The Japanese are always doing crazy stuff, so it makes sense that they’d be the ones to come up with THIS . . .
–In Japan, you can buy HUMAN BREAST MILK by the carton. No, really.
–The idea is that if you’re a firm believer in breastfeeding, but your baby refuses to latch on, you can just pick up a carton of prepackaged breast milk, courtesy of some other mother’s cans. And the carton even features a photo of a baby suckling on a woman’s breast.
–If you’re wondering why a mother wouldn’t just pump her own breast milk and use that to bottle-feed her newborn . . . well . . . we don’t have an answer for that. We’re just passing along the information we’ve got. That’s all we can do.
