Is it normal for someone to want to taste breast milk?

My husband wants to taste my breast milk. Is this okay?
Submitted by American Baby Team

It's natural for your husband to be curious about your breast milk and fine to let him taste it. Most people are surprised by how sweet breast milk is compared to the cow's milk they're used to drinking. How he tries it is up to you -- it can be directly from your breast, as part of lovemaking, or he can try some of the milk you've pumped for your baby. Older siblings may also become curious about the milk they once enjoyed as babies, and if you're okay letting them have a taste, it's fine to go right ahead.
