Breastfeeding and breastmilk are things that people don’t spend a whole lot of time thinking about before getting pregnant and facing decisions about all kinds of things that previously seemed kind of weird and/or gross. That said, plenty of men are curious about what their children seem to find so endlessly appetizing – or find themselves accidentally partaking during foreplay, things like that.
These 10 men tasted it on purpose though, so if you’re curious, here are their unedited thoughts from Romper.
#10. So sweet.
“Very sweet almond milk. I didn’t expect it to be so sweet, so it was definitely surprising the first time.”
#9. Still feels weird.
“Off-putting. I haven’t gotten over the mental block that it’s milk my wife makes to feed our baby and every now and then I get a mouthful of it during intimate moments. It’s not really a big deal but it still feels weird.”
#8. A sort of grainy aftertaste.
“Like the milk that’s left after you’re done with a sugary cereal. It’s really sweet, obviously milky, but there’s also sort of a grainy aftertaste, too.”
“A cross between milk and Vitamin Water.”
#5. That makes it sound downright delightful.
“Like warm, melted vanilla ice cream.”
#4. I feel this description.
“Weak, over-sweetened tea with too much milk in it.”
#3. That stuff is vile.
“I thought it tasted weird and sort of bad until I tried infant formula. That stuff is vile. I don’t know how babies drink it!”
#2. Brunch is very confusing.
“There was an episode of Friends where a character describes it as tasting like melon juice, and it does. It’s the perfect description. Eating cantaloupe is sort of awkward now. Brunch is very confusing.”
#1. It’s not gross.
“Skim milk that hasn’t gone sour but it’s going to soon. It’s thin and extra sweet. That makes it sound gross, but it’s not.”
Just so you know, most women taste their own – we have to, to make sure pumped bottles are good for baby!
