Guys Experience Breastfeeding for the First Time
posted by: Guest Blogger
Breastfeeding isn’t for the faint of heart…or breast.
For one long, long day, two men got to experience what it’s like to be a breastfeeding woman. Not the part of attaching a real baby, unfortunately, but the bit about carrying two ever-filling jugs about town.
The experience was made possible with help from MamaBreast, a breastfeeding simulator made by Laerdal. The wearable simulator “allows highly realistic simulation of breastfeeding and breast milk expression.” While typically an educational tool, the $60 device can also be used to foster understanding and empathy with the opposite sex.
Ready to see how the men did? Spoiler alert: They found it tough.
