    We're about to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Friends, so you have the perfect reason to start re-watching all 10 seasons and maybe testing your Friends trivia knowledge. Test number one: anyone remember the episode where the friends taste Ross' ex's breast milk? Well if you don't, Jennifer Aniston will give you an eerie real-life version of the story. Turns out, Aniston is good friends with Jimmy Kimmel and his wife, so when Kimmel's wife started breastfeeding, Aniston had a little taste of the breast milk

    Yes, she's serious. Seems like she wasn't spooked one bit and even went on to call it "sweet." We'll take her word for it, but watch the whole hilarious exchange here:

    We've long known about Olivia Wilde's amazing sense of humor and her appreciation for a good joke. As the latest celebrity to jump on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge bandwagon, the actress did something exceptionally odd: instead of pouring ice-cold water over her head, she declared that she was going to use her own breast milk instead -- before proceeding to dump what looks like milk all over herself.

    We're not sure if she's trying to make a statement about nursing, or just poking fun at her new Hot Nature Mama image, but this is definitely the strangest ALS challenge video to surface -- and let's hope it's the last!

    Take the science on how breastfeeding affects boys ... as opposed to girls. Or what nursing a newborn will do to your sleep (no, really, this one will shock you!). For some fun nursing trivia (you know, if you're ever caught in that sort of game), get a load of these eight surprising facts about breastfeeding:

    When your baby was born, all you probably heard was that breast is best, so you stayed up all night, every night, nursing every hour with cracked nipples, wondering if there was ever an end in sight. Sure, breastfeeding probably got easier and maybe you even like the bonding now ... but wouldn't you just loooove to wear a sexy non-nursing bra and not have your kiddo pawing at your shirt every night? That could mean that it's time to wean, because like all good things, breastfeeding must eventually come to an end. Here are 5 ways to know it's the right time to stop breastfeeding (and not feel guilty).

    I stood, back hunched over to protect my throbbing breasts from the pinpricks of hot water in the shower, and let loose sobs that echoed around our tiny bathroom. My husband waited outside the curtain, begging, "Just give her formula. It's okay. You don't have to do this to yourself anymore." Our daughter was less than a week old. I was failing at breastfeeding, and I felt like a failure as a mom, as a human being.

    It would take another week to give up nursing entirely, and I sank into a bout of postpartum depression that would take some serious anti-depressants to beat. I felt completely alone at the time. But according to a new breastfeeding study, I was anything but.

    Researchers at the University of Cambridge’s Department of Sociology have now found a link between breastfeeding failure and higher rates of postpartum depression.

    Restaurant critic Nancy Miller who writes for The Courier-Journal had a very delicious meal at Palermo Viejo, so I've learned. I'm not one to read random restaurant reviews from cities I don't live in or have immediate plans on visiting, but this review of the Louisville, Kentucky, Argentinian eatery caught my attention because Miller not only choose to review the meal, but the meal that another person was having at the table next to her. A baby's meal. A baby who was having breastmilk.

    Miller's review starts out raving about the delectable dishes such as fideos al estofado and cerdo con repollo and how she wants to eat eat eat at Palermo Viejo as much as possible. Then she takes up issue with a mother breastfeeding her child right there in the restaurant.

    Any mom who has ever breastfed is probably quite familiar with the little contraption known as the breast pump. It's pretty safe to say that using one for the first time is quite the experience.

    Sure, the concept itself sounds easy enough, but a lot of women wind up a little blown away by the difficulty factor and learning curve involved in mastering the darn thing.

    They say breast is best, so it's hard to imagine a hospital advising a mom who wants to breastfeed that she shouldn't even attempt to nurse. But that's exactly what happened to a new mom in Oregon this month. Crystal Cain was told she couldn't breastfeed her daughter in the hospital because she's used medical marijuana since pregnancy

    Take note of the word "medical." Cain is not your garden variety pothead. She actually took the drug -- legally -- on the advice of her midwife as a means to control both anxiety and nausea during pregnancy.
