I drank my own breast milk

Is it gross to admit that I have tried my own breast milk? Look, there would have been a time in my life when I would have pulled a disgusted face and claimed to be repulsed by this….but that was until I had my daughter and my life became consumed by the liquid gold that constantly dripped from my nips.

I became really fascinated by the off-white liquid that my boobs delivered direct to my girl and judging by the way she attacked me when it was feeding time, I figured it must taste ok. So I did it….I expressed some into a glass and took a tentative sip. This may or may not seem totally gross to you, but it was actually really, really good. Sweet and vanilla-y. Would have been a treat chilled with a dash of Kahlua, but I wasn’t selfish and kept it all for my hungry babe. No wonder bubs are mad for the stuff.

This vid of people trying human breast milk is awesome and pretty much exactly how I would sum it up. …

Have you ever tried breast milk as a grown-up?
