Brownies VS Breast Milk!

It is almost bedtime when little Johnny decides to tell us that he has to have brownies for school tomorrow. You realize you are out of milk. WHAT TO DO? Oh, wait, you see the baby bottles and say, THANK GOODNESS. It is all ok. You have breast milk. Whew!

Wait… breast milk? 

One mom found herself in this situation recently and made brownies with breastmilk to send to her son’s classroom. We all know that breast milk is the best alternative for babies. But, when the child that you are feeding is not your own, is this appropriate?

The mom in question thinks that her brownie saving use of breast milk is perfectly acceptable. She took to Facebook in the following post:

“… I made brownies for my school bake sale that had breast milk in them. I didn’t have time to run to the store and didn’t think it was a big deal (some of those kids could use the nutrition let’s be honest).One of the other moms found out and are blowing it way out of proportion”

Waiting on the kudos to come pouring in-  she was surprised at the backlash she received. Moms everywhere berated her for her UTTERLY ridiculous mistake.

“… “blowing it out of proportion”. They have no clue if breast milk is free of communicable diseases or illegal substances. How are the other parents supposed to know whether or not her breast milk is even safe? …”

One woman shared a funny, with a good point…

“…I made lemonade with my urine because I ran out of water and didn’t feel like going to the store to get more. I only drink Perrier so they were getting, like, the best urine ever. I don’t know why everyone was so mad about it.”

Criminal?

“Honestly this is actually a … criminal offense! Breast milk, like blood or semen, can carry diseases which are why legit donation services screen the milk before passing it along to moms and their babies. Secretly feeding children that aren’t yours baked goods with your bodily fluids in them is gross, shady and borderline psychotic.”

The initial question is HOW did anyone even find out in the first place? It also makes the rest of us further question the sanctity of homemade goods coming into the bake sale. Now we are not only worried about poisons, we have to worry if someone laced the snickerdoodles with bodily fluids? Like we don’t have enough to worry about!
