Does anyone have any information on babies who literally could not survive on formula, and rely on donated breastmilk for survival?
I thought I once read an article on a milk donation website about how some babies have certain conditions that make them unable to survive on formula. These were cases where the babies were dying until they started receiving breastmilk.
I would like to find info on this to further prove the importance of breastmilk, and that breastmilk can be life-giving.
I'd like credible references, not just any person's opinion on the subject.
Any info would be appreciated, as my searches online have come up short. Thanks!
