Interesting.. İm curious

Denise Mcconnell

Everyone seems to swear by it, so if the kids can drink and use it, we should be able to as well? I'm just wondering if anyone has. I'm curious too!

Drea Haley

Dont think id be brave enough to. Especially if i didnt know who was producing it.

I pondered that

My SO drank mine a few times when we were out of milk and had some in the fridge. He swears it better than any other milk. Lol. I couldn't even drink my own so I highly doubt I could drink a strangers... (I don't drink animal milk either though)

Humans are different from animals is my point. cierra

I agree. Although I have never done it it should be more natural than cow or goar milk.

Yes it's healthy. Particularly for people with cancer/HIV/aids/anything else that messes with the immune system.

Do you know why and how it is beneficial? Wondering if it helps any autoimmune issue, like arthritis, lupus and etc.

Samantha Oconnell 3 years

I believe because it's basically a whole immune system..

Mother's donate milk to other babies. So I don't see why not.

Didn't I hear before that some bodybuilders drink it?

Elle Andrews

It's a normal thing. It is safe as long as you trust the body it's coming from. I have a few friends that give their kids donor milk.
Children of all ages.
My friend puts it in her older kids breakfast smooth.
She drinks it while sick to feel better.
I make our own nut milk, we aren't big milk drinkers.

My husband used to put my breast milk in his coffee every morning lol
I have drink my own but not someone else's and my son have to many food allergies to trust just any milk. I make almost everything he consumes at home

I literally just pictured like you in your pjs feeding your baby and your husband walking in with his coffee cup saying good morning honey and give him a little squeeze to get some milk lol like it's no big deal

I have nursed all 7 of mine, never tried it, so no, not every woman. I'd bet most haven't actually.

I haven't tasted mine. I'm grossed out at the idea. I'm a very squeamish person though.

Becky Pickens 3 years

I've never tasted mine, but I did get clogged so bad that the baby wasn't able to get anything anymore so my hubby volunteered to help since I was in a lot of pain and refused to pump anymore. He said it was really sweet tasting. My older sister says she remembers how my mom's milk tasted, she said it tasted like BO? She said she was 5 and she asked my mom for some when she saw our brother eating (he was an infant at the time) I think it just depends on the person and how their diet is?

Honestly, I've eaten my own placenta but didn't try my own milk lol

I was offered money for mine by a body builder, i declined because its for my son. But yes, some swear by it. It has several immune system boosters so i would imagine anyone with a weakened immune system would benefit.

You can buy it online from people. It's pretty wild but I think it tastes good and is very good for you! Look up breast milk ice cream.

Breast milk has been proven to cute certain cancers. They're actually trying to make a pill for cancer patients where the main ingredient is only found in breastmilk.

Stephanie Dillard

You can use someone's breastmilk and plz don't be offended rather let that person get tested because whatever mom has ;eat or drink comes directly through her milk....
