I am donating milk and was wondering if someone could sue you if their kid gets sick. I do not do drugs or even drink but now my dh is freaking out for NO reason. So does anyone know if they can sue you if their kid gets sick and you have them BM?

Can a baby get an std thru breastmilk? I didn't know that.

It's a body fluid so yes that's why HIV positive moms are discouraged from breast feeding. But that's why you sterilize it to get rid of germs I think it's called scalding it but I may be wrong on that. I just know it involves boiling the milk when it's donated.

you could have them sign rel;ease forms that releases you from all legal actions IF something should happen. also if they try to say you are deseased or your milk is there are facilities that will test your milk and you and you will have the forms in case they do try to pull an action because release forms only cover so many things.

Anyone could sue anyone for anything. Whether they win or not is another story. It's certainly possible they could.

Yet another reason to donate through an HMBANA milk bank!

I donate to milk bank... For this reason. Not to private person... There is nothing protecting you... Except someone's verbal word..
