I actually bought some colostrum / breast milk off said "black market". It's the only thing that has calmed my bowels after being given enough antibiotics to cure an elephant of menengitis...

 

Unfortunatley It's much too expensive (I paid $80 per ounce colostrum $2 / ounce breast milk) too continue. Athough I'm sure if I made that my diet for some time starting with the colostrum for a few days first, followed by a week or so of just breast milk, then slowly reintroduce food, blended fruits...Baby food, lol, that I'd make a signifigant recovery.

 

And yes unless you can convince me otherwise (blood in breast milk is a good reason) Yes, it is selfish reasons. They don't want to spend the time, or sorry for being blunt, but yeah, I'm a blunt kind of person, they don't want to "ruin" their tits.



Also, I don't really like the fact that I had to lie to these mothers and send them pictures of my newphew (who very creepily has all MY features...??) because most of these mothers (understandably) are only willing to sell to children in need, sick kids in particular. So I feel as though i'm kind of robbing a child of there health...potentially.

^^ Lol, I can't believe you had to send a baby picture to get the breast milk, but yea it makes sense that they want to make sure it goes to someone in need. 

This thread doesn't belong in the over-the-counter section....it belongs in the UNDER the counter section haha

Kind of appalled at the suggestion that some women dont breastfeed because they are selfish. Some women cannot due to health reasons - not vanity or laziness. My mom was one of them.

It's true...some may do it for selfish reasons, but my mom had to stop breastfeeding me because there was blood in her milk. So we can't really generalize. My mom feels guilty though, because basically I inherited acne from both parents, and possibly a weaker immune system from not being breastfed. My younger sister was breastfed and has less health issues than me. Could be coincidental, but who knows.

I have 2 kids . The older one I did not breastfeed for more than 2 weeks. The nurses had fed him formula via bottle in the hospital due to his weight loss after birth, and he never accepted the breast back.
My second one I did breastfeed up to almost 2 years. He has more health issues despite his history of brestfeeding compared to my forrmula- fed baby, including allergies and neurodermitis. See, I am all into breastfeeding and I really am convinced that mothers milk an especially colostrum are very healthy for babies, but I think that many people really over- interpret mothers milk as an cure- all. For me, breastfeeding is the most natural and healthiest way to feed a baby, and the only reaon that speak against it by todays knowledge are maternal infections like HIV and very few meds or a lactosis intolerance. But it cannot perform miracles.
Btw the very most benefits for the babies immune system derive from the fact, that their gut is still very permeable and many things can be passed into the blood stream. But an adults gut is mature and this cannot happen.

If the only women you know won't breastfeed because it will "ruin their tits," sounds like you primarily socialize with L.A. housewives or strippers tongue.png That is the last thing on most mothers' minds when it comes to their children. If they didn't want to ruin their body, they wouldn't have had kids in the first place...just the birthing process does more irreversible damage to a woman's body than any amount of breastfeeding will do. 

 

So it must be strippers...cause the L.A. housewives could afford a surrogate anyway.

 

Let's stop making stupid generalizations shall we?

This tit thing is ridiculous. Any mother knows that the real changes in the breast tissue occur during the first months of pregnancy. So if having kids will cause you saggy boobs, then it will occur with or without breastfeeding.

After you stop nursing it takes about 6-9 months for your breasts to get back to the shape and structure they would have had without nursing. Just for information to all he young girls on here that don't yet have kids ( to be honest , those two are the only part of my body below my neck that was NOT ruined by the pregnancies LOL, and nursing extremely helps to get back to your pre-pregnancy weight).

I came across this diagram today about the benefits of breastfeeding. I think some of these claims are exaggerated. What do you think?

I was breastfed for nearly a year but when I was born I had baby acne, didn't come back till I was about 12 though... I have noticed that they suggest pregnant and breastfeeding women take probiotics because it seems babies have less allergies when that's done, so clearly it has an effect on the immune system. So it's not just being breast-fed that will help, but what the mom is consuming plays a role as well.

All I know is that my immune system is (or was-hopefully) shot and I have had acne, allergies (skin and food intolerances), tonsillectomy, bells palsy, a hernia, acid reflux, you name it.

 

I was breastfed..

 

The connection between the immune system and all of that is quite farfetched. If that's the case then why don't humans breastfeed their whole lives?

 

 

It's all in your genes and environment, not whether or not you were breastfed as an infant. Let's all get real. I do agree that what we (and our mother's when breastfeeding as Mel Mel points out) consume plays a role on health - and always will - but attributing any disease to not being breastfed is just plain silly.

In reply to Calumma about breast feeding not casuing any damage to your tits, lol. I know personally 3 women (one being my sister) who have an inverted nipple, a nipple that goes "IN" caused directly from breast feeding. Even the doctor says so, it a total possibility (espeacially if you always feed off the same breast) so yes, it can 100% cause degradation to your boobs, but not always. some girls get stretch marks for life, some dont. Just the way it is.

In very rare cases (my friend is an IBCLC lactation assistant , I don't know the correct word in english, and I asked her about this because I never heard about it) a flat nipple can turn into an inverted nipple from pregnancy or breastfeeding. It is most likely the constant appliance of a wrong nursing technique with flat nipples (they need a special way attaching the baby to the breast).

It occurs very seldom here,  because every hospital has midwifes of course, but they also have lactation specialists to help mothers with special circumstances, like they check your breasts and tell you what you should watch out for.

She is doing this for many years now and has seen thousands of breasts, and she has seen a nursing-associated inverted nipple twice in her career.

 

I would not call an inverted nipple a 100% degradation of your breasts btw. There are devices to correct that, you can do a little surgery to correct it or just get a nice piercing that will get the nipple back to normal AND blinking at the same time ;)

Stretch marks in breasts and tummy occur during pregnancy. Every woman knows that moment when you wake up after missing your period and you feel like pamela anderson and eventually cannot see your toes ;)
