Reader Poll

I read a hilarious, but thought provoking post on Mama M.'s blog that got me to thinking. I also found this inspiring article about the same topic.

How do you feel about it? Would you nurse a baby that wasn't your own? If so, would you actually take it to your breast or pump and donate milk?

I feel if the circumstances were right, I would have no problem nursing a child that wasn't my own. If I have the supply and a baby is in need, then who am I to say no to that.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

I wouldn't have a problem pumping and donating at all! I don't think that I could ACTUALLY nurse a baby (with the exception of Kara's maybe...) because the bonding that happens would be too much for me to then hand them back over to their mother. Good question though!

I had a dream once that I was nursing a baby, years after I had my own children. Considering that I never even nursed my own, do you think I may have had latent desires to breastfeed?

Since I have never breastfed, I don't think my opinion would carry much weight.

I think I could pump and donate... not so much actually nurse someone elses baby. Just don't think I could do it.
