Woman Who Breastfed Her Husband Goes Viral With Her Explanation On TikTok
Apart from embracing the bliss of motherhood, there are a lot of things mothers go through for their little ones. One of these painful things is breastfeeding.
This husband, however, decided to help his wife out when she was in absolute pain and discomfort due to a blocked milk duct.
TikTok user Jennifer (@twodears) took to social media platform to share her experience about the time when her daughter was unable to feed on one of her breasts due to a clog that turned into mastitis - an infection in the breast tissue.
“There are some things in marriage and having babies that you just can’t prepare for, and this is one of them,” she explained and added how she had pain in her right breast, and fever before she got antibiotics to treat it.
Jennifer shares that she tried multiple treatments including salt baths and hot water towels and taking supplements to clear the clog, she added how there was a “pretty big knot” in her breast and “nothing was working.”
“So I found this article because I was just Googling and Googling, that said your partner should suck the clog out,” which is something Jennifer said “never in a million year would ever have considered” doing this.
“I mentioned it to my husband, I was like, ‘Do you wanna help me out?’”
“He was like, ‘I would do that for you. I might gag, I might throw up, but I will do that for you.’ So we did it.
“We got this bowl and put it to the side so he could spit it out, and I breastfed my husband,” Jennifer laughed. “Oh my God!”
“I feel like I have PTSD,” she added. “I feel like I can’t look you guys int the eye right now...”
She then recalled her husband’s reaction at having to breastfeed from her: “In the beginning he got a small taste of it and he was like, ‘This is actually really sweet’.
“But then at the end when he unclogged it, he was basically about to gag because it started flowing because the clog was gone, and that was enough. Enough!”
“I feel like we’re bonded for life,” she concluded.
Jennifer's video has gone viral and has been viewed 11.8m times, and received 1.6m likes.
Hundreds of pf people took to the comment section to share their views and thoughts.
One person joked: “As a father of 0, I have done this before.”
“Not all hero’s wear capes, some wear bibs,” another person said.
Someone else added: “Normalise this! There’s nothing wrong with this! Doing natural things can feel unnatural because we are so removed from our instincts.”
“Ladies and gentlemen, This is marriage. You go all the way for your spouse. That’s a heck of a story,” a fourth person commented.
Meanwhile, someone also wrote: “Ok and now it’s story time from his perspective.”
So in her next follow-up video, Jennifer shared with people the same story from her husband's perspective.
“So I breastfed from my wife,” he said while the pair laughed. “And she was in a lot of pain, it was a different kind of experience, and I felt like I was sucking poison out of you, like when you have a snakebite.
“All I could think about was your pain and how she [the baby] wasn’t getting enough milk and I just wanted to take action on the problem and I did it.”
Jennifer then asked her husband to rate the taste of her breastmilk, to which he replied: “It was very good. I guess maybe I’d give it a 9.
“I mean, it was a 10 but I don’t want to admit it was a 10,” he explained.
