Wealthy Chinese adults have started a trend for drinking breast milk.


Xinxinyu Household Service Company in Shenzen, southern China, has started providing services of wet nurses —or adult nannies — to the sick and wealthy citizens who believe that the breast milk has high nutritional value, the Sun reported.

Lin Jun, manager of the home help agency, said that his clientele features tired company directors and rich couples from Hong Kong.

Lactating mums from impoverished areas are being hired by wealthy families.
