now that i was reading about breat leaking...I wonder...What does B--t Milk tastes like??...ok, maybe I am too curious..but has anyone ever tried it before?? Is it like formula?

Breastmilk is very sweet. It's hard to describe. Formula tastes awful.

ive tried my b___st milk before, to me it tastes like whole milk mixed with sugar added. my friends husband says his wifes b___st milk tastes like cantelope juice (sweet), i guess its different for everyone.

I have been told by many people that it tastes like melted whip cream. I am an RN in the Neonatal ICU and work with a lot of breasfeeding moms and have heard this for years.

It tastes different to everyone, because it's never the same: human milk's composition changes to adapt to the baby's nutritional needs!!! It does have lower fat and higher sugar contents than cows milk though, so it'd taste more like 1% with sugar, but smelling better.

The doc told me each woman's b___st milk will change also with what she eats. She said that we pa__s our food along to the baby, but of course in dilluted amounts. Sometimes that influences the taste.

Breast milk tastes very sweet. Formula tastes YUCKO. I can't eat Cheerios anymore because, oddly, they smell like formula. GROSS! :)
