WARNING: This post might be full of T.M.I. (too much information) for some that know me!!
I listen to local radio station, WKRQ, 101.9FM, here in Cincinnati. On Wednesdays listeners can call in to the Jeff & Jenn morning show and share something in an effort to “wow” others, hence they call it Wow Wednesday.
Yesterday a woman called in talking about how she was making dinner for her hubby/boyfriend (not sure which it is) and her kids and discovered that she had ran out of milk. With no time to run for more, I’m guessing, she decided to substitute her breast milk (she is currently nursing a baby) in place of regular milk in the recipe. Dinner was a success, seems the family really liked it. Well, that is, until she explained the little substitution she had made, then seems her significant other and kids were completely grossed out.
The one show host posted it on his Facebook page, and it was the topic of conversation briefly this morning on the show during my drive in. Those calling in or leaving FB comments had some strong opinions.
Now me..well my ex-hubby loved breast milk. He asked me if he could try it when I was nursing our daughter and found it to be tasty. He also found it kinda hot in a kinky sort of way. I admit, one time when I had been unable to get home in a timely manner to feed the baby, and became engorged I needed his help. A breast pump wasn’t working and I was in pain, so I grabbed Mr. Kinky-cheeks and took him to the bedroom and asked him to assist in the relief efforts. He was more than happy to oblige.
Breast milk is considered the perfect food for a baby, assuming of course that mama is healthy, not doing drugs or drinking. Cow’s milk, as one caller pointed out, is loaded with additives and steroids these days. So what is the big hairy deal? One caller said she used breast milk for her husband’s coffee when they ran out of creamer and he liked it so much she continues to do so. I’m a bit undecided on this one, still mentally chewing it.
