Mothers Milk

A friend sent this article today, Swiss Restaurant to Serve Meal Cooked with Human Breast Milk. Market price--women will receive just over 3 pounds per 14 ounces of breast milk. With current exchange rates, that $5.45 per 14 ounces of milk. Finally a solution for all those lactating mothers out there who are worried about the cost of a daily Starbucks latte. Texas Mommy, you are in the money ;-)

Pretty strange.

Red, you think it sounds strange, but that all depends on your perspective.

hey, this might be a legitimate possibility for me! I am Germany, still lactating and always in need of more family income.. what else is required? ;)

Mad Cow,

When is the last time you drank milk from your lactating mother? Do they feed you so poorly on the feed lot that adult cows breastfeed? I think not.
Bring it on.

Awol,

After much though, $5.45 per 14 oz is really a raw deal. It might pay for a Starbucks, but it won't make a dent in those student loans.

I meant to say, after much thought, sorry about that!

Sign me up! After he met a homeschooling Dad at a potluck this weekend, Mr. Incredible and I were jestingly discussing career options for me that would bring in the dough and let him stay at home. I think I've found my niche. I just took 300 ounces to the milk bank. Cha-ching!

Texas Mommy, maybe you can convince that homeschooling dad to start the men's edition of Building Cathedrals. My hubby could use the comraderie after a long afternoon of caring for our little firecracker!

I don't think we would want this to catch on. Instead there is a wonderful program that takes donations and the milk is used to feed preemies which could literally save their lives.

Anon, don't worry, we are just joking around! The milk bank I was talking about going to is where I donate at a local NICU that distributes nationally. I'm planning on doing a post about this on wednesday, because we've had so many questions in the comments and via email!
