to the WHO's statement that says milk pumped from another mom should be used before infant formula? I can't find it but I know I read that when DD1 was a baby. Parents magazine has a q&a about sisters sharing BM and they say to use formula, because its not safe.
So I am emailing them. I did find this from the CDC:

What can happen if someone else's breast milk is given to another child?
HIV and other serious infectious diseases can be transmitted through breast milk. However, the risk of infection from a single bottle of breast milk, even if the mother is HIV positive, is extremely small. For women who do not have HIV or other serious infectious diseases, there is little risk to the child who receives her breast milk.

But I was hoping to find something that says its better than formula. Thanks for your help!
