    I haven't but would have no problem doing so ...

    ... but I would be unlikely to offer for fear of offending, as I would expect most people to think such a suggestion was really intrusive.

    ----------------

    Conversely, if my bub needed the milk I would have no problems with another mother (whom I knew) feeding her, but would be unlikely to ask again due to risk of offending.

    ===============

    So unless the other party was forthcoming with the suggestion, or we became mind-readers, it would be unlikely to eventuate.

    ---------------------------

    I do remember an occasion long ago when I was hollidaying with two other couples. One of the others (who was very health conscious) was tandem breastfeeding her bub and toddler, and was constantly complaining about oversupply. I was stuggling to feed my bub and had to comp-feed due to undersupply. Our outing to the beach was delayed because I had to feed my bub, then make up a bottle for her comp-feed when I had nothing left in me. I felt so embarrassed delaying everyone and remember thinking it would be so much easier if the other mother (complaining of discomfort due to oversupply - even after her bub had finished) could finish off feeding my bub then it would be done much quicker than fussing with bottles. Conversely later in the evening, her bub swas taking a long time feeding and her toddler was getting impatient waiting for his turn. He kept distracting the baby making the situation worse. I tried to distract the toddler and keep him occupied to give mum&bub the space and time to feed, but remember thinking it would've been so much easier to keep him occupied if I had just fed him instead of trying to play games with him. He could smell my milk as was pulling at my clothes as well. (My bub had fed earlier and was already asleep for the night, so it wouldn't have been depriving my bub at all.)

    But due to risk of offending the other mother, I did not suggest either in the above situations. (The second wasn't really appropriate anyway since their family was on a strict low-GI diet with which I wasn't complying.)

    I'd do it for someone if they wanted me too and I'd be happy for a close friend/ family to feed DS if I couldn't.
    I had the overwhelming urge to feed a friend's when she forgot formula but I would never offer if someone didn't ask me

    I would, only if I knew the person and baby very well and was comfortable with it.

    However I would have a problem with someone else breastfeeding my child.

    I read this and had to tell myself not to respond in case I offended anyone because I know how sensitive people are when it comes to breast feeding. In the end I couldn't help myself because as much as I tried to keep quiet I just want to scream 'please do not ever breast feed someone else baby without asking!'

    If I found out someone else had breast fed my baby I would be beyond furious! And if they did it and tried to hide it then I would take extreme action I would be that angry and offended. How do I know you are healthy? How do I know you are not carrying a disease? These are other people's bodily fluids !! I am also sure that if you did this without permission It could constitute an offense such as assault - if a mother wanted to take it that far.
