Man Attempts To Live Off Breast Milk

Published: Sep 23, 2021

A man is blogging about attempting to live off of his wife’s breast milk. The man identifies himself only as Curtis on the blog, donthaveacowcurtis.blogspot.com. He says after the birth of their child nine months ago, they have an extensive supply of his wife’s frozen breast milk.

The couple has three children and part of the supply is from the birth of their first two children. “I mean cow milk was made for baby cows, why not drink human breast milk that was made for baby humans,” Curtis wrote in a post.

A North Carolina expert says it is likely Curtis will get no nutritional value out of the breast milk. Martin Binks, clinical director of Binks Behavioral Health in Durham, N.C., said “breast milk is unlikely to benefit Curtis, as humans experience changing dietary needs as they grow.”

Curtis had written on his third day of the breast milk diet that he “had no problems with BMs, (bowel movements) mostly because I haven’t had one yet.”

“While babies’ digestive systems and nutritional needs are provided for in such a diet, as we develop into adulthood, our nutritional needs evolve in such a way that we need a balance of nutritional foods for good health, including fiber,” Binks said. “Breast milk cannot provide all we, as adults, need nutritionally and, in fact, (breast milk) has very high levels of cholesterol.”

The World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life, with solids gradually being introduced around this age when signs of readiness are shown. Supplemented breastfeeding is recommended until at least age two and then for as long as mutually desired by mother and child wish.
