For Milk Recipients

The Mothers’ Milk Bank of the Western Great Lakes is a
non-profit human milk bank that serves the Western
Great Lakes region, including Wisconsin and Illinois.

Order Milk for Hospital Use

Most of the pasteurized donor human milk dispensed by Milk Bank WGL is delivered to Wisconsin and Illinois hospitals for use primarily in the NICU or Mother Baby Unit.

If you are a current hospital partner and would like to order donor milk, please call 847-262-5134 or email

Order Milk for Home Use

Donor milk may be used outside of the hospital setting for many reasons including low milk supply, surrogacy, or adoption.

We require an order or prescription to dispense outpatient milk to babies and children at home.

If you would like to order milk directly from Milk Bank WGL, please complete this brief Outpatient Interest Form, or contact the milk bank at 847-262-5134.

Outpatient Dispensaries

We have a growing network of community donor milk dispensaries. To receive donor milk from a dispensary, follow these steps:

  • Contact your child’s medical provider and request an order for donor milk.  You can bring the order or prescription to the dispensary or request to have it faxed directly to the dispensary.

  • Contact the dispensary for hours, pricing, and availability.  Dispensaries accept cash and credit payments. Unfortunately, they are unable to bill your insurance at this time.

  • Pick up your donor milk during regular business hours.

Please Enter a City, County, or Zip Code to locate the nearest donor milk dispensary.
