Jennifer Mulford said she wanted to create an ‘Adult Breastfeeding Relationship’ – and mentioned the idea to her former childhood sweetheart, Brad Leeson, 36.
She told Now44News, ‘It was like a light switched flicked in his head. I could tell from his voice that he was curious and excited,’ she said, before opening up about the first time the pair tried it.
‘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.’
She quit her job to ‘dry’ breastfeed Brad every hour – to ‘fool’ her body into lactating.
She said, ‘’I’ve taken a break from my job because I want to devote everything to making this work.’
Brad, a bodybuilder, hopes to boost his body by their regular breastfeeding sessions.
How ‘Adult Breastfeeding Relationships’ work
People in ‘Adult Breastfeeding Relationships’ – also known as ‘Adult Nursing Relationships’ – are called ‘nursing couples’.
Sometimes, these relationships arise after a couple has had a baby.
In other cases, a woman can artificially induce lactation – by encouraging a partner to ‘dry’ breastfeed regularly until milk flow occurs.
Successful adult nursing relationships depend on a stable and long-term relationship – need to maintain a steady milk flow.
This only works if the woman has previously had a baby – and some couples use drugs such as Domperidone to induce milk flow.
