Amid the celebration of World Breastfeeding Day, on 1 August, the Ministry of Health of São Paulo São Paulo calls mothers to donate milk to maternity hospitals and milk banks in the state. During the holiday season and winter is a big drop in the number of donor milk.

In some units during the holiday falls are up to 55% over the remaining months of the year. Already during the winter the number of grants decreases by about 10%.

The goal of the state milk banks is to ensure breastfeeding to all newborns, including those admitted to neonatal units and children of mothers unable to breastfeed. Are the banks that store the milk donors, making the collection and teach about the importance of breastfeeding.

According to Renata Oliveira Broom, responsible for the milk bank motherhood state Leonor Mendes de Barros, a unit of the Secretariat on the east side of the state capital, is very important that the child is fed with human milk.

Breast milk contains certain elements that the milk of other mammals can not incorporate such as antibodies and white blood cells, especially for infants with weights below normal. It is therefore very important that mothers make donations to milk banks, says Renata Oliveira Broom, responsible for the milk bank motherhood state Leonor Mendes de Barros, in the eastern state capital.
