About me

Welcome to The Drop! Instant access to human milk for all infants The first app matching breast milk donors to recipients in real time. We’re supporting a growing movement of cooperative feeding. The Drop matches milk donors to recipients, and helps families build a network of supply and support. Search by distance, filter by specific criteria (allergies, food sensitivities, etc.), match by age, make The Drop! Why the Drop? Because breast milk is magic. Human milk provides all the nutrients necessary for growth and development, and it protects against diseases. Experts advise that infants should be exclusively fed breast milk for the first 6 months of their lives. But not every parent can produce or supply breast milk. In fact only 25% of infants are fed breast milk for 6 months.
