Serious question: İs it healthy to drink breast milk? If you can't produce it, can you drink someone else's?
Interesting.. İm curious
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!
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)
Idk if I could drink my own lol- just wondering if anyone has and if it's beneficial. Lololol - I heard the taste was nasty
denise do you know all the cows that produce the milk you drink?
well we drink cows and goats milk witch is meant for cows a goats. Human milk is for humans. İt seems more normal to me to drink human milk.
I completely agree
We eat cows and goats too though (well.. Some) I hope we dont eat humans too lol.
Jean Davidson..... Not even the same concept.
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.
I believe because it's basically a whole immune system..
And it's really pure and just really good..
You cannot drink others breast milk. You'll grow an extra boob.
Lol good one
Is that a joke, tiffany? Lol
One extra boob is probably better than my skittle tits on their own lol
Skittle tits!!! Lol!!
I want more boob!!
Mother's donate milk to other babies. So I don't see why not.
Wet nursing is definitely a thing
That's what wet nurses are for
Didn't I hear before that some bodybuilders drink it?
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.
What's nut milk? Jess Mcclellan
Almond, cashew, etc. Milk
I've made hemp, coconut, cashew, Quinoa and sesame seeds milk.. We love cashew milk. I'm trying hazelnut, almond and a few others next week
I'd be willing to try all of those. I have no idea where I'd get a cheesecloth though. Where do you get yours?
Milk made from nuts
How do you do that? I've literally never heard of that.
I thought they only made almond. I never thought you could make your own. I know I sound like a cave woman lol
Cashew milk, hemp milk, even hazelnut milk..
I found a recipe to make it on Pinterest!
Someone else's? YES they use Breast milk for cancer patients
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'm laughing so hard at that comment!!! Hahahahaha
What's it taste like?
Human milk taste like what ya eat. Every time it can taste completely different. It naturally changes to fit babies needs
My SO says anytime he's gotten a taste it tastes like cereal milk. But yet he says it's "nasty"... Lol idk
It's really sweet
Mine tasted like frosted flakes for months lol
ive tasted my own lol its sweet. İt tastes like the milk after you eat like, honey nut cheerios or probably frosted flakes or rice krispies with sugar. İ thought it tasted similar to rice milk. Light and sweet haha.
I never was able to lactate so.. I'm sure every woman has tried their own lol
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.
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.
My fiancées friend LOVES it (they are firefighters) he swears it has great health benefits and what not.
I drank my own milk lol I thought it tasted awesome haha
Like fully drank or just tried it lol
I tried it lol I didn't drink it regularly hahaha
I used it for tons of stuff
I sneak it in my five year olds smoothies when he isn't feeling well. Helps SO much!
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.
It tastes sweet.
I wouldn't say I drank mine but I tried it. Was sweet.
I am getting a cold and debating chugging some of my breastmilk. I know people who swear by it. I have tasted it but never drank it.
Do it! My husband drinks mine when he's getting sick.
Donna Marie Johnson, you can sell your extra milk! We know you will have more than enough!
Yes, I'm sure it's healthier than drinking milk of another species.
When drinking it, is it warm or refrigerated?
Yes I would think.
If the producer it healthy and you're ok with it sure. I totally get why people use it when they are sick.
They put breast milk in ice cream.
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....
