I've just come across an ad in my local FB buy and sell for a 'human milk machine'.  The person is selling because the person she bought it for couldnt 'human feed'.

I've never heard breast feeding being referred to as human feeding before.  Is it a thing?

Possibly a filter was preventing them from using the word breast?

Facebook is such a sensitive little flower.

Yes, saw that a few months ago, that a woman was stopped from selling a breast pump, due to the word breast.


It's actually a cute title:  human milking machine.

I've been trying to sell my double pump for ages, keeps getting rejected. How dare I use the word breast!

They are just trying to work around Facebook from blocking the sales post. The words Breast, pump and many of the breast pump brands get flagged by Facebook as medical device that contrivines there policy.

They categorise it as a medical device?


I think vets would be amused to hear cow milking machines categorised as medical devices.

FB has some strange rules for sale posts.  I tried selling a telescope and FB blocked my ad because they said it looked like a weapon.

When I bought my pump, there was a problem with the delivery. Auspost stuck it on the wrong truck so even though I was given notification of it's arrival and stayed home all day, nothing showed up. They even had the nerve to put that they tried and no one was home.

In my bid to find it, I had to contact the company I bought it from as only they could call and ask what happened. The guy told them it was a medical device that a breastfeeding mother with mastitis desperately needed and they better get their sh*t together and deliver the d@mn thing.

They sent a special courier out with it.

So yeah, technically it is a medical device. Probably because it deals with bodily fluids.

That was a long way to say that but the guy was so bad@ss in getting me that pump, I had to share.

What did she get for it? I have one in my charity bag right now. More like 30 cm tall though, so probably not worth as much as a giant one.

I feel like a charity won’t be able to sell a stuffed toy that big? I’m happy to give it away if it doesn’t sell.




There was a giraffe the size of my 7yo at Savers the other day. Some grandparent will buy it for a DIL who will hate it...

Lol. Facebook filter. You can't mention breast milk or pumps on buy and sell posts. So you have to be creative to get around it.

Manufacturer information would state that a personal breast pump is personal, not to be shared. Personal pumps aren't designed for multi people use.

It could be a wording issue as some second hand pumps could be multi use.

I know at times hospitals refer to expressed human milk rather than expressed breast milk. I prefer expressed breast milk myself.

Yes, we've just spent 2 months in a NICU.

PDHM = Pasturised Donor Human Milk. That is the proper name.

I think it's a long leap from PDHM to human feeding for bfing.
Bottle feeding is also human feeding.
Bfing can be referred to as chest feeding. I have used that term for those who tell me that this is their preference.
