As parents, we all want the best for our kids. We will go through extreme measures to make sure they’re happy, healthy, and thriving. And actress Kristen Bell really means it. The mom of two recently shared a story of the weird animal milk she bought for her kids when she wanted to stop breastfeeding… and why she kept it as a reminder of when to pull back.
Recently, Kristen and her husband Dax Shepard were guests on The Drew Barrymore Show and we’re guessing no one was ready for the story she was about to share with the world. She’s always been hilarious and candid. Even if it gets her a lot of pushbacks – like the time she shared her kids’ bathing schedule.
“Right after we had the kids and I was going to stop breastfeeding,” Bell shared, “and I had read …” she said before pausing, covering her eyes with her hands and admitting that she “can’t even look at you when I say this.”
“… I read that camel milk was really similar to breastmilk and then I bought a bag of dehydrated camel milk online. And it got there, I opened it up and I was like ‘What are you doing?’” she continued before Dax jumped in to emphasize that she bought camel milk … online.
Kristen said that she didn’t end up giving her kids the powdered milk, instead putting it away on the shelf … just in case and as a “reminder of how far you could go. And when you need to rein it in.”
According to WebMD, camel milk is similar to human breast milk stating, “Camel milk is the closest natural substance to a human mother’s milk. Just like breast milk protects newborn babies from various health issues, camel milk can provide a number of health benefits.”
This isn’t the first time Kristen has brought up camel milk, surprisingly. During an interview with Woman’s Health Magazine in 2019, camel milk was mentioned as part of Kristen’s mental health regimen, which also includes “Yamuna Balls, resistance bands, gliding discs, foam rollers, KeVita drinks, and Moon Juice Dust.” But perhaps she realized she does more than enough for her kids, who are happy and healthy.
