Breast milk

Airport security unsympathetic: forces mum to dump 15 litres of breast milk

A nursing mother was forced to dump nearly four gallons of breast milk after trying to take it through security at an airport.

Security staff allegedly made Jessica Coakley Martinez discard the liquid form of the milk and a two gallon frozen block intended for her eight-month-old son at Heathrow Airport’s terminal five.

The upset mother-of-two from California took to Facebook to rant in a open letter: ‘You humiliated me and made me feel completely defeated as a professional and a mother.’

Breast is best

Sometimes I come across stories that are too bizarre not to draw your attention to

Police in Germany are hunting a busty female who stole from a chemist – by spraying staff with her breast milk.

Police say the lactating bandit squirted the milk at employees to distract them so she could steal cash from the till. Read more »

Remember Josie? Yeah, the one that thought breast feeding was close to incest. She’s back

If you haven’t picked up on the “breastfeeding incest” story, go do that first.  Then, cop a load of today’s installment of this one-woman troughing disaster:

d22e4Last week she sparked fury among mothers after saying breastfeeding was ‘vile and borderline incest’.

And now unemployed NHS scrounger Josie Cunnignham has revealed she will sell her breast milk in her latest cash-grabbing venture.

The unemployed mother-of-three, who made headlines after smugly revealing she had received a £4,800 breast enlargement from the NHS, welcomed a daughter last month after flirting with the idea of selling tickets to her child’s birth.

In a bid to make money, the would-be glamour model has now revealed she will sell her breast milk to new mothers and men with ‘milk fetishes’ instead.

Defending her decision, she [said] ‘My breasts are for my partner, not my child.’

Despite smoking and drinking throughout her pregnancy, she said she wanted to sell milk to new mothers for £2 an ounce – and £10 an ounce to men with ‘milk fetishes’.

‘I should be able to produce around 30ozs a day, that’s up £300 a day or £2100 a week,’ she added.

The only truly organic baby milk is breast milk

A careless mother has fed expired milk to her kid and it is all the fault of the supermarket.

If she’d ben breast-feeding then this issue would never have arisen…and how snobby buying”organic” milk for her kid…yeah the cows haven;t been treated with antibiotics, dosed, milked days earlier,m processed, pasteurised or anything else…but it’s organic…bullshit, the only organic milk is breast milk.

A child was sick for 48 hours after her mother inadvertently fed her baby milk from Tesco that was ten months out of date.

Jerri Lee gave two-month-old daughter Milan a bottle of organic milk she had bought on the way home from work.

But within moments the baby was sick and then remained ill for two days.

Photographer and model Miss Lee checked the bottle as Milan had never been sick before and had been healthy since she was born.

To her horror she found that the milk she had just given her was from a box of six small bottles whose sell-by date had expired ten months earlier.  Read more »

Sucking on the Taxpayers’ Tit, Ctd

Yesterdays post about troughers really fired up the WO army. Seems Jo Goodhew has a few problems on her hands as more surprises keep popping up – something Government’s don’t like.

We’ve seen a state funded hui/stakeholder consultation of health groups pushing for plain packaging and dedicated taxes on infant formula together with bans on NZ exports. Fonterra doesn’t seem to appreciate what’s coming their way, but never let it be said I didn’t warn them.

Up first is the concept of a ‘Wet Nursing’ programme, an idea flowing from the Christchurch earthquake crisis where mum’s were stressed out and struggled to breast feed naturally.

For Kiwi blokes, this means some random lactating woman turns up at your front door, flops out her tits for the young fella to have a suck on, while the missus sits there and watches.

On the other hand if this woman turned up knocking on your door, offering to ‘wet nurse’ your infant, many dads would not only be more than happy to welcome her into their home, but wish they were 2 years old as well. Don’t think the mums would be, though

Another idea latched onto (excuse the pun) by these troughers is that of a ‘human milk banking’ system. Apparently during times of crisis, like Christchurch, a Government funded (of course) milk bank would kick into action, sending litres of chilled breast milk down to the starving infants whose mothers are too stressed to breast feed naturally. These troughers just can’t stand the idea that mums might consider buying infant formula.

So we’d have a Kiwibank styled ‘Milk Bank’. I can just see Simon Power’s Westpac Bank all outraged about the competition. Would this lead to mums popping along to the local branch of the Milk Bank, taking out a deposit?

Meanwhile Fonterra and other infant formula producers can all go and take a bath, as these troughers would rather crawl over broken glass than have infant formula as a ready solution to mums struggling to breast feed.

So who are these troughers… all will be revealed soon enough.

Sucking on the Taxpayers’ Tit

Each day the tip-line runs hot with scurrilous tit-bits of the untoward. A lot comes out of Wellington, home of that pinko Farrar as well as busy-body bureaucrats determined to run a Sir Humphrey view of a clear conscience, plotting ways to push through their own pet projects.

As one of the largest bureaucracies in New Zealand, the Health Ministry is also one of the largest recipients of public money with Vote:Health receiving a solid whack of about $14b each Budget.

Recently the tip line has provided an insight into the nefarious activities of some of the groups literally sucking on the taxpayer’s tit. There’s a lot so I’ll do a series of posts on this.

Early last month breast feeding advocates converged on Wellington for a state funded hui or “stakeholder consultation” at the airport’s convention centre. As this involves some serial troughers I think some sunlight into this area is required.

On the basis that mothers should breast feed their babies if they can, the question is what happens if they can’t. And this is where it gets interesting.

As with most Ministry of Health funded cardigan wearing groupies, it seems the more extreme ideas the better. Pull together a group of breast feeding advocates (activists) and there’s little talk about actually helping mums with breast feeding, instead it’s about big business scaremongering.

The likes of Fonterra should be very worried.

These women’s groups are now calling for plain packaging of infant formula akin to Turia’s recent brain fart that’s bound to see NZ brought before the courts by those evil tobacco companies. They call for an infant formula tax to be placed on the manufacturers. They even suggest that infant formula should only be allowed on prescription from a GP like a heroin addict.

To top it off they even call for New Zealand not to sell infant formula to the world because it was “morally wrong” even though infant formula is sold at 10x the value of milk powder and is a big export earner (conveniently forgetting that export dollars are how mad huis like these can actually be held).

Basically they are trying to equate formula with addictive, carcinogenic poisons and drugs. It is shameful.

And to top it all off this ‘hui’, stakeholder consultation or whatever you want to call it, also had an earth mother ‘stunt feeder’ attend,  sitting there breast feeding her baby throughout the meeting without saying a word. I’m surprised the baby didn’t erupt with reflux having to sit through that bollocks.

This sort of nonsense by troughers literally shows how tits Wellington has become. More concerning is that the Minister responsible for all of this is Associate Minister Jo Goodhew.

I’m sure Ryall, English, Joyce and Key will be just tickled pink that a Minister is overseeing ideas that can damage one of New Zealand’s leading exporters.
