    This has never occurred to me, but I guess so, if their baby was about the same age so the milk was suitable for my baby.

    The only concern would be that my own supply doesn't dwindle, but I guess I could express any missed feeds to keep my own supply up and build up the freezer or donate it.

    Yeah sure. Though as others have said she is better off helping HER baby latch to build supply that is suitable for HER baby.

    I would feed another baby/have my baby fed by another mother if he/she was hungry or being babysat (friends/family).

    Yep.

    I've fed my sisters child, had her feed my child. I've also donated my expressed milk and offered my son to a friend who had forgotten her breastpump

    Babies are far better extractors than pumps. In some countries a new mum is given an infant a few months old to stimulate the boobs as they already know to suck and new bubs are often swapped to those mums ESP if the new mum has sore/cracked nipples.

    I would not ever allow it.

    Many diseases can be contracted through breast milk.

    Nope I wouldn't be comfortable with that. Like SPC I would gladly donate BM, I just wouldn't be comfortable having another woman feed my baby

    Agree, my baby also refused to latch, and I built my supply from expressing exclusively. My baby is reaching 6 months in 2 weeks and never took formula except the first few days in hospital. So it is possible. Even if u allow your friend to bf your bub, she would need your bub at least 8-10 times a day to build up the supply, then what about your supply?
