  • According to this site it costs $2.25 per oz, requires a prescription and will cost an extra $.25 per oz to ship it.

  • not bashing, but how can you feel comfortable feeding your child breast milk from someone else? it makes me naseous to think about it. It's another woman's bodily fluid. I just can't grasp the idea...

  • If parents can't yell nor can't spank then how can parents control their children?

    You feed your family with milk from a cow, you eat the insides of animals. That makes me nauseous.

  • I will NOT be purchasing breast milk. I am a surrogate & after I deliver the family is asking that I pump & want to compensate me for my efforts bc it is NOT something I had planned to. When I deliver I will have a Toddler running around & pumping wasnt really on the agenda. I however so think its beneficial & would rather this baby get MY breastmilk than a strangers. If I did NOT pump the family would purchase from a bank- so they are looking to compensate based on BANK fee's.

  • Kudos to you for being willing to do all of that! I am zero help for your question, but wanted to applaud you for what you're doing for another family, and for the baby once it's born!

  • thats amazing, i think it goes beyond the call of duty for a surrogate. however that sounds really expensive to buy from a bank. wow!
