Have you ever heard of “Induced Lactation” or "Adoptive Breastfeeding"?

DEFINITION OF INDUCED LACTATION AND ADOPTIVE BREASTFEEDING: Breastfeeding an adopted baby through induced lactation is possible, but it takes plenty of planning, introspection, and support. Building a breast milk supply when you haven't given birth involves “tricking” your body with cues that tell it to produce milk. It takes 2-3 weeks to build the milk supply.

HOW IS INDUCED LACTATION ACHIEVED: To begin, gently massage your breasts by hand for a few minutes, then use a hospital-grade (multi-user) double electric breast pump for about 10 minutes more. Do this after waking, before going to sleep, and several times throughout the day for your body to begin reacting to the implied “demand” for breast milk.

Females will do this if they are desiring to lactate.

"Induced Lactation" can be done successfully, and is usually done for one of these four reasons that I know of.

1) Adoption of an infant that the adoption mother wants to breast feed

2) To assist a mother that she knows in breast feeding her baby, which mother may have difficulty in producing enough milk or has other physical deficiency's preventing her from properly breastfeeding her baby.

3) A female may be curious just to see if she can do it and to experience what it is like without, or prior to, pregnancy

4) In very rare cases, it is sometimes done as a fetish, or kink, with an adult partner nursing
