Guys Experience Breastfeeding for the First Time

posted by:

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.
