Family dynamics can be complicated, but one Reddit user found herself entangled in a sticky situation that took the term “awkward” to a whole new level. The story unfolded on a popular subreddit, leaving readers in disbelief at the bizarre sequence of actions from a certain family member. Brace yourselves because this story is really, really strange…
He’s Into What?!
Our protagonist, Jane, a young woman with a seven-month-old baby, recently took to the internet seeking advice about the actions of her father-in-law.
Her FIL Has a Peculiar Fascination
Her father-in-law has a peculiar fascination with her breastfeeding practice. Yes, you heard that right.
It Began Innocently Enough
It began innocently enough when Jane decided to get creative with her pumped breast milk surplus.
She had found a recipe online that used her breastmilk to make ice pops for the baby.
Sharing Her Interesting Creation
She shared her interesting creation in the family group chat, but her father-in-law took the message in a very different and uncomfortable direction.
A Creepy Message
Her father-in-law responded with a very weird message with very suggestive undertones, proclaiming, “I’d love to try one of those,” alongside some heart emojis.
Jane’s Bold Response
Unsettled by this comment, Jane immediately called him out, exclaiming, “What, they’re made from breast milk!”
Her father-in-law claimed he hadn’t noticed the caption. Yikes! You would think that the story ends here, but…
Mom’s Baking Feat
Fast forward to a recent baking adventure where our resourceful mother whipped up some muffins for her baby to help his transition from nursing to solid food.
There’s More to This Story…
Following a recipe that called for half a cup of breast milk, she made the muffins and left them to cool in the kitchen.
Who decided to make an unannounced visit? Her father-in-law himself.
For the Baby Only
Amidst their exchange, Jane explicitly informed her father-in-law that the muffins were meant for her baby, explaining that they contained fruit, flour, and, you guessed it, breast milk.
A Missing Muffin
Shockingly, upon Jane’s return to the room after a brief absence, she discovered that one of the muffins had vanished. The culprit? Her father-in-law!
Kick Him Out!
Horrified and disgusted, she confronted him about his behavior, expressing outrage at his consumption of the muffin intended for her infant son.
To her astonishment, her father-in-law defended himself, jokingly claiming that “breast milk is vegan” (despite no one in the family being vegan).
Jane, understandably furious, labeled him a “creepy pervert” and demanded he leave her home immediately.
A shocking update revealed that her father-in-law’s unsettling behavior might extend beyond this bizarre incident.
A History of This Fascination
Jane, determined to uncover the truth, sought counsel from her mother-in-law.
What she discovered left her speechless.
As it turns out, her father-in-law has always exhibited an abnormal interest in breastmilk.
Her mother-in-law admitted that she had only breastfed her own son for four months and was always behind closed doors when doing so.
Intrusive at Work
Furthermore, it was uncovered that her father-in-law was even forced to change jobs after a woman complained about his intrusive and unwanted behavior toward her while she was pumping in a designated space at his previous workplace.
No Longer Invited
Armed with this shocking revelation, Jane took a firm stand, declaring that her father-in-law was no longer welcome around her or her child.
She even requested he returns the key to their house, concerned about the potential tampering and contamination of her breast milk.
Hard to Look Him in the Eye
After learning about the situation, her husband can no longer look his father in the eye.
Redditors immediately jumped in to give their two cents.
One user commented, “Yeah, this is completely normal and also a way to get nutrients into babies post-weaning. It’s not insane at all and quite normal.”
However, most comments were not about her father-in-law’s creepy behavior. Instead, most people wanted to debate whether cooking with breast milk was strange or not.
In the end, Redditors were shocked at the audacity of Jane’s father-in-law’s actions, and most people recommended she steer clear of him for a while.
