I breastfeed my husband to spend more quality time together — our marriage is stronger than ever



Mom-of-three, Rachel Bailey, 30, first breastfed her husband, Alexander, also 30, in 2016 and the couple haven’t looked back since.

While it started as a way of Alexander helping out his wife when she was over-lactating while nursing their kids, the pair found it to be an amazing bonding experience that they believe has made their marriage stronger than ever.
Feeding the family… everyone in the family!

Rachel, from Florida, has always made sure that her babies are fed first before Alexander finishes the remaining milk, and the habit came about as a pure accident.

“When my eldest child, Troy, now seven, was breastfeeding, I went away on a cruise with Alexander,” she said.

“However, I forgot my breast pump and was badly engorged for two days. I was in so much pain and I was scared about getting an infection, so we decided that my husband was going to try drinking the milk to relieve me.

The couple were aware that what they were doing wouldn’t sit well with many, but continued regardless.

“We were nervous about the idea of him breastfeeding from me as we thought it seemed weird, but as soon as we did it, we realized it was perfectly fine,” the mom shared.

“Alexander said that the milk was really different to how he expected it to taste, compared to the normal milk he was used to drinking.”
A nutritional boost for dad

While the milk tasted different, Rachel knew she was giving her hubby a great boost of nutrients as well as spend quality time together.


“We realised there was nothing wrong with me breastfeeding him, and it would actually be good for him as it is so nutritious,” she revealed.

“He didn’t get a cold for two years after he started drinking my milk and so many people said his skin was so much better too.

“He ended up loving the taste of my breast milk and even prefers it to cow’s milk now.”

Despite people’s reactions, Rachel insists there’s nothing kinky about what they’re doing.

“It’s not a kink for us. It started as Alexander just helping me out when I was in pain, but it turned into more of an emotional bonding thing.


“I love breastfeeding him as it allows us to spend quality time together. It’s definitely brought us closer as a couple,” she shared.

How it all started

When she fell pregnant again for the second and third time with her two younger kids, Aria, six, and Matthew, two, she’d begin over-lactating again and Alexander was on hand to gladly help her out.

She would breastfeed her husband at breakfast, lunch and dinner, but as she is now producing less milk, she is only breastfeeding him at night.

She added: “It’s funny because if I eat something spicy, it also gives Alexander gas too.”

“Shortly after giving birth, when I was producing the most milk, Alexander was drinking my milk three to four times a day,” Rachel recalls.


“Obviously the babies are always fed first before it’s his turn. He would spend about five to ten minutes on each boob.

“It’s a bit of a taboo subject, but we wanted to share it because we don’t think it’s bad and we aren’t ashamed. It was an instant relief when Alexander latched on, and it stopped me from being in pain.”

On top of that, it has also created a more special bond between the couple.
What do you think? Post a comment.

“It’s such a nice experience and I am so glad we started doing it. We aren’t embarrassed about it at all,” she said.

“Alexander felt so much more energised when he was drinking my milk and he said that he even felt in a state of medication while he was latched on.


“It was really special and brought us closer than ever before.”

“Police Explain Teargas Use at Lekki Toll Gate During Mohbad’s Candlelit Funeral”



Lagos State Police issued a statement on Friday explaining their use of teargas to disperse a gathering at the Lekki Toll gate on September 21, a day that saw a candlelit funeral procession held in honor of the late singer Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, at Victoria Island, Lagos.

In their statement, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the police spokesman in Lagos State, emphasized that no live ammunition was discharged, and they employed crowd management strategies to handle the unruly crowd, ensuring no injuries or casualties occurred.

Hundeyin went on to address the prevalent misinformation surrounding the incident, particularly regarding the agreement made with the procession organizers. He explained that the police had an arrangement with the organizers to conclude the candlelit procession no later than 8 p.m. at Muri Okunola Park, Victoria Island. Additionally, due to heavy traffic on the Lekki-Epe Expressway, it was agreed that the Lekki Toll Gate would be off-limits.

However, after the procession concluded at Muri Okunola Park with police providing security throughout, some individuals gathered at the Lekki Toll Gate with intentions unrelated to the #justiceforMohbad initiative. This gathering violated the established agreement, prompting the police to engage the procession organizers in persuading the crowd to disperse peacefully.


Despite hours of persuasion and social media messages urging dispersal, the crowd remained defiant, and traffic on the expressway was at a standstill. Given their prior experience with such situations and the potential for chaos, the police decided to use teargas, considering it the least harmful method to disperse the crowd, following the failure of verbal and social media-based persuasion.

The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Mr. Idowu Owohunwa, issued a warning to individuals or groups causing disturbances, stating that they would be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

The police expressed appreciation for the cooperation of the procession organizers and assured both supporters of #justiceforMohbad and Lagos residents that they would prioritize safety and security. The investigation into Mohbad’s death is ongoing, and the police called on the public to avoid creating unnecessary distractions and allow the police to conduct a conclusive and timely investigation.

Hundeyin emphasized that the police have been working closely with support groups for #justiceforMohbad and pledged to maintain this collaboration while keeping the public informed of the investigation’s progress.

Burna Boy’s concert cancellation: low ticket sales cited among the problems



Multi-award-winning Nigerian artist Burna Boy continues to trend on social media as most of his fans talk about the cancellation of his concert that was set to take place in South Africa.

The African Giant, as he is affectionately known, was expected to perform at the FNB Stadium on September 23 in a highly anticipated show.

But as news that the show was been postponed to December, news that it had been cancelled entirely emerged.

Entertainment commentator Phil Mphela revealed that 17 000 tickets were sold for the Burna Boy concert.


“Around 17k tickets were sold for the FNB Stadium concert that was meant to happen this weekend.

“The erroneous 1 500 number was just a Twitter ‘joke/ jab’ that went over many’s heads and became the running number… 17k is still a low number for a stadium capacity.”

He further cited the “inability of the promoters to fulfil their contractual, financial, production and technical obligations; and production vendors had apparently not been paid on time”.

“Management conceded that the agreed production standard needed for the venue size could not be achieved. TicketPro has seized all sales of tickets to the concert,” he said.

While Burna Boy’s name continued to be a hot subject on social media, the singer took to his Instagram account and said: “I was in SA last year, and I had 100 thousand of the most Beautiful South Africans Outside for me, So no dead agenda can Agend. I will see you again real soon South Africa. I * you.”


Last year, the “Ye” hitmaker delivered a stellar performance after headlining the DStv Delicious event.

Despite having an unsuccessful concert in South Africa, Burna Boy made it into the “Hollywood Reporter’s” inaugural Platinum Players power list, which honours 25 acts in music who are on top of the charts and at the top of the game.
