A young mother from Florida, USA, raised a sizable sum by selling her own breast milk online. The woman, who started the "business" due to financial difficulties, claims to have already pocketed about $20,000 USD (Rs. 14.7 Lakh), according to the Daily Mail.

It all started in August last year, when Julie Dennis, a 32-year-old elementary school teacher, gave birth to a surrogate baby for another family. Six months later, when the boy no longer needed his milk, Dennis decided to start selling it to other couples with surrogacy babies or to women with breastfeeding problems.

She said: "I didn't have a baby to provide milk to after the first six months. I was compensated for that and once I was done I started advertising milk on Facebook where I found another family."

The young woman, who has two children, offers her breast milk for 90 cents an ounce (about $3 for 100 milliliters). In a month she produces about 15,000 ounces of milk (more than 440 liters), which she stores in a freezer and sends to her customers in special frozen containers.

Dennis describes the process of extracting milk and maintaining the equipment is extremely time-consuming: "I wouldn't go into the store and assume I can get free formula, so it baffles me that people expect free breast milk," she said. "Even charging one dollar per ounce I get paid less than minimum wage once you add up all the time spent on it."

"That's not to include replacement of pump parts every six to eight weeks, the cost of bags, the cost of the sterilization units, and four different pumps that I use. It is a lot of work to exclusively pump and it is a labor of love."

The school teacher has already provided milk for two other babies up until their one-year birthday. Of course, she has also received "requests" from certain men who required "proof" that the milk is hers. She said: "They usually request videos or pictures which is absolutely unacceptable. I have always just blocked people once a request like that is made."
