Breastfeeding her husband for three days, Janelle, 32, caused a stir on the Internet. However, her nursing experience goes beyond this as the mother of 4 candidly shares the importance of breastfeeding in her incredible journey.
Breastfeeding her husband for 3 days
On TikTok, Janelle shared a story from her recent Puerto Rico trip, confessing to resorting to unconventional solutions. She recounted that during their 4-day vacation with her husband, Joshua, she had a moment of panic as she had forgotten her breast pump.
After skipping one day of pumping, the mother described the sensation in her breasts as if they were burning. In an online video, Janelle humorously remarked, “You know the part in your marriage vows, ‘for better or for worse?’ Well, I had to take my husband up on that this last week.” She requested her husband’s assistance and concluded by saying, “I had to breastfeed my husband.”
The video quickly gained immense popularity, amassing nearly 15,000 likes and sparking various reactions and comments from astounded viewers. In response to a query about hand pumping, Janelle explained, “I tried so hard, but for some reason, it wasn’t working until I had some suction going.”
Her spouse had to taste her breast milk once more.
In another viral video, Janelle organized a blind taste test for her husband, slyly including her breast milk in the lineup of oat, whole, and almond milk. With a grimace, Joshua quickly identified the breast milk, exclaiming, “That’s your breast milk. I’m positive.”
She additionally keeps breastfeeding for her sister-in-law’s child.
Janelle stressed the significance of breastfeeding, expressing, “I love breastfeeding, it’s such a great bonding experience with the mom and the baby.”
Consequently, when her sister-in-law Lisa encountered challenges with milk supply while nursing her son, Janelle immediately offered her assistance. She explained, “It’s something that always came really easy for me. I enjoy doing it, and I don’t think it’s weird.”
When faced with criticism from those who expressed discomfort with having their child fed by someone else, the mother of four questioned the reason behind the backlash. She pointed out, “Is it disgusting when you’re drinking cow’s milk? You don’t know where that cow’s been.”
In terms of her sister-in-law, Lisa expressed immense gratitude towards Janelle for her crucial assistance. She candidly admitted, “I let Janelle breastfeed my child to help [him], to give him great nutrients, to keep him from going hungry, and to keep him healthy and happy. I was lucky that I had Janelle.”
As for her husband, Joshua, he takes great pride in his wife’s selfless gesture and enthusiastically shares, “I love it. I think it’s really cool.” He also described the experience as “incredibly natural” and “an amazing thing.”
