Breast Feeding

Breast Milk For Board on Craigslist

This ad was placed on craigslist, Berkley. Breast Milk is for babies people. The quality of it is only as good as the food the mom eats.

We are offering a free room for a woman who is willing to provide breast milk for consumption to the household. We are an otherwise vegan house but have recently read A.O. Wilson’s study of the benefits of human breast milk to all human beings of any age. This is not sexual. Neither appearance nor sexual preference are of any concern to us.

We are willing to accept one child into the house as well. We do not want to take breast milk away from a nursing child however. We also don’t need gallons of breast milk but whatever you can muster; it is a nutritional supplement for members of the house who want to partake.

The room is 10’x 15′ in a sunny house in Berkeley. There are 7 other people in the house and we live largely communally – shared food and house supplies. You must still pay for food, only rent is free. Reply to this posting and we will set up a time. Contact Dana.

What planet are we on???

HIV and West Nile can be transmitted through breast milk.

In order for one person to provide enough milk for seven people she would have to pump ALL DAY LONG!!!

Please, someone, tell me this is a joke!

  • While I agree that the ad is quite ridiculous I must disagree that breastmilk is only as good as the food the mother eats. This is a common misconception whereas the truth is a mother’s milk no matter what her diet is going to contain basically the same nutrients. The breastmilk will steal the vitamins/minerals from the womans body, thus the reason even anorexic women an breastfeed just fine.

    There are also benefits to people of all ages with certain medical problems, mainly digestive issues. The milk bank I donate to also delivers milk to adults as well as babies.

  • I also agree the post is out there … plus what kind of crazy commune do these ppl have? However is drinking baby cow milk much more insane? Not even baby cows drink it once they grow up. I say this while completely admitting I love cheese, ice cream, and all milk products, I even hoave a cow share. hmmmm could I sell a lactating mom share?? One more thought I do agree that diet is not important to quality of milk that it will just take from the mother, however I’d be interested in a study of a mom producing more milk needed than for her child, my belief has always been that your body creates the milk needed for the child it is nursing. If you are pumping like crazy I think the body might make less nutritious milk as it would figure that the baby is getting what it needs via larger supply. I have heard from a certified LC that milk is age specific. That the milk made for a 1 month old is different than that of a 6month old.
