Donor Milk Fed Infants - Vitamin or Mineral Supplements

Pasteurized donor milk has much of the biological and many of the beneficial properties of mother’s milk. But some minerals and vitamins like Vitamin C, B Vitamins, and Zinc can be low.

If your baby is getting donor milk from a milk bank and getting mother’s own milk, formula, and/or baby food they will likely not require additional vitamins.

However, if baby is getting only donor milk; they probably need extra nutrients . Please discuss with your child’s medical provider and share this flyer with them.

To get all the nutrients needed, your infant may need an infant multivitamin AND a product with Zinc.

Infant Multivitamin should include:

• Vitamins A, C, D, E and B vitamins

Examples of infant products that supply Zinc (not a complete list):
• Kiddivit Baby Zinc with elderberry, C D
• Wellements Baby Immune Support Vitamins
• Zarabee’s Immune Support and Vitamins
