    Default Others people's milk - documentary

    Did anyone else watch this on abc2 over the weekend? It was amazing. A real life look at how different mothers feed their babies from tandem feeds, shared feeding with friends and siblings, donating milk and specifically a man that has been cancer free for 9 years by keeping the cancer at bay from consuming breastmilk!!

    Here is the link for anyone that wants to watch

    I watched it too. It was good, but so much to cram in a short program.
    I would feed another child if they needed it, and if i knew the mother was safe, i'd happily have her feed my child too. My children never liked formula, DS3 would gag if i tried to give him any. If i could have had a friend babysit them (on the extremely rare occasion we could have gone out as a couple!), and breastfeed them we would have leaped at the chance!

    So interesting! Though the woman that wasn't lactating and "breast fed" other kids then said they had a s.exual connection grossed me out.

    Ah yes, that was a bit concerning. For me, there is no se.xual connection to BF.

    Yes!! Wtf? No sexual connection at all. That is exactly what we don't want people to think/feel/say so that breastfeeding in public becomes more accepted.

    I'm just watching it now and am horrified at that lady who said it was a 'sexual connection to the child' and that she produced colostrum even though she'd never had a child herself.

    My grandmother fed another baby in hospital when she had my aunty because the mother was very ill. I feel like it's a lovely nurturing gift to give a child and a mother if they really need it.
    I would definitely feed another baby if it needed it and I would be fine with my sister feeding my babies however would not let a stranger. I feel like I would be too jealous of a stranger.

    I agree! That lady was weird! At the start of the show I was a bit grossed out by the thought of feeding someone elses baby or vice versa but by the end my opinion had changed completely. It made me think about why I was uncomfortable with another persons milk but happy to drink a cup of tea with cows milk. The lady who fed the starving babies in Africa is amazing and a truely wonderful woman.
