Question by  karras2000 (3)

Is canned women's breast milk/powder available for purchase from any company?

Alternatively, why medically can we not keep the women's breast milk continue for milking just like in cows for a longer period to get a healthy human milk to feed to the needy?

There are no commerical breast milk suppliers. Women can lactate for prolonged periods, however the quality of the milk changes. Breast milk banking, done in Europe, could be an option.

There is beef and dairy cattle. A beef calf feeds off its mother. A dairy calf is fed with powdered milk from a month old and its lactating mother is machine milked. A human baby has the same one to one relationship with its mother as a beef calf.
