Anne McCrea said the appeal "had done wonders".
A service that helps premature and seriously ill babies has had an overwhelming response to an appeal for new mums to donate breast milk.
The Human Milk Bank in Irvinestown is used for babies in neo-natal units across Ireland who cannot be fed by their own mothers.
In September stocks had reached a critically low level.
Since highlighting the situation more than a hundred new mums have come forward.
The service is now having to buy an additional freezer to store the milk.
