Icecreamists, an ice-cream parlour in London's Covent Garden, is selling human breast milk ice-cream for £14 a scoop. The breastmilk is purchased from lactating mothers, and the product (called "Baby Gaga") is intended to raise awareness of breastmilk's deliciousness and encourage more breastfeeding. The milk is pasteurised and flavoured with lemon zest and vanilla pods.

Icecreamists founder Matt O'Connor placed an advert appealing for breast milk donations and believes his new recipe will be a success.

"If it's good enough for our children, it's good enough for the rest of us," he said.

"Some people will hear about it and go yuck - but actually it's pure organic, free-range and totally natural."

Mrs Hiley, who gets £15 for every 10 ounces of milk she donates to the company, said it was a great "recession beater".

"What's the harm in using my assets for a bit of extra cash?" she added.

"I teach women how to get started on breastfeeding their babies. There's very little support for women and every little helps."

Mr O'Connor said health checks for the lactating women were the same used by hospitals to screen blood donors.

The Ziona family in its entirety with all 181 members

An Indian concept prevalent among Hindus is not commonly followed in Northeast India. In this Christian dominated part of the country, people are usually more educated and ‘westernized’. But Ziona Chana from Mizoram thinks ‘differently’.

Chana is the ‘proud’ head of a jumbo sized family of 39 wives, 94 children, 14-daughters-in-laws and 33 grandchildren.

Mr Ziona Chana poses with his 39 wives at their home in Baktawang, Mizoram, India

To accommodate his huge family he has constructed a 100-room, four storey building in Baktwang village. It almost looks like a hotel.

With 100 rooms the Ziona mansion is the biggest concrete structure in the hilly village of Baktawng

Shared bedroom: A look inside the four-storey mansion, Chhuanthar Run - The House of the New Generation

And how much does this jumbo family consume? One time meal – 60 KG potatoes, Over 100 KG rice and 30 chickens!

Chana thanks God for giving him a huge family to look after and considers himself ‘lucky.’

He sleeps in his own double-bedded room while his wives have to adjust in dormitories. The younger wives stay in rooms closer to his room.

And how often does a wife get to sleep with Chana? – A ‘rotation system’ is maintained, he says.

Surprisingly, all the wives get along very well and there is hardly any infighting among them.

Mr Chana is not finished yet. “To expand my family, I am willing to go even to the United States to marry” he proudly says.

Coincidentally, Mr Chana is also head of a sect that allows members to take as many wives as he wants.
