Moms all over America and the world are crying out for a place to buy and sell their breast milk. Here is what just a few have to say.
I am looking into selling my breastmilk. I have found some sites where you can list it but it looks like men buy up most of the milk to drink. I would rather contract to feed a baby than to sell it to a random guy. If any one knows where I could find a mother to sell milk to please e-mail me……
I am also looking to sell my breastmilk. I am smoke/drug/alcohol free, very healthy and fit. I am producing way more than my newborn can consume. If anyone knows of an avenue to sell, please let me know. Thanks!
I completely agree with all of you. Iâ€™m a healthy 28 yr old w/ a thriving 9 mth old daughter and an abundance of milk in my freezer. I donâ€™t smoke,drink,or do drugs. It is absurd to me that mothers who spend large amounts of their days pumping extra milk canâ€™t be compensated, while the milk banks are making millions!! If anyone ever finds out how to do it let me
I am 19 yrs old, I have a month old daughter, I have had to slow up with my pumping because I have 2 freezers full, but I hate having to do that, I would be interested in selling my breastmilk considering my hubby is a full time student as well as full time Chef & I am a student as well, not leaving me a minute to work! I do need a small income. If the middle class is in such bad shape with the economy, stop allowing these milk banks to makes hundreds off of a bottles & allow us to be paid for what we work to produce! Men can donate sperm for money, easily, we go through 10 months of pregnancy, a life time of raising a child, and cannot get a thing..are you serious?!
One of the reasons people are so â€œeewâ€ about breastfeeding is because we are brought up that breasts are something that should be hidden, are sexually assimilated. The thought of a baby doing something â€œsexualâ€ like sucking on her breast is considered â€œgross.â€ How this came about, I do not know, but all I know is that I think it is wrong. People also think that giving other babies your breastmilk is disgusting, but if you think about it, wet nursing was VERY popular in royal families. I have to agree with a previous commenterâ€¦we canâ€™t give other children breastmilk, but we let them drink milk from a cow every day without a second thought. I agree that there should be careful screenings for diseases and such, but I also think that if you get paid to donate plasma, blood, semen, etc. you should get paid for your breast milk too! I currently have a few GALLONS of breast milk in my freezer, and I still nurse my son often, so if anyone finds out how to do it, please let me know.
Mother’s Milk says:
I sell my milk, not as a way to make money. But to genuinely help those who need it. But if milk banks can screen and charge, then why canâ€™t I?
I am in the same situation. I am producing about 80 oz a day, my daughter consumes no more than 36 oz a day. I purchased a deep freezer for my extra milk. It is full. My grandmother used to be a â€œwet nurseâ€ in the UK about 30 years ago. I am a healthy, drug and smoke free young woman. If I am going to take the time to pump, put in bottles and mail off, then I feel as though I should be compensated. Why should the milk banks make the money? People sell their eggs, sperm and plasma, why is it so hard to sell breast milk???
If anyone can lead me in the right direction please send me a message
Iâ€™m also a breastfeeding mom of a 10month oldâ€¦if anyone figures out how to sell thier extra milk, please let me know. My deep freezer is FULL! The thought of throwing it away sickens me, Iâ€™d like someone to benefit from all the hours Iâ€™ve put in:)
Healthy MIlk says:
I think that the milkbanks are ridiculous! Why can they sell our milk but we canâ€™t? I a am healthy drug free, mother with plenty of milk. I would really like to stay home with my daughter, and selling my extra milk would allow me more time with her. I think the that milkbanks should give us something for our milk. They sell it at $5 an oz. I would only sell my for $2 an oz. So if anyone is interested please feel free to contact me…..
We had a daughter in January and are in the same boat that many others here are in. We have a lot of extra milk and would like to see it used rather than wasted.
