Mum bathes baby in breast milk

Source: Ananova

A Chinese new mother is producing so much breast milk that she baths her baby in the excess each day.


Mrs Luo, of Chongqing, says she is producing two litres of milk more than she needs to feed her six-week-old daughter Shan Shan.

Mother, husband and her mother-in-law had all been drinking the extra milk but she says they still have plenty left over.

Ewww not cool. How does breast milk taste anyways?

Luo's mother-in-law said they were all beginning to feel like they were drinking too much milk: "Then I suggested why not give the baby a breast milk bath, and they took my advice," she said.

Luo said the milk bath makes her Shan Shan's skin really smooth and white, reports the Chingqing Times.

Really? I'd never heard of such a thing. I wonder if there's scientific proof anywhere.

But she is looking for someone to donate her extra breast milk to as she feels that bathing her baby in breast milk is too much of an indulgence.

Yes I think she should call a hospital or orphanage and donate the milk.

To answer your question: I've heard that breast milk tastes very, very sweet.

Have yet to try it, though.
