What about donor breast milk? From The American Academy of Pediatrics:
Pasteurized donor milk may be considered in situations in which the supply of maternal milk is insufficient. The use of pasteurized donor milk is safe when appropriate measures are used to screen donors and collect, store, and pasteurize the milk and then distribute it through established human milk banks. The use of nonpasteurized donor milk and other forms of direct, Internet-based, or informal human milk sharing does not involve this level of safety and is not recommended. There are risks of bacterial or viral contamination of nonpasteurized human milk and possible exposure to medications, drugs, or herbs in human milk. Currently, the use of pasteurized donor milk is limited by its availability and affordability.
The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine provides information about re-lactating and offers additional considerations about use of donor breast milk.
Re-lactating is the process by which a person who has given birth may ramp-up milk production after a period of not lactating or partially lactating.
