No. There is no need. We aren't a third world country. If I had a lot of milk, I would probably donate it to a milk bank because I think they screen it and make sure its ok. But no, personally I wouldn't.

I would if needed. I have actually baby sat a 4 month old that was screaming and I did wish I could have breastfeed him, I knew it would settle him and he was getting wind from his formula but felt to weird asking sil. It really felt like a nature thing to do though at the time...

Yes I would if needed, I don't see the big deal tbh.

Probably not, unless it was some kind of emergency situation. I would happily donate expressed milk, but for me the experience of breastfeeding was a private bonding thing between me & my baby. I think I would feel weird about having that with someone else's baby or vice versa, because of the intimate element of it for me. I wouldn't want to take that experience away from someone else either, even if they were bottle feeding ebm they could still achieve that bonding experience with their baby. That's me anyway.

Yep for sure - as long as the mum wanted it. But I probably wouldn't let someone else breastfeed my child unless it was an emergency and it was someone I knew very very well.

Yes. And I have. I breastfed my aunts son when she had minor surgery as he refused a bottle and she couldn't feed for 12 hours.

Yep totally fine with me, my sister milked me like a cow when she was expressing for her Bub as she couldn't feed directly
