Who wants to buy some breast milk?
A woman is expressing her desire to sell her overabundance of breast milk. Seems her 4-month-old will only drink from the source, so she’s left with a refrigerator overflowing with mother’s milk.
We know how she feels. Breast milk is like gold. Especially when some of us could barely squeeze out a thimbleful hooked up to more breast-pumping apparatus than a dairy cow.
But not everyone is buying. Don McCormick, a spokesman for the Iowa Department of Public Health, said he was not aware of any laws in Iowa restricting the sale of breast milk, but that state health officials advised against it.
So what's a Mom to do with all that extra supply? Might we recommend some quick recipe ideas, such as Breast Milk Muffins or Lactation Lady Fingers?
