What is the most chivalrous way to let your wife know how much you love her?
Flowers? Romantic getaways? Letting your wife breastfeed you?
Strange, even disgusting, as that may sound, the husband of TikToker Jennifer, who uses the handle @twodears, relieved his wife from days of pain and agony by doing just that.
Jennifer revealed the whole story in a TikTok video, which has since received over 11 million views.

With, "I breastfed my husband" instantly seen in an overlay at the start of the video, Jennifer recounted the whole story directly to the camera, all the while holding her beautiful baby girl.
"There are some things in marriage and having babies that you just can’t prepare for, and this is one of them."
Jennifer first revealed that a clogged milk duct, a common occurrence in breastfeeding, was causing pain in her right breast.
This time however, it wasn't merely a clogged milk duct, but mastitis, an infection of the breast tissue, leading to a fever and the need for antibiotics.
But after the antibiotics, as well as epsom salt baths, various supplements and frequent pumping still failed to drain the clog, Jennifer knew more drastic measures needed to be taken.
This led to Jennifer eventually finding an article which recommended her husband suck the clog out himself, an idea Jennifer openly expressed she would never have come to herself."
"Mind you, I never in a million years would have ever considered letting my husband breastfeed off of me."
"Nor has he ever wanted to, I should clarify."
But after two days of what Jennifer described as "pure agony", she finally asked if her husband would be willing.
And while Jennifer's husband warned her that doing so could make him "gag" or “throw up”, he proudly said he would do it for her, leading to them eventually going through with it.
Jennifer didn’t hold back on her mortification at the processes, claiming she had PTSD and even finding herself too embarrassed to continue looking at the camera.
However, Jennifer also revealed that her husband was indeed able to suck out the blockage.
"In the beginning he got a small taste of it and he was like, ‘This is actually really sweet’."
“But then at the end when he unclogged it, he was basically about to gag because it started flowing because the clog was gone, and that was enough. Enough!"
“I feel like we’re bonded for life."
While several TikToker's couldn't help but poke fun at the ordeal in the comments section, a majority commended Jennifer's husband for coming to her rescue, with a number of fathers even stepping forward revealing they had done the same for their wives.
After several TikTokers begged Jennifer to hear her husband's side of the story, she succeeded in getting him to join her in a follow-up video.

This time accompanied by the overlay, "I breastfed for my wife", Jennifer's husband admitted it was a "different kind of experience", but felt the need to do so owing to the amount of pain his wife was in.
"I felt like I was sucking poison out of you."
"All I could think about was your pain and how [the baby] wasn’t getting enough milk and I just wanted to take action on the problem and I did it."
Jennifer then put her husband on the spot, asking, on a scale of 1 to 10, how did her breast milk taste?
Clearly embarrassed by the answer, he initially gave it a 9, resulting in a shocked, disgruntled reaction from Jennifer..
"This led him to quickly change his rating to a 10 out of 10."
"I mean, it was a 10 but I don’t want to admit it was a 10."
When asked if he would do it again, Jennifer's husband answered in the affirmative without one ounce of hesitation, though clarifying only for another clogged milk duct.
TikTokers were charmed and touched by Jennifer's husband, and how lucky Jennifer was to have him.
Jennifer could only agree that she had "a really good husband", calling him a "trouper".
Indeed, another TikToker declared that Jennifer's husband was a "Little Rock Star", something Jennifer certainly agreed with in a subsequent follow up video.
