– 57 percent of ESers just say no to breast milk cheese. But Dan brings up a good question:

Is breast milk cheese vegan? since no animals are kept against free will and all. I see a huge moneymaking idea.

I nursed my son for 18 months, and pumped every once in a while, and OMG pumping is NOT EASY.
