Question as above. Would you allow your significant other to taste/drink your breast milk? Why or why not?
Edited for clarification:
I am not asking whether or not you'd hand your SO a glass of your breastmilk to drink or pour over their cheerios. The situation I am asking about would likely be more sexual as opposed to "I'm thirsty, let me latch on."
no b/c i feel like it's creepy, but i can't really explain why
Ew. I've never heard of that before.
I wouldn't let him suckle, ew, but if he was curious about the taste, sure, no problem.
If he really wanted to taste it out of curiosity, I wouldn't mind. Although I wouldn't let him "drink" it because it seems odd to me.
I suppose I'll chime in here. I've no problem with almost-husband tasting my potential future breastmilk. We've discussed it before and he says it might bring a whole new level of intimacy into our relationship. If he wanted to suckle, I'd be cool with it, or if he wanted to taste from a bottle or whatnot, that's cool too.
I've had breast milk by accident before. There is a short hilariously horrible story.
Ex roommate had a baby, ex rommate started pumping. ran out of bottles. Decided to use my empty creamer bottle. Did not tell me. I bet you can guess the rest.
Anyway, it's not that big of a deal. I'd hand him the bottle if he was so interested.
No kids yet, and this probably won't be an issue for a loooong time, but I'd let him taste it as long as it was in some sort of container (like a bottle).
Pretty creepy thinking about it, but I'm sure I'd let him. Pretty sure the situation will never arise though, currently not planning on having kids!
I don't have a problem with it as long as the baby isn't going hungry.
I wouldn't care. SO likes breasts & I can't imagine he'll stop after we have a little one. I'm honestly not sure if he'd be interested or not, but I wouldn't mind if he did. (TBH, it's quite possible he's already gotten a taste & not noticed, as I still occasionally produce a drop or two :P)
I could only breast feed for 2 months sadly, but my SO tasted it. No biggie to me, but that's just me. *shrug* Plus, if you had a baby, you have a while before it dries up and if he's a breast man, he's going there anyway and will taste it. Heck, I thought mine had dried up, but learned with his love of my breasts, he'd made it come back.lol
Hahahahaha sure why not. I'm never planning on having kids so it won't come up but if it did, and he wanted to? Yeah, I see no problem there.
Based on your clarification, DH said "Ick, stop talking. No way"
I voted yes before I read you clarification. I'd let him taste to fulfill his curiosity of what it tastes like, but not for sexual reasons. I'm not really down with mommy/baby role play...
@Paper Rose: I wasn't really insinuating the baby/mother roleplay. More of an intimate act and less of a "role filling."
I once jokingly put a drop on my finger and asked my husband if he wanted a taste. His exact words were "Blech."
So that would be a no. But he otherwise is very into my boobs.
If he really wanted to, sure. Hell, I'm actually mildly curious about it and may try it myself in the future.
ETA: I don't think it would be sexual though, more out of curiosity than anything.
@KatyElle: Yeah, as into my boobs as my DH is, I think I would get the same reaction.
I really wouldn't be comfortable with it. To be honest (and I know some people judge about this, but whatever), I'm still struggling with the idea of having my breasts, which I've always thought of as something sexual, suddenly being what I use to feed my child. I know it's natural, but it's still difficult for me to separate the two. I'm currently pregnant, and as much as I struggle now with that whole concept, having DH drink any of my milk would be taking it a step further - it would be way too much for me.
@Wonderstruck: Yeah, I felt that way when I was pregnant, too- no judgment! My plan was to pump & feed all meals. I ended up really enjoying it, though (and only pumping at work), so you may feel differently once you're in that situation. Either way, best of luck!
@Wonderstruck: I feel exactly the same way you do. I'm glad I'm not alone!
I have breastfed two babies and my husband did try it. I read somewhere that most dads do.
@Wonderstruck: My grandmother felt that way and didn't breastfeed any of her 3 children actually. She was on a military base in Germany with my grandfather when she had her first and people there always breastfed unless they had a medical condition preventing it because they were so poor after the war. The doctors were very confused about why she wouldn't because she was perfectly healthy but she just wasn't comfortable with a baby being attached to her boob.
I'm pretty sure DH will accidently get a taste when we're being intimate even if he doesn't express the desire to do it. We're not PG yet but we've discussed it and I'm pretty sure he'd like to give it a try.
I wouldn't let him suckle but sure. I tasted my own once. I know people are probably shuddering but I heated it up for Baby G and I tested it out on my wrist to see if it was warm and not hot and I thought "Hmm I wonder what it tastes like." So I lickex the drop off of my wrist and went on with my day. I don't feel its any grosser than drinks cows milk. The only difference is a person produces it, specifically I did. If you think about it most of us probably have drank from ours mothers. Its no different and probably really intimate if Hubby does it.
I'm not pregnant yet (despite my best efforts) but when we do have a LO I know curiosity will get the best of me and I will taste it. Probably off my finger or wrist like a PP described. I am the type of person who will probably try to convince DH to taste it too. He will likely be horrified and refuse. lol. Under no circumstances would I allow him to suckle or incorporate the act of breast feeding into our sexual play. To me that's just icky. But that's just me. I despise when people sexualize breast feeding. Like those onesies for baby boys that say "I'm a Boob Man" or "I Heart Boobies".....ugh I CRINGE!!!
@Wonderstruck: I feel the same.
I'm gonna have to give this a NEGATIVE!
Tasting breast milk does not equal sexy times in my book.
I don't imagine him finding it sexual, but if he was curious what it tasted like, sure.
Absolutely. If he wants to taste it I certainly wouldn't stop him.
I didn't read your post before voting.
If he was curious about what breast milk tastes like, I would consider letting him try it. Parenthood is an adventure, right??
Sexually?? HELL NO. I don't feel that breast milk is intended to be sexual lol. It's meant to sustain a baby.
When I nursed my son 26 years ago his father, my ex asked to taste my breast milk. One day I squirted some in a glass and gave it to him. He looked at me strangly and said "No, that's not what I meant. I want to taste it from the source" I'm like "Awww... hell NO". The thought of my grown husband laying in my arms suckling at my breast made me uneasy.
Before birth my breasts = Sexual play toys
After birth my breasts = Food factory
I guess I am going to be that freak who would A.) let him taste it and B.) probably partake in this as a sexual activity.
I will add that FI "sucks" my breasts pretty often during sex, so it's more like neither of us would see the point in stopping that. It's not like I see the act of drinking breastmilk as sexual.
Not a chance. It would make me really uncomfortable (not sure why, it just does), and DH gags at the thought. You've reminded me of this from a while back (DH and I both gagged hearing about it):
No way. Just the thought of DH going anywhere near my breasts once I'm breastfeeding is a huge turn off for me. Should make sex interesting. :/
In a sexual way, no way, Jose! If he was just curious as to what it tasted like, then sure.
Out of curiosity? Sure, I'd put a little on my finger and let him have a taste.
In a sexual/intimate sense? No, that seems too weird for me.
My SO joked about it enough when I was breastfeeding that I think he actually wanted to try some, though not exactly, er, seductively suckle it or anything. But he also confessed to thinking breastfeeding is incredibly sexy and was really breast-obsessed during that time, so maybe he's just a weirdo. :)
*Thinking about it more in a sexual sense, I'm pretty sure I'd let that happen. Could be a really hot, intimate moment!
If he wants to then sure, why not?
If he doesn't, I fully plan on chasing him around the house trying to squirt it at him anyway.
