Kendra Wilkinson Drank Her Own Breast Milk and So Should You

70

kendra wilkinson, hank baskett, hank jrCelebs ... they're just like us! Or are they? Kendra Wilkinson raised eyebrows recently by admitting that she drank her own breast milk when she was nursing her now 21-month-old son, Hank Jr. Who would do such a thing??

Hold your judgmental horses. First of all, Kendra wasn't pumping her own private stash and telling the barista at Starbucks to make her latté with it or anything. Kendra just dabbled in breast milk, you know, at parties. Every now and then.

No, I'm not kidding.

What else was the former Girl Next Door supposed to do when her boobs started leaking at big events but duck into the nearest bathroom and breastfeed herself?

Hey, at least Kendra says her milk "tasted sweet." (I always did think she seemed like a nice girl.)

In all seriousness, WHO CARES if Kendra drank her own breast milk?? Why is it weird to consume milk from your own breast but perfectly acceptable to drink milk squeezed out of a cow's udder? Really, think about it. Yeah. Which one is weirder?

The fact that people think what Kendra did is soooo bizarre simply serves as further proof that our society has some big-time issues with breasts. They're for sex! No, they're for babies! Wait, they can't be for both! Oh my god, a nipple! Look away, look away!

Get over it, people. I think pretty much every breastfeeding mom I knew, myself included, tasted her own milk at some point, either by accident or out of curiosity. (And don't tell me men wouldn't do the same thing.) Kendra's right; it does taste sweet. Which explains why your baby is a total breast-milkaholic.

Spill it ... did you ever taste your own breast milk?

The whole idea of tasting it weired me out. My husband did, which freaked me out too. 


I did have to manually express it a couple times (I wasn't comfortable breast feeding in public) to make sure I didn't choke my son while feeding him. And while on a short vacation where I only breast fed him in the hotel before leaving, and used formula when we were outside. I got more comfortable with it as I went along, by 3 months I was doing it every where. :P

I can't tell a lie... I did try a teeny amount  (like a drop)  it wasn't horrible. but it's not something I would pour in a glass and drink....

Absolutely. My kid drinks it. Why shouldn't I?


And that's a good point about the cows. Milk from another species is cool, but milk made by my own body is not. Makes no damned sense.

of course... mostly I just taste it when I'm clearing a drop or two after pumping. It's not gross. On the other hand, I'm certainly not drinking it, that stuff is too precious to waste on me. no need to be too up tight, it's just curious. Hell, I"ve had cow's milk, goats milk and camel milk

Yeah, of course I tried it, although just a sip once after pumping because I was curious. My husband did too (although on accident during some sexy time lol). He said it tastes like milk at the bottom of the cereal bowl.

I could never bring myself to try it, but my husband did.

I agree with the cereal milk taste, based on the few drops I've tried. Also agree that it's too precious to waste on me, so never had a big swig. I don't find it weird or odd at all that she had some, I'm just curious about the logistics… it says she breastfed herself. How?

ok ok ok I did try my own and it is sweet. My 3 and 5 y/o tasted the drops out of the bottles I pumped in...they always wanted to be helpful, so I would pump around 8 at night to up my statsh for daycare and they always liked to put the bottles in the sink. Well I went around the island in our kitchen and there is my dd and ds drinking the drops out of the bottles. It was pretty funny becuase they both said mmmm yummy, I had to take a pic.

Yes I did!!! It tastes sweeter and is thinner than regular milk. I tasted it when it leaked out. I'm just wondering how in the world she breastfed herself?!? She must be a heck of a contortionist.

My boobs are only a D and if I wanted, I could get my mouth to meet my nipple.  It wouldn't be comfortable, but I could do it.
