Breastfeeding Moms Help Save Sick Babies in Connecticut

It’s a lot like a blood bank, but with breast milk. All the hard work is done at home.

Now nursing mothers in Connecticut can donate to the state's first milk bank depot in Guilford to help feed sick babies in the NICU — and potentially save their lives.

"I didn’t even know you could do this," said Amy Farotti, the first mother to donate when the depot opened a few weeks ago.

The milk is donated to local hospitals like St. Francis and Connecticut Children’s.

"When we give babies this breast milk, it actually, for them, is the difference between life and death, because babies who cannot digest formula will die," said Jan Ferraro, director of education at Acceleron Medical Products, which houses the milk bank depot.
