The milk banks, act as a medium for the mothers who wants to donate or recieve the breast milk for free. But the banks give priority to the babies who are sick. The milk banks collect the milk from a per-screened mother of a baby who is under six-months of age. It is then pasteurized and offered to the nearby hospitals.
But the Professional Association of Pediatricians says that although breast milk is the best option for the newborns, but still the mothers who cannot lactate their child should not turn to the Internet, because the unknown donors can be use medicines for infectious diseases like AIDS or hepatitis so you can't be sure that the mothers milk is harmless for the child. And in addition to that, the quality of milk can deteriorate during its transportation.
It is not at all ethical to sell the breast milk for profit. Because it is something personal, which should be shared by the newborn and his/ her mother, reported Mail Online.
