    Oh wow!!!
    I'll be sharing it out then, I can't wait to try a bit. It would be good if you took it a step further and made cheese. I wonder what that would be like haha.

    Haha that's amazing, no more cows milk in this house anymore.
    If it got rid of my spots I'd be one very happy girl!

    There was an article in pick me up magazine a few months ago and it was a daughter who gave her mother breast milk because she had cancer and thought it might stop it from returning... worth a try i suppose! xx x

    Even though I breastfed my daughter for quite a while (18 months) my milk made me cringe if I saw it.

    I could never taste it, no idea why I feel like this! :wacko:

    Stupid, I know!

    I've tasted mine but I don't think I could drink a glass of it. I also don't think I could express a glass full.

    I understand people who do it to nurse their family back to health.. I read an article once and a girl started giving milk to her mum OFF THE BREAST! Not expressing etc there was a picture of her mum lay over her lap sucking at her breast. That was too far for me! x

    Didn't someone do that with their dad too? :wacko: I think he had cancer or something like that. Admirable I suppose, but for me (and just IMO) that's father daughter bonding gone too far :shrug:

    ETA: he doesn't actually feed from her - she expresses it.

    Ewww, I'd definitely express for anyone other than my baby and OH? Or is it weird for OH to have it from the breast? I can't decide.
    But your mum :S

    I read a story once, think it was in Love It, about a woman who breast fed her Yorkshire Terrier!! Directly from her breast!! She did it whilst breastfeeding her child!! She said it was fine, because she always cleaned her nipple before feeding her baby!!
    Waaaaaaaaaay too far for me!!

    Not sure if that is actually true or not because you lose the ability to suckle if you stop breast feeding. I breastfed my son until he was 2 and now he has stopped for a couple of months and he has forgotten how to latch on and suck properly.

    I also put a bit of breast milk on mosquito bites and it takes away the itch!
