Within weeks of giving birth, first-time mother Kyra Davis realized she was producing more milk than her baby needed. The problem is particularly acute for parents of sick or premature infants, who may not be able to digest formula as well as human milk. So to find parents who wanted it, Davis joined several private groups on Facebook that are dedicated to human breast milk exchange. Some of these Facebook groups are closed, meaning that outsiders can view them but cannot join without approval, such as Human Milk For Babies, a group that has more than two thousand members and promotes donation rather than sales of milk, and Buy, Sell, and Donate Breast Milk , with more than 5, members. Davis is now donating her milk to about 7 or 8 families, most of whom she met on Facebook.

A handful of states, including California and New York, regulate milk banks the way they do tissue banks, enforcing some safety standards, and many nonprofit milk banks screen donors. Some companies and medical experts wonder if even established milk banks — whose voluntary screening practices the FDA praised in — should be doing more to ensure safety. No one knows exactly how much of this excess milk is donated or sold, but the volume is increasing.
