Abstract

This is the first published case of quintuplets who breastfeed and receive expressed mother's own milk and supplemental pasteurized donor human milk. In this case, all 5 babies receive exclusively human milk at 7 months. This result is achieved because of the mother's strong advocacy for human milk feedings and a remarkable support system of 200 individuals drawn from family, friends, and congregation.
