It's vegan if it's your own being used to feed your child(ren).

Using another woman's breast milk to feed your baby? This has never been done in the history of ever. We're breaking new ground here, people.

Is this just for women with children.

How do they feel about adult homemade mozzarella celebrity cheese fetishists?  I'm asking for a friend.

 Ten months later, she famously posted a video sharing how she straight from her own mouth with food she pre-chewed, a practice known as premastication.

Bird in brain in deed.

I wonder if you can suck on someone else's boobs and then deposit the milk in your kid's mouth?

Just for the record, vegans do not object to breastfeeding.

"I care enough about my baby to breastfeed it and seek out extra milk when I can't produce, but not so much that I'll accept any from someone that might have eaten some cheese in the last decade."

Is this to make sure that the kids don't get any veterinary antibiotics or hormones?  Because the proteins and fats in breastmilk are generated from broken-down food nutrients in the mom's body... there isn't any "cow" left in the milk.

I guess this makes it 100% clear that her kids are raised vegan as well.  Hmmm...

There was a huge uproar in Phoenix when some mother left her child in daycare and one of the workers, when the kid was being fussy and hard to handle, whipped out her breast and suckled the kid.

How about starving your Vegan child to death to prove how Vegan you are?
 
2013-07-02 11:37:20 AM  
I sort of understand the concept and the spirit of vegans, but why work around the natural process of breast feeding if you don't HAVE to?  Human bodies evolved over many tens of thousands of years to do something that amazing.  What these vegans are doing is unnatural and potentially harmful.  And really, if you're that much of a disciplined vegan trying to live a certain way, probably the most natural and vegan thing you can do is to just let that little meat-needing sucker die.

If your diet is causing your inability to properly feed your baby... maybe there's another, simpler solution.

Isn't the whole Vegan thing about not imposing harm to other animals? Breastfeeding your own baby is voluntary, milking a cow isn't really voluntary.

My bigger question is how many Vegans have cats or dogs?  Do they feed them soyfood?

Wet-nursing is an ancient tradition, and it has generally been considered highly respectable. Then again, it has also generally been considered akin to a professional arrangement, and that doesn't really sound like what she's looking for.

One of my cousins is raising her three kids on a life-long vegan diet. The oldest is 12 and he's physically smaller than seven and eight year old kids from other relatives.

I have an acquaintance who named her son "Bear". I don't quite get the logic, but whatevs. So far I've resisted the urge to say things like, "Feeling cranky and fussy? Better drink my own piss!"

How so?  Milk is obviously an animal product.  This just happens to be milk from a species of large, hairless ape rather than from a cow.

That is not actually true. For instance, I know of a few kids who had a bovine protein allergy when they were very young (it tends to go away before the kid turns two, often earlier), and their mothers can't eat anything that has a trace of beef or milk as long as they're breastfeeding.

first, any single woman can have issues breast feeding, but if issues are common in your diet-based community, maybe there's a problem with your diet.

There's a Vegan pet movement made up of various animal torturers out there.

Had an acquaintance many moons ago that was a "Raw Foodist"... whatever the fark that is. He had two Dobermans that he fed oranges and avocados and shiat. Asshole. The dogs were always way too skinny and pretty listless.

Except that Alicia is slapping a new label on a dog and pony show that's probably been around since we started walking upright and calling it "new and improved". I just see it as an amusingly vapid solution to a non problem....wait.....I mean an entirely invented lifestyle.

FTA: The idea, she explained, stemmed from an email she received from a friend and new mom, who said she simply wasn't producing enough milk and couldn't trust that those offering donor milk shared the strict vegan diet.

How would her site screen for those donating milk to be strict vegans?

Bathia_Mapes: Just for the record, vegans do not object to breastfeeding.


Yeah.  The issue here is that a vegan diet can lead to reduced breast milk production, so vegan women often  can'tbreastfeed adequately.  This just seems to be an attempt to provide adequate nutrition to babies without the mothers having to compromise their diets.  Seems pretty reasonable (for a PETA nut, anyway).

likefunbutnot: One of my cousins is raising her three kids on a life-long vegan diet. The oldest is 12 and he's physically smaller than seven and eight year old kids from other relatives.


When he's older he might realize that his short stature, caused by his diet, has radically reduced his opportunities for procreation, and if he gets the chance to sire offspring, won't foist that stupidity upon his heirs.  Or he'll just not breed, and end the line of stupidity his mother begat.

When you start taking veganism toward reductio ad absurdum, you get quite a diverse lot of absurdum. Most don't object, but some do, and they handle their objections in a variety of ways, some of which don't even get CPS called on them. Same goes for pets and the SPCA.

This - but you still have to admit it is a small percentage, and in that case it's very important that the mother pays strict attention to her diet.  In the vegan case, sadly, the mother is withholding important nutrition from their children for the sake of a made up principle - on a smaller scale but not unlike belonging to a religion that won't allow you to take a sick child to a doctor for a fatal but treatable disease.

The name "Bear" is fine and dandy in the ghey community.  Let's hope the kid doesn't turn out to be a twink, though, or it could get confusing.
