Bizarre: The husband can drink the milk without any effect on the infant. Btw, you just won the weird question of the month award.

No problem, unless..: Unless a mom has too little milk, it doesn't matter at all that somebody else (such as a twin sibling or another person) is drinking some of the milk. The breasts will make more. So, as long as the baby is well-fed and happily growing, Mom is fine to share her breast milk.
