A mother has made soap from her own breast milk - and her whole family are now using it.

Ashley White has built up a stockpile of the soap since she gave birth to daughter Mia in April, and she now uses it to wash alongside her family - husband Paul, 10-year-old Mylee and Mia.

The 31-year-old mother said: ''It was a struggle at first as Mia wouldn't latch and my milk wasn't coming in, but when it did I wanted to look into other ways of using my milk.

''My milk coming in was a huge relief so I expressed quite a bit and built up a stash in the freezer. I didn't want my milk going to waste as it felt like a real achievement.''

White added that she is considering cashing in on her unique product.

She said: ''I am thinking about selling the soap at the same price as other handmade soaps are selling for, which is about £3 to £4 a bar.''
