Come on.... admit it.... you have tasted your own breastmilk, right?


I tasted it when I was nursing Mason LOL. It was never like a swallow or anything, just a dap on my tongue. I use the drop in bottles and it was hard to squeeze all the air out sometimes, so I suck it out through the nipple.. and sometimes a drop gets in my mouth LOL! I have to say though, fresh milk and frozen milk taste totally different. Makes me wonder....

Yup I've tasted it. I was preparing her bottles for the next day and just tasted a little that was on my finger. I was curious It surprised me how sweet it was. I've never tasted frozen though. DH had the grossest look on his face when I did it. LOL!

Of course I have! Has anyone seen the Friends episode where Ross' ex-wife Carol is breastfeeding? There is a big thing about tasting it. Very funny. On that show they said it tastes like cantaloupe juice! Very true.

i have tasted it by accident. Once i tasted his rice cereal, forgetting I used breastmilk and another time I had some on my finger and licked it off not thinking. Oh well, it definately is sweet. I can see why now DS will eat ice cream and hates baby food. LOL

I have tasted everything I've ever fed to my son, including my breastmilk! It's yummy! I wouldn't drink a glass or anything but I think it's normal to want to taste it!

Yeah I can't believe how sweet it is. It surprises me! I feel like if I drank that much sweetness I would be sick.

Wow, three kids and I never have. However, I really like cow's milk and drink it all the time, but the thought of warm milk totally grosses me out, so that is probably why I never have tried it. I guess after reading these posts it tastes nothing like cow's milk but I just have it in my head that it does

A friend of mine asked me if I tasted it yet, I said no cause for some reason I find it gross. Sorry but I do She said a friend of hers has been lactating for a few years cause her husband loves it She said he said it was sweet too. I asked my b/f if he wanted to try it, he was like ewww gross!!

Completely true!! Or like those sweet creamers you put in your coffee. It is completely yummy. No wonder some babies don't wean for awhile.
