Craigslist Brings Sperm Donor Model To Lactation Industry

Spotted on the Birmingham, AL Craigslist:

young mom needed for special job
need lactater. want to make $100 on a regular basis? I want your milk. no other contact necessary. clean discreet environment, or I will come to your location.
A hundred bucks a throw? Not bad, but if you're lactating, you can't spend it on beer.

Wow, not bad $100 for milk, especially moms who can produce. Some of my friends have over-supply of milk. They are qualified for the job.

On the other hand, to me, this is a new social trend...

Hmmm... I'd have to check the wife on this one, but I thought a woman's body didn't get into "lactation mode" until she was pregnant or had delivered... am I wrong? I'd imagine this varies.

When my wife had any of our three kids and overproduced, we just froze the extras and pretty soon had used them up. I couldn't imagine selling my wife's breast milk when we have a baby that could use it, but then again I believe we are assuming this isn't the case...

I'd be a little concerned with the milk provider's background - did y'all hear about the baby that died because the mother was given codeine that unfortunately due to a specific medical condition, her body broke down into morphine which was passed through the milk to the baby. Articles abound, but here's just one:

Lactating women can drink alcohol, it's just that we're supposed to wait until the alcohol is out of our system before we feed the baby.

Of course, given that I'm pretty sure this guy wants both the milk and the cow (as it were), that $100 wouldn't begin to cover the amount of beer I'd need before, during, and after the transaction.

[i don't get the feeling that this milk is for a baby. which suddenly makes me wonder if this ad is from some bev dev guy at Bartles & Jaymes. -ed.]

Am I the only one giggling at the word "lactater"?

The amount of alcohol that gets into your breastmilk is the same amount that gets into your blood. So even if your blood alcohol level is 0.08 (the legal limit in most states), your baby would have to drink FIVE 12-ounce servings to equal the alcohol content of one O'Douls or Sharps.

So drink up, ladies! It's not going to affect your baby, and you'll be much, much happier with a pleasant little buzz.
