Today GMA my favorite morning news show aired a story that really struck a nerve.

Its about these two mothers that breast feed each others children. I have absolutely NOTHING against breast feeding but, feeding some one else's child when the mom is perfectly healthy and not any relation just seems odd to me. If you want to read the entire article and see the entire story that was on GMA click this link. Let me know what you think, and if you would ever consider doing this.

I've actually read about women who do this. The first time I'd even heard of such a thing the women weren't siblings rather they babysat for one another while they went to work (I can dig around and find it if you'd like).

My sister has a litte girl 4 months younger than Annabel (who is 1 year now) and she's been here before. We both breastfeed and I recall looking at my niece thinking, "I could nurse her if I needed to" but I wouldn't want to and moreso, I wouldn't want my sister coming near my daughter with her breasts.

Nursing is my time to bond with my child. Yes it's true there are health benefits and it's great for your child but it's also about that time for you two together. I'd be upset if someone else shared that time that I feel (perhaps selfishly) is mine.

Thanks for visiting my blog ;) It's nice to meet you!

Thank you for stopping by my blog as well. Yeah, this is a weird thing that I think these women are trying to force on us as perfectly normal. I don't think it is, not if both mothers are healthy and capable, and not related. If I had a sister, I could MAYBE see myself nursing her child, BUT ONLY if something terrible had happened to her where she couldn't, but other than that, I with you on this one. I guess, I'm selfish too. Thanks again for stopping by

Hmmm...I wouldn't want to pre-judge but personally, I'd feel a bit weird. Breastfeeding was a very intimate thing between my baby and I and I can't imagining doing it for someone elses child nor would I want my baby sucking on someone elses boob!
