What To Post About On Your Mom Blog About Your Family’s RV Trip

If you run a mom blog, you should know full well that a family RV trip is far too big of an opportunity to pass up to write about.

In fact, you can probably get multiple posts out of a single RV trip, even if it’s only a quick…

The Importance of Dinner Together

Many mothers believe that the single most important activity you can do with your children is to read to them at night, help them with schoolwork to make sure they get good grades, or make sure they are always nearby.  …

Makin' News Monday: Breastmilk Icecream is Dangerous??


It can be creamy, comforting, and even sinful (if eaten by the gallon) but I must admit, the word 'breast' never pops into my mind when thinking of ice cream.

The restaurant Icecreamists, in the UK, is now serving a controversial new concoction made from the best stuff on earth, a mother's milk. The dessert costs about $22 a bowl and is made from donated breast milk, which the women are compensated for. I know your initial reaction might be similar to mine "WTF I don't want to be slurping up some strange woman's booby milk for the price of a Filet Mignon dinner". It seems totally weird and unnatural. But at second glace, is it any stranger than eating cheese or ice cream made from goat's or cow's milk, perhaps this needs some further thought.

Most of us don't think about how we get our cookie dough or mint chocolate chip fix. The fact is, an animal, (usually a cow) was milked for the yummy goodness that gets served up in a dish with sprinkles. Many people tout the benefits of a woman's breast milk for babies over that of formula or cow's milk. So why do we get squeamish when it comes to adults ingesting it? Those same natural antibodies and nutrients could seemingly be transferred to the ice cream, making a healthy version of this frozen treat.

It becomes a question of what we are used to. I would imagine if I was over a girlfriend's house drinking coffee and asked if I wanted milk, she wouldn't whip out her ta-ta's and squirt some in my cup (I would be pretty freaked out if she did).The thought of drinking or eating another person's fluids is kinda gross, however for some reason that's not how I view breast feeding my own baby. That being said, I just feel like breast milk should be exclusively for our young, not for my neighbor with an addiction to sweets.

The local British government is now looking into the safety of the ice cream, as it could pose possible health risks. The Icecreamists only began serving their Baby Gaga ice cream last week, but now officials have confiscated it all from the London shop following two complaints that it did not meet the requirements of Britain's Food Standards Agency. The concerns could be that viruses like hepatitis could be transmitted through the milk.

What do you think of breast milk ice cream?
