Would You Drink Breastmilk? (Video)

Would you drink your sister’s?

I was looking at the latest post on the Blacktating blog and saw a post on the famous Mowry twins, Tia and Tamera, who apparently have a reality show. In the episode, Tia, who recently had a baby, convinces Tamera to try a freshly-pumped cup of her breastmilk. Well, after a bit of reluctance not only did Tamera try it, but she liked it  — comparing it to chai tea.

I found it funny reading some of the comments about this. Though on the Blacktating blog there were no real reactions of disgust since most of the readers are breastmilk advocates, others said it’s OK since they are twins, and they may be willing to try a sip but not a full glass. And then you just know there are plenty of others freaking out over this — right before they’re off to drink their pus/ fecal matter/hormone- injected cow’s milk, that is. Well, I can tell you this; I do have a twin sister, and I would probably try her breastmilk. I wonder if Tia has ever tried her milk herself.

What are the reasons you would or would not try mother’s milk?

  1. I tasted my own. If I had NEVER breastfeed and was curious I would tasted my sisters (no sibling for me) so I guess it would of been one of friends who had a baby if I wanted to. I don’t see the big deal in it..but I don’t think I would chugged a whole glass, ….that milk is for the baby.

  2. i feel my gag reflex being initiated. lol. i wouldn’t drink my own breastmilk under normal circumstances. i know a couple others (adults) that have tasted it and they didn’t have a problem with it. then again, given the circumstance, they wouldn’t have ;)

  3. Gag reflex? I don’t know if I’d rush to pour a cup over my cereal, but think it’d be neat to see what my baby is tasting — you know, a taste tester. LOL hmmm, and about that ‘given the circumstances’? ;)
