PREMATURE babies are to benefit from a new human milk bank which has opened in Chester.

Mothers can now donate surplus breast milk to the Coun-tess of Chester Hospital's specialist baby unit where it will be used to bottle feed to newborns on the ward.

It is hoped the milk, which is easier for tiny stomachs to absorb than the diary formula version, will boost the growth of babies who are born early.
