Some mothers are turning to the Internet and getting breast milk from mothers who have a surplus. But the Food and Drug Administration says it's not a good idea.

The FDA says its unlikely donors to have been adequately screened for infectious disease or contamination risk.

Officials suggest women use breast milk from sources such as the human milk bank where donors have been screened.
