Gov. Jared Polis recently signed an executive order that allocates emergency funds “to support the free distribution of donor human milk from Mothers’ Milk Bank, a nonprofit that collects and distributes donor human milk through the Rocky Mountain Children’s Foundation.” 

The release said “the emergency funds will also cover fees associated with shipping milk for both donors and recipients.” 



The American Academy of Pediatrics warns caregivers not to water down formula or feed homemade formula to your infant, the release stated.
