Women's breast milk is becoming big business, selling on the internet for up to $10 an ounce. As more mothers search for it, safety is being called into question.
Mothers know best. And for Lauren Freuhan, that means feeding her baby boy breast milk.
"I receive milk from about 10 moms he thrives and grows he is quite strong," she said.
But the milk is not her own. Freuhan can't pump enough, so she asks other moms for donations.
"Lately, some of us have been traveling as far as the east coast of Florida or Tampa to obtain the milk," she explained.
Freuhan says she finds the moms online and will then get a hold of them through phone or email.
"I ask what meds they take if condition diet, if they drink," she said.
And she asks for blood work. After all, she says, she's getting fresh non-processed milk.
But it's this growing trend of buying, selling or donating that's becoming controversial.
"We certainly recommend going through a certified health bank and not work together with another person," said Betsey Lunsford, with the Lee County health Department.
Lunsford says bad milk can contain bacteria - or diseases like HIV and hepatitis C.
Health professionals worry some nursing moms will sell their breast milk for the profit - even if they know it could be unsafe for a child.
"It becomes more dangerous because people try to make it more equitable for themselves and don't take mom and baby into account," Lunsford said.
In Freuhan's home, she says they only use milk from donors - and not just because it saves her hundreds of dollars a month.
She says when donating, there's no ulterior motive.
"It is gold - so many antibodies in breast milk. It's a shame if it gets wasted," she said.
