Ragnar BengtssonA man in Sweden is attempting to make history by becoming the first man to breastfeed his children.

26 year old Ragnar Bengtsson from Stockholm has begun stimulating his breasts with a pump in an effort to produce breast milk. Bengtsson uses the pump every three hours, even whilst studying at college.

“I’m going to have to pull out the pump during lectures. But really it doesn’t bother me if it makes people uncomfortable. If they have issues with it that’s their problem,” he told The Local.

Bengtsson’s attempt is to be documented by Swedish TV8 who are producing a show called “The Milkman – One Drop at a Time”

“If it works and the milk turns out to have a high nutritional value it could be a real breakthrough,” Bengtsson believes.

“There have been a lot of strong reactions. Some people think it’s completely sick,” he said.
