For Sale: A Mother’s Milk


This is the oddest story that I’ve heard in a long while.

A company, Medolac Laboratories, is looking to pay African-American, lactating mothers in Detroit for their breast milk. Apparently, this would be the pilot for a program that is slated to go nation-wide. First, I think it’s kind of gross for a mother to give their child someone else’s breast milk; although wet nurses were once all the rage for the affluent…

An open letter has emerged penned by BMBFA and signed by numerous women’s advocacy groups. At issue is the fact that information has not been disseminated regarding the plan for said milk. The letter is simply asking for answers to questions and/or a community meeting.

I nursed both of my children, however I still find this “plan” weird. Thoughts?
