Yes. It was fine. Not weird. He doesn't feed quite the same as my daughter. The latch is slightly more "pinchy".. But not painful or anything. Anyway I found it quite bonding in a way but not in a mother child way.. But it was lovely. He fell asleep on the boob like my daughter does he he.

I never have but DS2 has, not really out of necessity but out of curiosity a friend fed him while I was there

I haven't but I would do it for someone else if necessary. I am a little embarrassed to admit that I would not feel comfortable with someone else feeding my bub. Maybe it is a hangover from the creepy scene in The Hand That Rocks The Craddle where Rebecca de Mornay feeds someone elses baby so that the baby won't take the mothers breast.

I donate milk to family who need it, and I would happily breastfeed another baby, but haven't needed to.

I have, and would be ok for mine to be bf by someone else if need be. I know 2 others who have, and one who had a baby bf by someone else.

I'd have no issues feeding someone else's baby if the mum wanted me to. I *think* I'd be happy to have a friend of mine feed my baby if I needed them to.

yes I have fed another child and vice versa. My cousin-in-law has a son a few weeks younger than my DD and when we were down visiting family in Victoria (I was fully BF'ing and didnt take my Medela) I managed to get quite sick. But the meds I needed werent quite BFing safe so I asked her to feed DD for 2 feeds. Didnt honestly occur to me to ask her to express and then feed her (she had 2 under 2) so that I could take the meds and sleep the day/meds off.
No dramas at all. She just said that DD (then 4mths) thought her nipples were funny cos they were a different colour to mine and she kept playing with them.
When they visited us later one (our bubs were 1), they took their eldest to movie world and left their bub with us and asked me to feed. I checked if they would rather EBM or boob and she said that her DS2 doesnt take any bottles so it would have to be a boob. It was fine - but god did he bite! I tick off DD when she bites but felt bad to tick him off.

I think it's actually really lovely of so many of you to be open to the idea. It's a beautiful sentiment I also saw that video of Salma Hayek and thought it was a really wonderful thing she did for a starving baby
