A couple new breast milk banks have opened and one of them is in China! Contaminated baby formula has been an ongoing issue in China, that started back in 2008 with an outbreak of melamine, a chemical that is used to make resin. The substance was found in baby formula after several infants developed kidney stones, over 50,000 were hospitalized and some even died. Chinese baby formula makers used melamine to apparently increase the protein level in the formula. One would think that Chinese mothers would immediately turn to breastfeeding with such a scare, however it has always been difficult for new moms in China to get the breastfeeding support they need. Chinese employment laws push moms to use formula and many women have to return back to work shortly after giving birth. Many Chinese factories don't provide adequate space for pumping. Hospitals get perks from formula companies and samples are often given to new moms. The new milk bank in China is located in Guangzhou Women and Children's Medical Center and is scheduled to open in June. Over eighty women have pumped their breast milk and donated it to the bank since March of this year. While one milk bank will not be able to provide coverage across China and it's gazillion number of moms, this milk bank is a step in the right direction and hopefully other provinces will follow suit. The other new breast milk bank will open in Orlando, Florida and will be the states first milk depot.
