Breastmilk for sale!...Stay-at-home mum turns excess breastmilk to cash by selling online to body builders

Lisa Carbonneau, a stay-at-home mother of three from Michigan, is selling her breast milk for about a dollar per ounce on Craigslist or to the highest bidder.
Her clientele includes mothers who cannot breastfeed and body builders.
Carbonneau who currently works on her own,  has had offers from  people looking to employ her.
“I actually got one text it says ‘Do you have fresh milk available? I’ve been paying $4 per ounce to single moms to help out, $3 otherwise, if interested,’” she told the news station.
While the trend among body builders is on the uptick, not all in the medical community are sold.
“Breast milk probably isn’t your best mode of action here,” Dr. Shaun Jayaker of St. John Providence Hospital told “Breast milk has less protein than cow milk you can buy at the store.”
.“I have a 20-pound 5-month-old who is growing like a weed,” she told the news station. “If the nutritional value is good enough to sustain his life, why not add a few extra vitamins to your diet.”
