have you ever tasted your babies formula or your own breast milk?

i tried my sons formula when he was small and it was horrible!!!! Does breast milk taste that bad too if any moms have tasted their own? I just want to know if anyone has...i only tried my sons food because i of course wanted to taste what i was feeding him. I dont know why but he seemed to like it =)

  • yes to both.. my SO likes to try and get some milk from me now that I"m almost lactating again.. breastmilk doesn't taste bad but formula is NASTY!!
    IMO, babies like it cuz they don't know any better

  • I have tasted both and that is why I won't feed my kids formula. It tastes like iron...YUCK! Breastmilk tastes like sweet milk. So much more appealing than formula.
    Not bashing formula, but the stuff taste bad!

  • formula tastes like something dead and liquefied. i tried it once to see how bad it was- i vomited.

    breast milk is sweet, almost like melon juice (pardon the pun)... my so is the reason i'm still producing as much as i am, he must like it too! lol

  • My hubby loves breast milk, I tease him that it's because he was a formula fed baby. lol but breast milk is really sweet. And formula just smells awful but after not producing anymore for some odd reason I had to switch my son to formula

  • BREAST Milk - are like fat free milk but SWEETER.
    FORMULA ARE SO THICK and Gross smells bad too.

    Now I understand why my kids never liked formula.

  • I tasted my own breastmilk. It's really sweet. No wonder my kids liked to nurse so much, LOL!!

  • Like everyone else said bm is sweet and thinner. My older son didn't ever want any formula he'd go like 9 hrs w/out eating b/c he didn't like it. My younger one does ok with it is small amounts if there isn't enough bm.
