Over Supply

Posted by parsingtime on October 1, 2010

Do we have any thoughts on a mom with an over supply issue offering up her extra frozen breast milk to other mothers?

This not only happened in play group yesterday but an exchange was also made. Keep in mind we have only known these playgroup ladies for about 2-3 months.

I also made a new friend who lives one block over from me. So yay for a walking buddy.

    I think it’s great in theory but it would have to be a sister or super close friend. Not someone I’d known for a brief time. It raises interesting questions about how our society views breastfeeding and especially sharing breadtmilk as icky. Formula is basically the same thing but from a different species, dehydrated, supplemented, and rehydrated for serving. It’s interesting, sociologically speaking, how these two ways to nourish a baby are viewed so differently.
