Women Are Drinking Each Other’s Breast Milk, Because Why Not?

Robert Donachie | Capitol Hill and Health Care Reporter

Women are now drinking each other’s breast milk, and they are actually enjoying it.

Sabina Urraca, a freelance journalist out of Spain, tried drinking a friend’s breast milk for a week to see if it was the “youth-restoring nectar for adults.” The benefits of drinking breastmilk, as some experts claim, include: improved skin, muscle growth, and a few others. “I decided to find out if drinking this sweet juice of life would do wonders for me too,” Urraca writes.

On the first sip, “the milk is warm and kind of sweet,” and tastes similar to “watery horchata,” Urraca writes. Apparently, the taste of adult breast milk is not that far from “oat milk,” or “rice milk,” except for the aftertaste, which immediately reminds the drinker that it comes from a “mammal.” After her first glass, “fresh off the teat,” Urraca takes a few jars of frozen milk from her lactating friend’s secret reserves.

For the first few days of the week, Urraca drinks her breast milk neat, and not on the rocks. She sees some immediate benefits of feeling “more energetic, more lucid, and purified.” She even feels “less exhausted,” after working out. These benefits, however, ended up being simply placebo. “On the last two days of my week of drinking breast milk, I knew it had all basically been for nothing,” Urraca says. A determined and tenacious young woman, Urraca decided to finish out the week.

With just two milk jars left, she warmed them both up and added “two tablespoons of cacao.” Like a young child watching a heavy snowfall, Urraca sat by a windowsill and lapped up her final bit of chocolaty breast milk. “Whatever breast milk does for an adult, drinking it still feels like you are stealing from a baby,” Urraca concludes.
