Breastfeeding is always a hot topic. Should mums breastfeed or use cows milk? Should they be allowed to feed their child in a public place?
But another question has arisen about whether a mum should be allowed to breastfeed a baby that’s not their own.
Wilson found a post in a mum’s group where a woman talks about how she and her sister are both breastfeeding children aged under one — and they step in and breastfeed each other’s babies if needed.
And while their husbands are okay with it, their dad was absolutely horrified.
“Milk is milk, we’re both healthy. I don’t see why milk from a cow is more normal than milk from a human,” the woman said.
But it brought up the question about whether others would consider this appropriate.
Fahd, a mother of two young boys, said she doesn’t find anything wrong with it although she would draw the line at a stranger physically breastfeeding her children.
“If it’s your sister, you’re both healthy and everything’s fine, I don’t think there is anything wrong with it at all,” Fahd says.
