Breast Milk Brownies? Yes or No?
Facebook is full of the weird and the wonderful. On the weird side is a post from a mom looking for opinions on her unconventional brownie recipe.
The Facebook page Sanctimommy shared a screenshot of a post from a mom with a plea for advise.
The mother explained how she used her own breast milk in brownies she made for her child to sell at a bake sale.
To no surprise some of the other mothers were less than pleased when they discovered the secret ingredient in this mom's brownies.
Now let's start with, is this post real?
Well, I guess for now we will have to just believe Sanctimommy didn't create the post to cause a lengthy argument in the comments section. This is Facebook, so you never know.
The comment section is full of support, anger, sarcasm, curiosity, and jokes.
One comment reads: "Personally, I ran out of oil and decided to use vaccines because, let's be honest, some of those kids could use a little more herd immunity. What? Is that bad?"
Another wrote: "Honestly this is actually a damn near criminal offense! Breast milk, like blood or semen, can carry diseases, which is why legit donation services screen the milk before passing it along to moms and their babies. Secretly feeding children that aren't yours baked goods with your bodily fluids in them in gross..."
One user pointed out a great point of the post: "I'm laughing so hard I can hardly breathe. It's not even the breastmilk. It's the fact that THREE TIMES she has insisted on bringing up this discussion all over again when other people have politely tried to shut her the hell up for her own good. Because SHE NEEDS YOU TO KNOW THAT IT'S OKAY that she put breastmilk in the public brownies. It's EXTREMELY important to her."
This is how I imagine her thought process went.
Oh let me make brownies for the bake sale! Darn, no milk. I could get in the car, drive to the store and buy some. Who has time for that? I know, let me go grab the breast pump and use what I already have. That's just being resourceful right? Nothing wrong with it. It is natural after all...
Who knew that not only do you have to worry about your kids' nut allergies at a bake sale, but now you have to worry about breast milk.
