Swedish Father Wanna Breastfeed Kids Himself
It will be interesting to know if Ragnar Bengtsson can succeed.
A MAN is taking part in a bizarre experiment in an attempt to breastfeed his future kids.
University student Ragnar Bengtsson, 26, will stimulate his nipples with a breast pump every three hours.
And he hopes that by December he will start to produce milk.
Bengtsson, from Stockholm, Sweden, said: “Anything that doesn’t do any harm is worth trying.
“If it works it could prove very important for men’s ability to get closer to their children at an early stage.
“If the milk turns out to have a high nutritional value it could be a real breakthrough. But some people think it’s completely sick.”
Professor Sigbritt Werner, of Stockholm’s Karolinska Institutet, said it could be possible for him to produce “a drop or two” in three or four months. Bengtsson already has a son of two but he will not take part in the experiment.
