This mum admits to using breastmilk in the brownies as she didn’t have time to get to the shop…
An anonymous mum has taken to Facebook to share her disbelief after coming under fire for selling breastmilk brownies at the school bake sale. After other mums found out about the unconventional ingredient, the mum says she was hit with a wave of criticism despite her insistence that it made absolutely no difference.
The mum said she wasn’t sure how to handle the situation.
“I need some advice,” she wrote. “I made brownies for my school bake sale that had breastmilk 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 mums found out and is blowing it way out of proportion. Idk what to do!”
While the mums call for advice seemed to fall on deaf ears, that didn’t stop thousands of comments flooding in within half an hour…
Just Not Ok
Responses to the post were divided, with most disgusted by the mum’s lack of consideration.
“Honestly this is actually near a criminal offence!” wrote one shocked commenter. “Secretly feeding children that aren’t yours baked goods with your bodily fluids in them is gross, shady and borderline psychotic.”
“So, I know we are all mammals…etc, but the smell of breastmilk seriously makes me yacky. The thought of breastmilk brownies made me throw up in my mouth a little,” said another.
Some of the comments were hilarious:
“Ummmm those other moms should THANK you. Don’t they know breast milk cures everything from cancer to anal warts, psoriasis, lumbago, sweat of limbs and stupidity. So, like, all the things that coconut oil and essential oils don’t cure. Pffffft. Ungrateful bitches,” said on comment.
“Oh my gosh, YES, the only way I can get my kids to drink breast milk is by slipping it into baked goods, breakfast cereal, etc. They’re in their 20s, so they’re not as receptive to latching on anymore, but I’ll be damned if I’m going to deprive them of Mommy’s precious nutrients,” said another tongue-in-cheek comment.
It seems parents were right to be concerned, with the US Food and Drug administration saying that unscreened breastmilk can pose serious health risks, including exposure to infectious diseases.
We think that whatever you choose to do when it comes to feeding your own kids is one thing, but using breastmilk in a bake sale contribution is completely unacceptable. Who knows what else is hiding inside those cookies and cakes!?
Do you think this mum was wrong to use breastmilk in her brownies? Let us know in the comments!
