Have You Tasted Your Own Breast Milk?

suckling pigletsAccording to Us Magazine, Pete Wentz has tried his wife Ashlee Simpson's breast milk and says it tastes "soury" and "weird." Hmm. My husband has no idea how my breast milk tastes and, for that matter, neither do I. But some of the moms in the CafeMom Newcomers Club have tried their own breast milk.

Rhynstonefreak asked, "Is it okay to drink your own breast milk?" Apparently, she has a friend who has so much, she uses it in her coffee. Here's what some of the other Baby Mamas had to say:

"I don't know and I don't want to know!" —copperswifey

"You can, but I don't think I would want to." —Blondee512

"It is fine and healthy to drink your own breast milk! It tastes good. It is good for many things. My teenage brother was having really bad acne and was on a few different Rx's for it, but nothing was helping. I pumped two ounces of breast milk and my mom put it on his face and back and the next day it was almost completely cleared up." —TreysMommy0717

"I have tasted mine. It is very very sweet." —CarlaD

"Why couldn't you? Why would it be healthy for an infant, but not for you? It's milk not pee! Mine tastes sweet like the sugary milk in the bottom of a cereal bowl." —Mama2HannahLynn

How about you? Have you (or has anyone other than your baby) tasted your breast milk?
