Did you know that men can breastfeed too?

Male lactation in zoology means production of milk from mammary glands in the presence of physiological stimuli connected with nursing infants.

It has been used in literature to describe the phenomenon of male galactorrhea which is a well documented condition in humans.

It’s exceptionally rare, but since men possess mammary glands just like women do, they have the capacity to produce milk. When male lactation happens, it’s usually because of hormonal treatments.
