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.

Advice Please

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, lets 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 over 200 comments flooding in within half an hour…

Just Not Ok

Responses to the post were divided, with most disgusted by the mums 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.” 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!

  • Just when you think you’ve heard it all. Oh dear.


  • To me it’s okay to do this but only if it is for your own children or family provided they know before they eat any. As for using it in a product for sale, it is definitely wrong.


  • Ewwww. I don’t want to know or think I ate something with breastmilk. I think that is disgusting. How would she have felt if put in that situation? Not okay.


  • Not good. Breast milk is healthy for babies but that also depends on how healthy the mother is- whether she drinks or smokes, etc. that and the fact that it’s just gross.


  • How disgusting. I certainly wouldn’t want myself or any of my kids eating food made with someone’s breastmilk. I think it’s revolting. I breast fed my kids but no way would I give it to anyone else, in anything.


  • That is disgusting. That is why you shouldn’t be baking it own goods at bake sales anymore… not unless you include a full ingredient list.


  • Ewww is all I can say


  • Gross gross gross! What was she thinking!


  • This story made my stomach turn but I also found it absolutely hilarious. If this is real, and I’m having a hard time believing that it is. This women sounds like a absolute nutter????????


  • Absolutely disgusting why she thought that it was ok I will never know. Diseases can be spread by breast milk as it’s a bodily fluid


  • I would have been horrified! If you chose to consume your own breastmilk or give it to your children thats one thing. But putting it in brownies to sell to others! No way!!!!


  • Um………..No ! This is way too weird.

    • Also… my brownie recipes don’t have milk in them.


  • No I don’t think this was the right thing to do. Breast milk is personal and not for comsumption by a bundle of school kids.


  • It is a little strange, to force you’re breast milk unknowingly onto others. You wouldn’t offer it to your visitors when they pop in for coffee.. its a family choice and something personal.


  • Um just no. My question is if she didn’t tell anyone, no-one would know – so she clearly told someone with the purpose of having something controversial going on.
