    Often a new mom can't provide enough and has to purchase it. There are a limited number of nursing mothers able or willing to pump and process it for shipping to hospitals.

    I am a former La leche leader and we dealt with these situations occasionally.

    The food control authority in Switzerland was initially confused by the apparent loophole in local legislation regulating the use of human milk and it was not clear whether Mr Locher could actually be banned from serving his specialities.
    "Humans as producers of milk are simply not envisaged in the legislation.

    "They are not on the list of approved species such as cows and sheep, but they are also not on the list of the banned species such as apes and primates," Rolf Etter of the Zurich food control laboratory said.
    Yeah, but they will change the law, do a health inspection, and then this place will be so busted....
    Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!
