Why not human milk?

Reposting my frustration.

Why do babies automatically receive commercially manufactured milks when they are in need of extra milk?

Why don't hospitals value more highly the milk produced by a baby's mother?

Why aren't commercial milks on prescription as medicinal products?

Why do hospitals send mothers home without proper instructions for feeding their baby?

Why do we so willingly accept non-human milk for human babies?

Why do we accept our breasts are not up to the job of fully nurturing our babies?
