Would You?

Would You? If you were producing plenty of Breast Milk..Would you give your Older Child who was never given breast milk as an infant. Pumped Breast Milk In a Cup to Drink. Or would you put chocolate/some other tasty flavor into the cup of breast milk, if your child did not like the taste of breast milk on its own. Now you were producing breast milk that you were giving to your new infant?

  • Sure but without the chocolate. It's human milk rather than cow milk so it is made for human consumption.

    I would just make sure that I always have enough for the infant first.

  • No....if the child is still old enough to drink formula or breast milk they aren't old enough to have chocolate.

  • I wouldn't....but breast milk still kinda grosses me out. I never could taste my own milk when I was BF'ing and I would honestly feel bad for giving it to my older child. No real reason why....I just would.

  • I think it would depend on the age of the child and the situation..

    personally my three year old probably wouldn't drink it because it isnt' exactly tasty after you've had cows milk and water and really anything else, lol.. (no offense to her when she was a ababy, or my 6 month old that I'm breast feeding now, or myself when I was a child or anyone else, lol, but it isn't the tastiest, lololol).
