(BBC-US)   The Food and Drug Administration recommends against feeding babies human breast milk that was sold or donated online. But there's nothing in there recommending against adult consumption, so you're probably good   (bbc.com) divider line 42

Preferred straight from the source, thank you. Donations may be made in person.

I will donate a nice salty spread for your morning toast. Kinda of like Vegemite, but whitish.

Yeah, I don't get what's supposed to be so "beneficial" about e coli. Pasteurize your damn milk no matter the source dammit!

Yeah, it's not exactly a good idea to get human milk from anonymous donors.

How the fark do you know it is even milk?

There is a milk bank operating here in Portland. They claim to pasteurize the milk so it's safe, but it still seems weird to me.

Here's a link.

You know I have access to the stuff.  Friend's wife just had a baby.  I have threatened to make icecream with it.  It must be done.  My girlfriend hates that I call it mammal juice, she is right it's not really a juice.
I call it mammal juice if people are going to call silk soy "milk"

Technically it's a modified sweat.  Mammary glands along with sweat glands are as far as we know limited to mammals and possibly other synapsids(obviously long extinct).  Sweat glands and mammary tissue share similar genes and development structures.  This makes since when we look at "primitive" mammals like the platypus.  They lay eggs, but here is the gross bit.  They "juice" their eggs.  If you had any cute ideas about the foul beast that is the platypus do not read further.
They hold their eggs on their belly and coat them with milk.  Seems it helps the eggs and when those young hatch they simply lap the milk from bare patches on the mother's skin.  Not a cute image.  Imagine a platypus, laying in its stinky mud hole, holding its eggs, juicing them and waiting for its puggles to emerge from their muddy milk eggs. This isn't the Jersey Shore it's a monotreme mud hole and the sick story of milk.    Yes, the correct name for young monotremes is puggle.

I can live with that.

The screen the mothers, and pasteurize it.

That there is a raw human breast milk black market boggles the mind though.

Exactly.  You have no way of knowing the health and diet of the donor.

Pasteurizing human breast milk kills off the most important properties, the antibodies that protect a baby from all the diseases he or she hasn't met yet.

What's shocking is the FDA even needs to issue this recommendation. What sort of stupid, stupid person would do this to their child?

CSB Time!


My sister-in-law decided to have babies again after her oldest daughter had one.  (Yes, white trash, how didja guess?)  She did the usual pump and refrigerate thing, and at one point produced so much milk that she ran out of baby bottles...

Her husband is a senior Merchant Marine - captains a tug that pushes giant cargo ships and tankers around a large US port.  For his 5-day on, 5-day off shifts, he takes his half and half for coffee to work in a repurposed jelly jar and stores it in a fridge in the galley on the tug.  (Yeah, tugs have galleys, apparently.)  One day he grabs his "cream" and heads off to work.  But when he gets there he realizes he grabbed the wrong jar, but puts it in the fridge anyway.

You see where this is going...

So three days into a five day shift, Captain Brotherinlaw notices that the contents of the jar are gradually disappearing.  So he calls all hands on deck, and says "OK, which one of you motherfarkers has been drinking my wife's breast milk?  It was in a jar in the fridge."

And the biggest, burliest, most ink-covered, rude, arrogant arsehole of a merchant marine first turns beet red, then Kermit green, and rushes to the gunwale to puke his guts out over the side.


CSB

[more fun:  My brother in law is Filipino, 5' 4" tall and 250 lb, all muscle.  Even the muscles on his head are ripped.  He's almost as wide as he is tall, and he wouldn't drink that stuff on a dare, even though it came out of his 6' 4" 140 lb wife.  They look like Boris and Natasha.]

You made up a stupid name which adds nothing except an opening for you to give a pointless speech.

It is "natural", therefore must be healthy, nutritious and safe to eat/drink. Like any organic food, granite, and cyanide.

I'm very familiar with that.  I'm surrounded by people that think they are Mother and Father Earth, and all because they had a child.

Well, one would hope they do an HIV test...

Please?

/risk of transmission quite high, actually, in Africa many infants get HIV from mom's breast milk and not peripartum

I was looking too donate mine a few months back as I had massive overstock. You can donate it to milk banks for preemies in hospitals.

There are also donation sites on FB and like that you can help feed others babies. Never was into that, because it wasn't sanctioned or screened

I think you can sell it, but isn't advisable.

I had a chance to taste some once when my friend had a baby.  I declined since I said I'd only try from the tap.  It was turned down.  Probably because her husband was there when I said it...

It's fine. It just tastes like low fat, almost skim milk that's more sugary than usual.

Isn't it interesting how it is considered awkward for Human adults drink human milk, but its completely normal in our society to drink milk from a cow or goat!  Humans are the only animal that not only drink the milk of another species, but we are also the only animal that drinks milk after infancy!  Even a calf knows when it grows up that it shouldn't drink milk anymore!

I am more surprised any human is stupid enough to decide what should go in their mouths based on what a stupid cow puts in its mouth. Even cows know grass is good for you!

There, I said it.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned that human breast milk has natural laxative properties. And not only that, it will make your bathroom smell like a ginormous baby shiat.

Well considering that Casein (the protein in cows milk) is the most significant carcinogen that most humans consume

on a daily basis, if you drink milk after infancy, you are dumber then a cow!  Even a calf knows that grass is better for them than their own mothers milk after infancy, when are you gonna learn?
