Neil Patrick Harris - Harris Solves Daughter's Digestive Problems With Fresh Breastmilk

Comedian NEIL PATRICK HARRIS and his partner DAVID BURTKA have to have fresh breastmilk shipped to their Los Angeles home every week because their newborn daughter struggles to digest baby formula.
The couple welcomed twins Harper Grace and Gideon Scott via surrogate in October (10), but the star admits feeding time for their baby girl has been far from smooth and they've had to resort to a special milk bank to give the tot the nutrition she needs.
Harris says, "Harper was very fussy... she was always in a state of angst. So we switched formulas a couple of times and now we're having to have breastmilk brought in.
"You have to have breastmilk shipped in. I think it's a racket (farce). Seriously, if someone is in Santa Monica - down the street and wants to provide milk - it has to go on a plane to San Jose and get fertilised and pasteurised and boiled and whatever happens in little bottles."
And the special feeding requirement has cost the How I Met Your Mother star dear: "They charge a fortune! It cost more for breastmilk than sushi! I like sushi and it's not inexpensive, but you at least figure, alright, they have to go that morning and get the fish and there's a lot of labour involved... you know, you stick a thing on her hee-haw (nipple) and it just sucks out some milk and they're charging a fortune!"

Harris' comments demean women (thing on a nipple.)Who does he think he is?Using a surrogate to produce his progeny and then not having the biology to feed that child, all the while demeaning those who can, are indications of shallowness and plain misogyny.This is a shallow, narcissistic, woman hating man.If he wanted to raise a child, there are many who need a home who can be adopted.
