One of the issues we tackled on mommalogues this week was extended breastfeeding and how we feel about it. It really got me thinking about our choices as human beings. What if it was just normal to sell breast milk at the supermarket? I mean it was created for us to drink right? I’ve heard women talk about how animal milk for human consumption was never what it was intended for. So why NOT continue drinking breast milk forever. It’s the healthiest, most natural option we have!
And what if breast milk was flavored differently depending on your ethnicity. Right now the milk aisle has a large variety of flavors and percentages of fat, but I’d like to send Pat to the supermarket for a quart of Chinese milk to go with the general tsaos chicken I’ve got cooking. Perhaps Italian flavored breast milk for my pot of homemade spaghetti and french bread. We could get as particular about our palate for breast milk as we are for wine. Take our time with each sip, swirl it, swish it, judge it.
