Got Milk?

Have you heard the news? A restaurant in London is actually selling breast milk ice cream! Excuse me? Apparently they mix breast milk with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest and then serve it in a cocktail glass. They even named it "Baby Gaga!" I guess they think anything looks appealing in a cocktail glass!

Who in their right mind wants to eat this? Yes, I know the health benefits of breast milk. But I thought that was for infants? Now I breastfed both my kiddos until each one was almost 2, so you don't need to tell me how important it is. I was lucky though, I had a milk supply that could have fed a small city in Turkey! Dang maybe I should have thought of this! Now, I don't want you to think I'm getting on some pedestal trying to promote breastfeeding. Formula has many health benefits also. But we aren't really talking about that now are we?

What I don't understand is why an adult would be interested in this? I hear there are some crazy people out there who have crazy fetish's. I guess this is just the current one!

Not only did they name it "Baby Gaga!" But they have a gal dressed up like a Lady Gaga wannabe who serves it to you! So any takers? I can't imagine there would be many willing participants here in the states. Am I right?

This is Victoria and she is the first gal they found to donate. Apparently she had enough milk to help make the first 50 servings. Awe, I bet her mum is so proud! She helps women who have problems with breastfeeding. She feels that if adults tasted how good breast milk was in ice cream, then they might be more inclined to breastfeed their babies! Really? I gotta say if someone offered me breast milk ice cream right after I gave birth, you can be sure I would have handed that baby right over to the nurses and said, "The kitchen is closed, and I think the bottle will work just fine!"

You see this guy below? This is the creator behind this crazy invention. His name is Matt O'Connor. I'd love to know how much breast milk ice cream he has ingested to look like this. Or is it because he thinks that's the real Lady Gaga?

I think our world gets crazier and crazier but thankfully it makes for good blogging!

RE: GW ..sorry meant to write that maybe your hubby could go in with you for a one off "Hey you, this is my beautiful lady so stop your comments buddy".

What scares me is there are probably quite a few willing participants!

OMG, can you imagine. How does one know that there aren't nasties hanging out in that woman's milk?

The strangest thing that happened to me is having another mum offer to "feed" my son while I went out for a couple of hours. She meant well but I couldn't imagine someone else nursing my son.

But, there was a time when wet nurses were quite common, just not in my lifetime :)

Um...slightly disturbing! No way would I want to try it, but to each is own, I guess?

The Frat Pack + Me said...

No.way! That is whack!

Make sure you try the seamen sour cream & the urinetini too! Barf! And no- not really. I am a proud breast feeder but I think body fluids should be reserved for select individuals. To each their own but for me, I'll stick to Dairy Queen!

Oh no, they didn't....I had plenty for my little guys...but maybe there are needy babies who could use it instead of adults?..yuck...though did you see that one Dr. Phil episode?...still talked about at my house!!

That is pretty gross...but I must confess, giggle, out of curiosity I tasted it..(I'm nursing my son now) and omg I never knew how sweet breast milk is.. Now I know why my little one acts like he's going into withdrawal when he hasn't had any in a couple of hours..It's so sweet..Like....ICE CREAM :) lol
But no..I wouldn't take part in the breast milk ice cream fetish..But if you think about it..Why the hell do we not have a problem with drinking from cows, goats, etc??

Apparently you and I aren't hip enough to "get" this latest trend. :/ "Who are we to judge?" (That's always the NEXT comment) My reply is always the same: Who do I have to be? There is all kind of crazy in the world and all you have to do is spend some time online to discover it. Victoria stole my philosophy... if adults tasted how good Irish whiskey is in Baileys Irish Cream, then they might be more inclined to serve it to their babies! :/ I just have this image of her in my mind sitting topless on a counter with Lady GaGa holding a wafer cone over her nipple. Let's not even think about where they get the nuts for the breast milk ice cream sundaes! :O

Your Friend,

Christina Lucas said...

That first pic is priceless! I just...don't know what to say...on overload with too many responses. This gives me an idea for a theme day on The Blog Entourage-"What the Fu@k Wednesday". Want to be the first guest on there? Seriously.

The White Whimsies said...

Yuck! I would not be one of the taste testers.

Thanks so much for stopping by and following my blog. Have a great weekend!

I saw this the other day and I actually felt like I might vomit! I'm almost done weaning my 1 year old and the idea of expressing milk to give to someone to make ice cream with is so far outside of my comfort zone, it might as well be on Pluto!
And really would you want to be served anything from baby gaga?!
