It'd be a million times healthier than cow milk, that's for sure.

That is really funny! I think my boyfriend would die if he heard this! lol He is such a baby when it comes to breast milk but as long as it works!

I've tasted mine.  hahaha  I want to find fun recipes for soap or lotion or things of that nature to use milk that is too old to feed my child.  That'd be neat.

EWWW That's not honest LOL. For babies good is meant to be but for cooking ewwww. I saw the past article about breastmilk soap bar and that could be nice but to consume AGAIN EWWW.

It's human milk people.  It's not like you're cooking with urine.

in my opinion its to sweet to use for cooking! So cows milk (that is made for cows babies) is ok but breastmilk is gross? I will never understand that.

That is funny! Some people will drink milk that came from a cow's udder (and we haven't even met the cow!) and was intended for cow babies, but they won't drink milk that was meant for humans that comes from our own body? I've never drank my own milk either, something to think about.
