Yep and it's nasty. I guess we all think of milk as what comes in a jug or carton. Bleh!

Ya, teehee..the colostrum is thick and kinda funky tasting, but when true breastmilk comes in it's thin and sweet..it smells and tastes Soooooooo much better than formula!!

DH accidentally drank his aunts milk when he was a kid lol it traumatized him. I didn't ever officially try my milk where I thought about taste. but I would lick it off my arm or something if it dripped without thinking about it.

I'm trying to remember- pregnancy brain has wiped out most of my cognitive brain function.
I think I tried my actual breast milk last time and it was sweet.

I tasted it and it was sweet. Like milk that cereal had been left in.

And I find it hilarious that anyone would be grossed out by human milk but we drink it from a nasty cow tit with no problem. lol We are so backwards sometimes. I can see not wanting to drink a stranger's cause you don't know what they have going on.

Jillian, so true! I told DH the other day that he was drinking cow's breast milk and he got all grossed out for a few minutes...but seriously, that's what it is.

Anyway, I've tasted my breastmilk before. It's super sweet tasting. Never tasted the colostrum though.

Umm, my DH has tasted mine from tap but he didn't mean to I started leaking in the middle of some fun after having Lily and he got a mouthful. I thought it was hilarious, he did not think it was quite as funny.

i tried to taste it, but I dont know if theres just not enough to taste anything or else it's just flavorless right now.

Working at daycare, feeding the babies I would lick off the baby food when it got on me and once without thinking I licked cereal made with a mom's breastmilk and it was not good or sweet at all, it tasted very full and smoky almost. I wonder if thats because it wasn't mine, or because it had been frozen and thawed? IDK hope mine tastes better cant wait to find out HAHA!

It was probably because it was that nasty cereal. That stuff is gross.

What is coming out of you know isn't truly the same thing the baby will be getting. And I'm sure colostrum tastes different than the milk too.

i wonder if drinking colostrum has any health benefits. they say it does for baby, why not us? my immune system has tooken a beating this pregnancy.. and my boobs are producing this stuff at a rapid rate, i can't help but wonder about this miracle juice...

It probably does have health benefits for you. There are vitamins/supplements that contain cow/bovine colostrum for their benefits and people take those

Have you considered having your placenta encapsulated, that gives you tons of health benefits. I want to do it but there is no-one close enough to me available.

Becky, you can encapsulate it yourself. There's tons of instructions and tutorials if you Google it. I've had a few friends do that.
