A 30-year-old American woman stunned many when she revealed that she has been breastfeeding her husband for the past six years.
Rachel Bailey revealed in a viral video that she began breastfeeding her husband Alexander in 2017.
She revealed that it all started when they went on a cruise in 2017 and she failed to bring her breast pump with her. She had just given birth to their second child at the time.
According to the young woman, the overproduction of milk caused her tremendous discomfort, and her husband had to save the situation, and they have never looked back since.
The mother of three states in the video that the deed has also enhanced their relationship.
“It’s not a kink for us. It started as Alexander just helping me out when I was in pain, but it turned into more of an emotional bonding thing.
"When my eldest child, Troy, now seven, was breastfeeding, I went away on a cruise with Alexander," she said.
"However, I forgot my breast pump and was badly engorged for two days. I was in so much pain and I was scared about getting an infection, so we decided that my husband was going to try drinking the milk to relieve me," .
The pair was aware that what they were doing would upset many people, but they persisted.
"We were nervous about the idea of him breastfeeding from me as we thought it seemed weird, but as soon as we did it, we realised it was perfectly fine.
"Alexander said that the milk was really different to how he expected it to taste, compared to the normal milk he was used to drinking,"
On the other hand, Alexander notes that ever since he’s been drinking his wife’s breastmilk he has gotten sick less and his skin has improved. He also says he prefers the taste of her breastmilk to that of cow’s milk.
Rachel added; “It allows us to spend quality time together. It’s definitely brought us closer as a couple,”.
The couple said the husband spends 5-10 minutes feeding on each breast a day.
The woman added that she used to breastfeed her hubby at least three times a day but now it has reduced to one because she is producing less milk.
