    No way. Wish I could say yes, but would not feel comfortable with this at all. And I also would not want to breast feed someone else's baby

    Default Someone breastfeeding your bub? What do you think?

    My first reaction (and I know this is probably not PC): low supply? Get a breast pump.

    If it was a very close friend/family and my own supply was well established so there is no risk that lost feeding time would effect my supply.... I'd maybe consider it....

    I can barely stomach the thought of feeding my own babies.

    I have let someone else feed my kid, it was an easy solution to driving all the way home to get more formula. She's my kids cousin and I have known her for years. It wasn't weird at all.

    She also fed another of her cousins who's mother couldn't get him to latch, her full supply and experience was enough to get him going, the mother then had a much easier time.

    Only in an emergency! Like if I wasn't there and DD was starving (she doesn't take a bottle)

    Not a 'random mummy' or 'random child' but yes, if I knew them (ie family, friends)

    I really wish I could say yes, because I'm very pro b/f....but if I'm honest, no I don't think I'd be comfortable.
