Alice Chiti is said to have three freezers filled with her own breast milk, which she started selling after it turned out that listing a homemade product online is easier than donating it to a local dairy bank.
Children’s mixture deficit in United States has seen reports of recalls and supply chain problems that prevent mothers from feeding their children.
Chiti has taken on the task of covering part of the demand for supply by supplying its own breast milk and stating that it has “running out of space” in how much stock it has left to sell.
Chiti said, “I think I don’t have enough space, so I could help someone else. I considered that.
“I worked with the band on this, but my daughter had an SMA, and we were at the primaries, so it was hard to go take blood tests and do everything else, and that’s the only thing that kept me from doing that part.”
It was necessary to jump over the cracks so that Chiti could donate her milk to the local dairy bank, which meant that her mother had to sell off the surplus.
Chiti says she hoped to sell her breast milk for $ 1 an ounce, or 80 retirees for 28 grams of milk, but is willing to negotiate with some moms because she understands what they are going through.
She said: “It made me nervous, just because my daughter was very, very suffering from colic.
“And I know a lot of moms need special formulas for babies with upset stomachs, and I know how hard it is when they’re upset. There’s nothing you can do about that stomach pain.”
Buying and selling breast milk online is legal but not regulated, and when Chiti began to receive negative reviews about its decision to sell, it stopped. Fox 13 reports.
