Your breast milk - powdered!

When we freeze dry your breastmilk you get the best of both worlds - the convenience of formula and the individualized nutrition of human milk. The best part? Our process preserves your milk’s unique composition and maintains almost all the immunological and nutritional properties that were present on the day it was freeze dried.

Extend your stash’s shelf-life, lock-in vital nutrients, and simplify feeding your little one with Mothership Milk!


  • Backed by decades of peer reviewed research and already in use in milk banks around the world, freeze-drying breastmilk might sound space age, but isn’t actually new.

  • A minor reduction was observed in vitamin C, IgA, IgG and IgM when comparing fresh to freeze-dried breastmilk, though freeze-dried milk boasts superior nutrient retention compared to long-term freezing.
