Breastfeeding mothers know all the bonds and benefits provided from nursing their babies in the early years of life- but this story will definitely turn some heads about what breast milk can do for the body.
Over 20 years since giving birth to a baby, Jennifer Mulford from Atlanta wanted to start a new breast-feeding relationship, but with an adult instead of a baby.
“I used dating sites, put messages on ABR forums and even put an advert on Craigslist, but I drew a blank. I started to think I’d never get to try adult breastfeeding,” Jennifer says.
Finally, one night she connected with an old boyfriend from school and when she brought up the idea she knew she had a match.
“It was like a light switched flicked in his head. I could tell from his voice that he was curious and excited," Jennifer said.
From that moment Brad and Jennifer became more than friends.
"At that moment I knew that I had a partner for life… we both wanted the same thing out of the relationship – a magical bond that only breastfeeding can achieve," Jennifer said.
Since she has not recently given birth to a baby, she needs to induce lactation through dry feeding, using a breast pump and taking herbs to stimulate her body into providing milk again.
In order to bring her milk in Jennifer has to latch Brad or use a breast pump every 2 hours to encourage her body to start producing again. She has even set an alarm in the middle of the night, so that she doesn't miss a session. Because of this regimented scheduled she has taken a leave of absence from her work as a bartender to devote the time to her Adult Breastfeeding Relationship.
36-year-old Brad looks forward to the additional nutrition that Jennifer's milk will provide. As a self-proclaimed gym buff, Brad is excited about the additional benefits he will receive from the breast milk.
“He is a real alpha male but behind closed doors this relationship lets him put his guard down, be submissive and allow himself to be loved 100 per cent," Jennifer says.
The couple hopes to get married one day, and potentially have more children together. Both already have kids from previous relationships.
“We are content with what we’ve got, but I can’t wait to be Mrs. Leeson one day,” said Jennifer.
Jennifer breastfed her own daughter, now 20, for 8 months.
