    Hi,
    I was wondering if somebody would want to buy my breastmilk for the twins or baby or simply themselves.
    Somebody is saying it is not save, but if you are tested? Breastmilk banks do exactly the same. I think it is better to know and take from one person. I was about to do it when I started to breaSTfeeding and didn`t have enough. I believe breastmilk is necessary for child well being.

    "safe." the word is "safe."

    And, sure, I'd rather get breastmilk from someone I actually know rather than some random person on the internet with four posts to a board I've been on for years.

    Just saying.

    Try craigslist.

    No one on this board is going to buy human fluids from a random stranger on the Internet.

    It's illegal. Milk banks donate their breastmilk. Sometimes there are pasteurizing and processing fees associated with it.

    Yes, it's illegal.

    Milk banks do not buy or sell milk. They're based on donations. And it's pasteurized so diseases cannot be transmitted to the baby.

    No one with a brain would feed milk from a stranger to their child. How would they know this person doesn't have a disease that could be passed to their baby?

    Quite honestly I'd be very suspicious of a person who would sell rather than donate breastmilk. It would make me wonder what else they'd offer up for money, if you know what I mean. I would assume a person who exhibited this sort of behavior would definitely be at risk for diseases I wouldn't want passed to my baby.

    So no one wants to buy urine to pass a drug test, either? Shoot! There goes my next money making scheme! *sigh*

    Hi Jenna. Welcome to amitys. Read all the responses to this thread and then just think about it. Why in the world would any mother want to feed their baby milk from some random stranger posting on the internet. It is not "save" (safe) nor is it legal and that would be why it is so wrong.

    Actually her post was wrong on a lot of levels but maybe you are she in disguise so I'll stop now and say thanks for the laugh. I can't imagine someone posting to this thread saying "yah! what are you asking? will you trade? can you ship on dry ice?" I just am sitting here with my jaw dropping.

    just . wow.
