A mother-of-three, Rachel Bailey, 30, has revealed that br£a§tfeeding her husband, Alexander, 30, has brought them closer together and improved their marriage.
She says it all started in 2017 when she found herself over-lactating following the birth of her second child. According to Metro UK, she said: “When my middle child, Aria, now six, was br£a§tfeeding, I went away on a cruise with Alexander,” Rachel recalled. “However, I forgot my br£a§t pump and was badly engorged for two days. I was in so much p#in and I was scared about getting an inf£ction, so we decided that my husband was going to try drinking the milk to relieve me.
We were nervous about the idea of him br£a§tfeeding from me but as soon as we did it, we realised it was perfectly fine.”
However, according to Rachel, her husband liked the taste of her br£a§t milk — even preferring it to cow’s milk now – and reaped all the benefits of the extra nutrition. “Alexander felt so much more energised when he was drinking my milk. He didn’t get a cold for two years after he started drinking my milk and so many people said his skin was so much better too, “said Rachel.
After she gave birth to her third child, Rachel – who was over-lactating again – br£a§tfed her husband at breakfast, lunch and dinner. She revealed that she always a,de sure that her three children were fed before her husband as it became a genuine bonding experience for them. She noted that it made her marriage stronger.
Now that she’s producing less milk, she’s only able to feed Alexander at night.
“I am sad that our br£a§tfeeding times have reduced now because I feel like it has taken away our routine of those blocks of quality time that we had together,’ Rachel noted.
