A 26-year-old British mother has raised 3,000 pounds to meet her Christmas expenses by selling her breast milk online, a media report said on Friday.

Rebecca Hudson said that when her daughter was born ten weeks ago she was not producing milk, but later it came in ‘bucket loads,’ the mum-of-four from Manchester said.

Appearing on a TV show on Friday, she said since her youngster was premature, she only required three ounces of milk, meaning Rebecca had an excess of milk, the Daily Mirror reported.

She said: “I didn’t want to pour it away because it takes a lot of work to produce breast milk.”

“So I thought, if I can make money for my children,” Rebecca was quoted by the paper as saying, “I don’t see the harm.”

She then went online and found there were other women in the US already selling their milk.

She has eight regular customers and sells the milk at 12.50 pounds a bottle.

More unusual customers include a bodybuilder who uses the milk for nutrition, food enthusiasts who cook with it, and people who it for sexual thrills, it said.

“What they do with milk is up to them, I’m not going to discriminate,” she said.

Rebecca said her friends and family members were surprised by how much money she had made.
