hows it goin everyone? lol jk my real question is; Is it wrong for daddy to drink babies food supply when mamma is breast feeding? i would really like your opinion on this.

To be honest, I can't understand why you would want to do that in the first place (no offense, just my opinion). From experience, as baby's appetite gets bigger, mamma might have a difficult time producing enough to keep up with baby's demands so anyone else interfering with the supply is just going make it worse...

In addition to just being flat out weird, yes its wrong. Women do not have an endless supply. If you're using it, the baby isn't. No matter what weird fetishes you have, they need to not negatively effect your child. If you are going to do that, they baby needs to be formula fed.

Wrong? meh-not really. Social acceptable in the US- not so much. If it's something your partner is comfortable with & something you both choose to do, I'd keep it between you and the mama. In some cultures it is acceptable to consume a mother's breast milk throughout life.

Are you purposely drinking it or just end up drinking some during foreplay? I definitely don't see a problem with the latter, it's gonna happen. But drinking it to consume, sounds kinda weird to me. However, if you and your partner are ok with it I don't think it will cause any harm. From what I know, breastmilk is produced partially based on suckling. The more the baby drinks, the more momma will produce. To be sure, maybe she should ask a lactation specialist.

Yeah I pretty much concur with the above responders. If it's just a little during intimacy pretty much by accident then ... yeah. But breasts produce with supply and demand so you shouldn't just be consuming the stuff, or adding it to your coffee to save a dollar on creamer. I love my partner's body and am willing to do just about anything to please her, but the milk is for the baby not for me. I can see wanting to try a little just to see what it's like as an adult, but the whole notion to me is a little unsettling and I don't think I'd even do that (except for the foreplay thing which should be plenty sample enough to satisfy curiosity) ...

I vomited in my mouth a little when I read this! The though of drinking breast milk as an adult is very sickening to me. BTW I was breastfed as a baby and I breastfed for alittle while, so I have no problem with breastfeeding a baby. Whild breastfeeding, the "food factories" aka my breast were not someplace my hubby want to go. He wanted no sample what so ever and I had absolutely no desire to give him a sample.

haha. i'm picturing you sneaking around like the hamburgler pilfering the breastmilk stores in the fridge in the middle of the night. too funny.
but yeah dude, not cool. aside from the freakiness factor, it takes a lot of discipline for the mom to maintain a supply of milk. she's got to watch what she eats, what she drinks and pump/feed more often than is convenient. we could debate the benefits vs. formula for children but if she's pumping then she cares about it. and she cares that her kids get it. that's all that should matter to you. it comes down to you vs. your children. i say it's time for you to show a little discipline yourself and lay off the liquid gold.
now if she's willing to set aside a little for you, then that's a different story . . .

What's wrong with it? No, it's not going to interfere with the baby's supply (more suckling = more milk production, there is no "limit" to how much mom can make). Some people are grossed out by it, and that's fine, but for those who enjoy it, there's no reason not to.

Of course there's a limit. I'll let one of the mums answer this...

Well, there's nothing wrong with it nutrition/sanitation-wise, but you want to make sure you aren't "stealing food from your baby". It takes a while for a mom's milk supply to change to be in step with demand (a few days for myself, I don't know about other women), so in the short term if you take anything more than leakage could leave your baby hungry. Other than that, to each his own!

I find it weird, but you know what they say about curiosity and cats...
While intimate the boobs of a breastfeeding mom are prone to leak, I assure you that! to satisfy curiosity is one thing, but to consume I think is wrong for two reasons, first and foremost, you're "stealing" food from your child and second, since the more sucking the more milk mom produces, if you take directly from the source there is a big chance those boobs will get engorged and THAT is no fun at all.

This should be a personal decision between you and your wife. Just make sure you consider all the variables before making a decision.

As a breastfeeding mom, I can tell you that there actually is no limit...as long as breastfeeding was well established in the beginning. I know some women produce more than others, but it is based on demand. If you want to drink it, starting soon after the milk comes in would be best because then if you want to continue her supply will have already taken your consumption into account. I would have let my boyfriend try some if he wanted, but he was so grossed out that he even freaked when a little bit leaked on him. Apparently it's pretty sweet stuff. To each their own.
