Yesterday morning I was trying to get dd to sleep a bit longer so I was nursing her after her intial waking. She and I both were about to fall back asleep and she bit me. If I had been paying attention it wouldn't have happened. Anyway, later on when we go tout of bed that side was still too sore to nurse so I pumped about 4 oz to relieve the engorgement. She doesn't take a bottle and just spills from a cup so I didn't give it to her later. I didn't want to waste it so I used it to thin the mushroom soup I was making. It turned out well. A little sweet though so I used more salt than usual. Dh was really cool with it and liked it too. I don't know why its taken me this long to be comfortable with consuming my own milk. Damn society for making me feel strange about it!

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

I was just discussing this with my partners friend. We were talking about BFing and I told him that my partner has never tasted my milk. He asked if Dp would try it if I put it in a cup. I said No way. He too said "That's so strange that he will drink a glass of cow's milk and not a glass of human milk.'' This coming from a single guy with no children, I was impressed!

I cringe at the idea of drinking my own milk. Blech, I also don't like sweet food though, and I tried my milk, it is sweeter than any junk food I've ever tried.

OK, well this has given me the whatever ist is that I needed - not courage exactly - to drink my own milk when I am away from my 2 year-old. We hope to take a weekend trip in a few months. Whis dd#1, I needed to express milk one weekend and I tasted it, but could not bring myself to drink it. So I threw it away. But what a waste. If it is good enough for her, it must be good enough for me. I have thought about it since and thought, I have to drink it next time!
