Ok, I really didn't laugh at this woman tonight, but I was so tempted.<br><br>
DD is 4.5 months old. I dropped her off for a few hours this evening at our church nursery. I nursed her before I dropped her off, but I took a bottle of BM just in case she got hungry before I returned.<br><br>
The lady, whom I must say I dearly love as she rocks my DD the entire time I'm gone, says 'Oh, does her bottle need to be warmed?' I say 'No, I just pumped it before I came, so it'll be fine.'<br><br>
I swear her mouth dropped several inches as she says 'Oh, this is YOUR milk in here?' as she's holding it cautiously to the side as if it might explode on her or something.<br><br>
People can be so weird. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I remember the first time my mother had seen my EBM. (She never breastfed...so itś all new to her) She said ¨it looks like regular milk¨ (cows milk? formula?...) and just looked at it like...wow. I´m not sure what she expected it to look like. She wasnt grossed out or anything, just kind of in awe.

I was like that when I first saw my own milk. I told my husband, "it looks like real milk!" to which he replied "it IS real milk."<br><br>
Why do we think of cow's milk as "real" milk, anyway?

How is human milk weird but cow milk isn't? I would have totally laughed at her. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:

Funny!<br><br>
I sometimes bring baked goods to share with my coworkers (ER nurses). Then when my youngest was born and I was pumping they started making cracks about "Did you make those cookies with breastmilk?" One, few cookies contain milk. Two, like I'd waste my precious milk on them. Three, they don't get any baked goods any more! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
A couple of the guy nurses did want to see my pumped milk. They were genuinely fascinated with it and were surprised that it looked like milk. I have no idea why.

Yep I have seen that look over and over again! It is hilarious to see the different reactions, from shock and awe, to disgust, to cool<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">.<br><br>
My mom was asking me the other day if I could use my BM to cook with/over cereal since I am on a Total Elimination Diet and I am getting quite sick of Rice milk. She was totally serious! I just told her that sadly I really don't have enough extra for me to be consuming it also <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao">

thats funny! i remember when i was younger and worked in the infants room at a school - one of the mamas brought in her 8 week old and a slew of bottles and asked me if i minded giving the baby the bottles because it had her breastmilk in it. i asked her what insane people she had been dealing with that would give her a problem with feeding her baby their mamas own breastmilk!

I remember thinking for a second that it was crazy to see my own milk. DH and I both looked at it and were like "wow."

I've had two co-workers want to see the milk.... I showed it to them... I thought it was funny.
