Apparently breast milk tastes like.......

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

Apparently breast milk tastes like.......

Carrot! Of all things! I've asked Koala several times and this is his consistent response. What do your toddlers say, for those bfing?

Interesting! It's never occurred to me to ask! I remember on Friends they say it tastes like cantaloupe juice.

Just asked Greta as she's nursing right now, she said "mum mums tastes of cuddles and mama"
Love her.

Ice cream. It's always been ice cream. I'm assuming vanilla but of course I could be wrong, it could be chocolate. :)

Robyn, awwwwwwwww. :D
FT, depends on what you've been eating, right? ;)
Saurus calls it juice, which is probably a high compliment coming from someone who's usually only allowed to have water. (Won't drink it anymore unless it's from a bottle he's stolen off the baby, though. :( Boo.)
Saurus (April 2012) wants to open all the cupboards to see the pipes.
Zilla (December 2013) is unstoppable. And really likes pizza.
Turtle (November 2015) isn't cute yet, but he's working on it.
And Mia and Oreo are my emotional support cats.

I'd always heard other kids say bm tastes like icecream or chocolate. Makes sense, they think it tastes like the sweetest, creamy thing they have eaten.

Mkm, do you think the taste changes lots or is meerkat just very creative?

That's lovely, Robyn.
Tigerle's adamant that it tastes like nothing but breast milk & that it's very very very good. :D

I asked P and he said "Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh?" As he does when he doesn't know how to answer and wants me to prompt him. So I said "Cookies? Ice cream?" And he said "Nooo. Mio." Yep, milk tastes like milk.

That's interesting! I'm guessing he likes oranges then.

SJ, I think P will be an engineer with such a matter of fact response like that.

I've got another one who says it tastes like milk. I asked him and he pretty much just looked at me like "What kind of crazy question is that?" so I tried to prompt by asking if it tasted like some kind of food and he shook his head no, then said "Booba!" (His word for milk/nursing.)

I wonder if he'll have more creative answers as he gets older/has more vocabulary.
