrogacy or adoption.
Medolac offers two options: Co-op Donor Milk can be used for any baby and Benefit 20 was formulated to provide 20 calories per ounce. Benefit 20 is used in hospitals and homes for infants who require added nutrition. Both products are the preferred choice of leading hospitals. They can be stored at room temperature, are commercially sterile, have a long shelf-life and are ready to use.
