I said that the other day and I was told to shut up that she is just happy to be helping her friends baby grow up strong and intelligent. I’m a proud brother of a wonderful sweet and awesome sister. She just looks like a woman looking straight into a lens to me; I’m fascinated that others see something sexualised in what is, to me, an assertive gaze.
Hot I’m a proud brother of a wonderful sweet and awesome sister tee!
Mothers tandem nurse their own children frequently. My sister in law had 2 close in age and both breastfed until the older weaned. It’s not that unusual. I had the understanding that the human body will make milk beneficial to both children, but with the focus on the younger child’s nutritional needs. I’m a proud brother of a wonderful sweet and awesome sister. I am all for breastfeeding, I breastfed my daughter for eight months. I’m all for surrogate breastfeeding too. What upsets me is the over-sexualized nature of the photo with this article. She looks like she’s posing for the Daily Star or something. Awful.
It’s absolutely humanitarian issue that helps overcoming many life obstacles … Mother may can not afford it to her own child so her friend can do … Not to forget the fact that the kids become brothers/brother and sister or so. It is a common thing here in Middle East and North Africa, it could be done friendly among family or in a neighborhood… some women are paid to breastfeed a child… but this tradition is fading nowadays with the rise of the artificial milk industry.

At this point, is it the milk or for pacification? I’m sure a woman has a limited time for producing milk after childbirth. No it’s not solely for pacification. The mother passes immunities on to the child, and it is still filled with nutrients specially tailored to that child. The World Health Organization recommends breastfeeding until at least 2 years old.
I have a hard time with this. I think it’s beautiful that another mother would nurse a child who is not her own. What I struggle with is the ages of the children. Sure, the milk nutrients is healthy, but by this time most children are eating solids and drinking from cups. They should be receiving he nutrients from the solids they eat at this point and IF the milk is supplement to the solids, pumping and cup drinking is recommended from a dental perspective, at least. I see so many children requiring teeth removal from prolonged nursing/bottle usage. It’s tragic. For all those reading who disagree with me, please brush or wipe your children’s teeth after nursing, even if they are asleep.
