Ultrasonic homogenization more efficient than hand-stirring in retaining fat, caloric content of human milk after freezing for 3 months.
Donkey milk instead of cow's milk? Why not human milk for human babies??!!

Science jobs from Universita' degli Studi di Torino: job description
Aim of the project is the evaluation of a human milk fortifier obtained from donkey milk in preterm infants nutrition and its comparison with fortifiers obtained from cow milk (currently available fortifiers). A prospective randomized trial will be performed on sixty preterm infants with birthweight <32 weeks, maternal or donor human milk fed. The enrolled infants will be randomized in two groups according to the type of fortifier used. ...
Or... we could just feed babies their mother's milk...
ASU receives Grand Challenges Explorations funding | ASU News: Projects that are receiving funding show promise in tackling priority global health issues where solutions do not yet exist. Chen’s research is aimed at improving infant health in developing countries by creating an alternative human milk protein delivery system in edible plants that is sustainable, readily accessible and available and cost effective. Chen is producing a cocktail of human milk proteins that will be engineered into the protein bodies of common plants such as lettuce or rice that can be consumed directly or formulated into baby food.
Great feature on Marian Tomson, co-founder of La Leche League. The reporter notes, "Tompson told me that the original seven founders initially had no ambitions to start an international organization."
Promoting the health benefits of mother's milk before it was popular - chicagotribune.com: When Marian Tompson had her first three babies in the 1950s, she wanted to breast-feed each, but she had complications. Her first child spit up too much. With the other two, she worried that she wasn't producing enough milk.
Three separate pediatricians discouraged her from breast-feeding for longer than six months and told her to switch to formula.
But with her fourth child, Tompson nursed more freely. She and her husband found a family doctor who supported breast-feeding and whose wife, Mary White, had breast-fed their children. White had given birth in her Franklin Park home and was adamant about bucking the bottle-feeding trend of the day.

It is proven that human milk helps infants to grow and overcome serious morbidities.
Medela is committed to supporting, promoting and providing the latest breastfeeding research through comprehensive education. Our goal is to increase breastfeeding initiation and duration which research clearly demonstrates will improve outcomes. Medela has partnered with Paula Meier, RN, DNSc, FAAN, to develop education programs that focus on the latest research and evidence using research based technology. This half day program is comprised of three talks detailing the scientific evidence for the use of human milk for vulnerable infants and mechanisms to ensure its delivery.
