Crazy? Not entirely. Breastmilk does sell well in some cases.
Depending on where you are, you'd need to check into the legalities of doing so. Some states prohibit selling bodily fluids except to certified institutions. (Like bloodbanks.)
It might be a kinder gesture to donate the extra milk. There are many babies who truly would benefit from breastmilk that was generously given! These could be premature infants, babies whose moms suffered trauma during birth, etc.
I'd give it a bit more thought and try to decide if I really needed the money for the extra milk, or if the fuzzy feeling I'd get donating would be worth more to me in the long run. But that's me personally. If you decide to sell, just make sure you are selling good milk that has been properly stored, and that you remain within the law!
Quoting lovebeingmrs:I have been a wet nurse before, but I did it for a family member who couldn't breast feed.
I would look into donating if you have an overstock.

Long as you have enough for your own babies first, I don't see a problem with it. I wish I would have known, I would have purchased so I could work and still have my babies healthy. If I did not work, I would have sold mine too. Good Idea! Do it girl!
NO not crazy at all, many dont want to strugle with breastfeeding and will find that easy.
