Clueless‘ actress Alicia Silverstone has certainly got some more controversial ideas when it comes to parenthood, and only last year was ridiculed by the public when she was videoed chewing food, then taking it out of her mouth and placing it into her child’s. So in her latest move, she’s established a new service to help Mums in need of breast milk- the ‘Kind Mama Milk Share.’

The service’s aim is to help mothers who cannot produce enough milk on their own, according to the statement posted on her website ‘The Kind Life‘ last week. The mother of 2-year-old boy Bear Blu wrote: “A couple weeks ago, another mama I know gave birth to a son. She e-mailed to let me know how things were going, and she was beside herself. She’d tried to do everything so that this baby would have the healthiest, happiest start in life–she nourished herself during pregnancy with clean, kind foods; had a beautiful home birth; and planned to breastfeed from now until her son could say, “No thanks.”  But because of a breast reduction surgery, she found she wouldn’t be able to make enough milk for him, no matter how much precious boobie time they spent together. She tried reaching out in her community for donor milk, but it was almost impossible to figure out what kind of lifestyle choices the donors had made. And after all that hard work keeping herself vibrant and healthy, she felt she had a right to demand better for her baby.”

“A lot of women unfortunately have a similar struggle, and there’s no reason why they shouldn’t be able to give their babies the most amazing start in life with clean, mean, glorious breast milk. And because we are a community of beautiful souls who recognize the importance of food as health, I say we help support those mamas and babies who need a hand during one of the most important times in their lives. It’s why I’m starting the ‘Kind Mama Milk Share‘, a way for moms to connect with other moms in their area. If you have milk to share–post it! If you are in need of milk–post it! Think of all the babies we can help raise together!”
