To the Editor Corpeleijn et al1 demonstrate that the use of donor milk as a supplement to a median intake of 89% of mother’s own milk during the first 10 days of life was not associated with decreased occurrence of severe infection or mortality in very low-birth-weight infants. However, I would like to highlight that their findings suggest other beneficial effects of this tiny amount of donor milk.
