After giving birth, mums can do incredible things, like shooting milk out of their armpits.
That’s the case for one mum who showed off the trick on her TikTok. The mum-of-three, who goes by @ollieoooop on the video-sharing platform.
The breastfeeding mum from Minnesota also gave a brief explanation for why this occurs.
She said mums can experience ‘pitties’ — lumps or swelling that can develop in the armpits when breast tissue is filled with breast milk. So when she squeezes the area, the liquid is then able to come out. Just in case the secretion wasn’t obvious, the mum also slowed it down in the video to give viewers a good look.
The mum shared her video in response who asks viewers to share a thing their body does that other people’s bodies do not do.
The mum said in her video: “I’m about to expose myself. Please be nice to me. Basically, you have breast tissue in your armpits and when you get engorged, sometimes that tissue swells. However, I am the only instance that I know of or that I can find of this specific thing that happens to my body. I can shoot milk out of my armpit. And if it wasn’t disgusting enough just to hear it, I’m going to prove it. If you or someone you know can do this, please duet this because I can’t be the only one. Please tell me I’m not the only one who could do this.”
More than 191,000 viewers were fascinated by the discovery, while some mums revealed they experienced the same.
While the lumps may be painful, they are harmless and should go away on their own.
