    If it was a matter of life or death, definitely, but honestly who wouldnt in those circumstances. I would not feel comfortable letting somebody else feed my child, but thats because I know my child would happily down some formula. I certainly dont have a problem with what others choose to do, not really my business anyway.

    Those that have breastfed a child other than your own, did the latch feel different? How fast did the baby adjust to the new nipple and flow and hold?

    Yeah I'd do it and I wouldn't have an issue with someone else feeding my babies.

    Yes I sure would. I also wouldn't have a problem with someone else feeding my babies if need be.

    I once saw on TV Salma Hayek (actress) breastfeed an African orphane. My first reaction yuck how can she do that but I am totally in awed of her ability to do so.

    Not under normal circumstances but if a friend was sick or something and their baby wouldn't take a bottle I would.

    I would really appreciate someone doing this for my bub if needed as well.

    I fed an older bub so 5-6mths so he knew what he was doing when it came to feeding. I let him lead. He definitely didn't like the taste of my milk but drank some to ward off hunger/thirst. He kept pulling off and making faces at me. It didn't help that I'm brown all over and physically very different from mum.

    wifey of hubby who is always away. mother of two girls who are always amusing.
