Go somewhere where you have at least 10 or 20 feet to work with and somewhere where you'll be able to see you milk hit a surface (tile, driveway, deck, dry dirt, etc) then SQUIRT YOUR Milk as far as you can. Then take a rough measure and report back.

Mine dribbles. Seriously. It's a good thing it doesn't correlate with ability to breastfeed an infant.

Wimpy squirter here, lol. My mom used to laugh that she'd squirt my dad across the room when she was nursing me. I guess I don't have her squirting gene!

When my little one's been attached all day, I can barely get out a drizzle, but when he's skipped a regular nursing time, I can get it all the way across my kitchen- nearly 10 feet!

I just squirted about 6 feet. When I'm fuller, I can squirt about 10. It was only a few occasions where I got close to 15.

DH and I mess around with my squirting abilities regularly. For the poll, I chose 5-10.

: Only here on MDC would I find a topic like this... As for my squirting abilities only once have I been able to squirt more then 15-20 feet and that is because I was REALLY late with a feeding. I have hyperlactation/overabundant milk supply and if I go to long without a my little one nursing not only do I leak but when she does start nursing its (my other boob) starts squirting everywhere... my husband and I laugh at all the places we find dried breast milk later...

Squirter here, too I don't quite have the distance that I used to....my milk used to squirt out to past my feet all on it's own. I'm at about three feet now. Oh, and btw, thank you for asking

My husband got in the car once (passenger side) and said "hon, are these round spots on the winsheild and my door milk?"
"Yes" I say
He couldn't figure out why there was milk spattered all over the car.
I had to squirt a friend once while I was driving. A bee stung her and it was the only thing with healing powers we had at the time
There is dried milk everywhere.
I like how it like develops over a few months and becomes more distinct.

Hey, I don't have any milk right now, but this poll was fun and I wanted to join, so I answered based on what I know I could do in the past. I could only squirt about 6 inches or maybe 8, that's it. I don't know why; I had plenty of milk but no ooomph behind it, kwim?

I threaten dh that I am going to "shoot" him, while holding a breast in my hand. He always get a laugh out of it. Sometimes I do "shoot" him if he isn't wearing good clothes.

I voted 5-10 feet. If I am especially full, I can squirt past 10 feet.

I thought I was the only weirdo that did that.

I have to say that, much to my husband's dismay, I love using my boobies as squirt guns.

Well.....not too far anymore...BUT back in the day, I could get it REALLY far! In fact...my breasts produced(still do) A LOT of milk and it was uncomortable waking up to rocks on my chest, even when DS nursed frequently at night or driving in the car...so our house had lots of milk splatters everywhere. Windows, mirrors...headboards, the back seats of the car....

Maybe I am marking my territory.

My supersoakers can squirt 10-15 feet if I am really full, otherwise about 10 feet. I am always spraying the bathroom mirror in the morning.
