Breastfeeding fathers?

Have you ever heard of this? Know someone who has done this? I have never heard of it and thought it wasn't possible, but here it talks about how it IS possible and here it shows it was done back in Old Testament Bible days!

What do you think of this?

  • I think it's bull, sorry. She said he "willed" his body to do it. I don't know how long I've "willed" my body to drop 10lbs and it hasn't happened yet. When it does, I'll believe that story.

  • Anon: Try reading more than just the first story in the first link. There's more information there - not just someone who "willed" himself to do it. Also, you CAN will yourself to lose 10 lbs. I willed myself to lose 100 lbs and was successful. It takes much MORE than wanting to - you have to want it mind, body and soul. THAT my dear is truly "willing" yourself to doing something.

  • Well I thought this was a load of horse manure until I looked into it on google and found a few other sources [baby sites, wiki, scientific sites etc] and apparently men have everything there to produce milk. It is unknown however if the milk is of the same standard that mums produce.

    Here is a link from scientificamerica.com - http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=strange-but-true-males-can-lactate
