breastmilk brownies, anyone?
ok time for another "gross!" breastfeeding post (for those of you who have been with me from the beginning of my journey-when Yousuf was a baby and I wrote this post on weaning him under occupation, you'll catch my drift).
The other day Yousuf wanted to bake some brownies with me for Yassine's co-workers at the hospital. Turns out we were out of butter "oh well, some other day" I said.
"Well how do you make butter?" the ever inquisitive Yousuf asked.
I gave him a brief, non-technical explanation.
"Tayib, can't you just take your milk and make butter with it?" he responded, in all seriousness.
After a few moments of hysterical laughing, I explain that though its theoretically possible, I doubt that the other doctors want to eat breastmilk brownies. :)
But curiosity got the best of me and I did some research. Not breastmilk butter-but turns out some people have made (a rather runny) yoghurt from their expressed breastmilk. The name for this au natural concoction: Boobie-yo.
Ok-how many people have I scared off now?
