A 30-year-old woman from the USA, Rachel Bailey, has opened up about an unorthodox practice with her husband, Alexander, that she claims has not only brought them closer but also improved his health. The couple began the unusual routine of her breastfeeding him in 2017 and have not looked back since.
Rachel, a mother of three, asserts that her husband hasn’t suffered a cold in two years and has received numerous compliments on his glowing skin, attributing both to her breast milk. The couple maintains that they feel no embarrassment over their unconventional practice, as it has brought no harm to either of them.
The unique arrangement started while Rachel was nursing their children and found herself over-lactating. On a cruise holiday, she forgot her breast pump and became painfully engorged. The couple decided to try using her husband as a means of relief.
While both were initially apprehensive, they found the experience to be “perfectly fine”, with Rachel describing it as an “instant relief”. She also noted that the practice has fostered a special bond between them. When she was producing the most milk following the birth of their children, Alexander would consume her milk three to four times a day.
