Breast milk is considered the most essential source of nutrients for a newborn baby. Breast milk contains natural antibodies that fight off diseases that could threaten a newborn baby’s development. These antibodies can’t be reproduced artificially.
Mother’s milk is absolutely necessary for an infant especially during the first six months after their birth. Breastfeeding is recommended by doctors in order for a baby to fully develop.
Obviously, it is of the utmost importance for a baby to be fed breast milk.
In a recent Facebook post, a concerned netizen is asking for donations of breast milk for a newborn baby named Phoebe whose mother died right after giving birth. Fortunately, the newborn baby is currently alive but she is in dire need of breast milk to sustain her for the next few months.
Netizens were understandably distraught by the baby’s unfortunate situation. Read some of their comments below.
For those who are interested in helping Baby Phoebe, you can send your donations to:
DR. ZOOM PEREZ of CAPITOL MEDICAL CENTER LOBBY. You can contact him at his number: +639209277012.
Make sure that your breast milk donation is placed in glass containers, polypropylene plastics, or disposable milk bags that are leak-proof. Don’t forget to put a label on it declaring the date and time that you stored it. Also, make sure to keep it chilled or frozen until you finally deposit it at the milk bank.
