Shared bond: Jessica says she has breastfed her friend's child since he was 7 months old The post, which has been liked almost 500 times, received mixed reaction from readers. One mother wrote: "This is amazing!! If only this was more widely accepted us mums wouldn't have such a hard time doing things or working. "I'm lucky enough to be able to feed my son while he is in childcare but lots of people cannot. What a different world it would be if we went back to older more natural ways." Another added: "Wet nurse. As long as her friend is ok with it, then it's perfectly fine. Just like having twins.... I bet she is using mad calories nursing two!!! "Honestly, not any different than donating. In fact, both are getting better benefits of the milk because it's not frozen or altered in any way. 100% fresh." One mum admitted: "I would be so up set if some one feed my babies I am there mum and I would feel so wrong to feed some one else baby (sic)." Another user wrote: "Yeah I don't know how I feel about this. I truly believe it is a sacred bond that should only be shared by mother and baby. "I feel breastfeeding someone else's baby is totally over stepping. Unless they've asked you to. Then go for your life. Still not sure about it though." Bond: Many mum's said breastfeeding is special between you and your baby alone Following the deluge of comments, Jessica told blog author Louise : "Breastfeeding my friend's son came naturally to me. "I started babysitting him when he was 5 months old and the first time she dropped him off to me I asked permission to nurse him, since I was already nursing my 3 month old. "She responded with an enthusiastic yes, because he was having issues with the formula his previous sitter had been giving him. "My friend struggled with breastfeeding in the beginning and succeeded for 9 months. She was always very happy that her son had the nutrition and comfort he needed while she was working. "Being able to breastfeed her little boy has created a special bond between us all, a bond I will always cherish."
