We’ve all been told many times by health experts that breastmilk is best for infants. Breastmilk builds up the strength in their delicate, fragile, little bodies and helps them to fight against potential illnesses during the early stages of a baby’s life.
And, as the breastfeeding advocates often say, it’s the most natural thing in the world, and therefore something that people shouldn’t be ashamed for.
Yes, it’s safe to say that breastmilk is a pretty incredible and vital substance.
But usually, by a certain age, our mothers would have weaned us off breastmilk for good. And that’s because as we get older, breastmilk becomes less beneficial for our stronger, less vulnerable bodies.
And while we all know that there are some mothers who will insist on breastfeeding their little ones beyond the “acceptable” age, you’ve probably heard less about romantic relationships where one partner breastfeeds the other.
Well, we have a story about a thirty-six-year-old lady Jennifer Mulford from Atlanta who has made the brazen and probably quite questionable decision to quit her job for the greater good of breastfeeding her 36-year-old boyfriend, Brad Leeson.
They are part of what is known as an “Adult Breastfeeding Relationship” which is typically made up of two consenting adult partners who get pleasure out of breastfeeding.
To help her lactate, Mulford drinks Mother’s Milk Tea (a herbal drink which supposedly imitates female hormones) up to three times a day. And she also takes a herbal pill called Lactiful to help her increase her milk supply.
In this case, Mulford is the ‘breastfeeder’ and she said of their bizarre arrangement in an interview with The Sun, “It was like a light switched flicked in [my boyfriend’s] head. I could tell from his voice that he was curious and excited.”
