Re: Wetnurse - Opinions

I'm all about wetnursing, even though the opportunity has never come up! I would have no problem nursing another baby or having mine nursed if there was an issue.

Yup to this. It wasn't weird at all. For either of us.

Re: Wetnurse - Opinions

I have had to suppress the urge to 'whip it out' when watching my friend & SIL's kids. But, I had never discussed it with them, so kept it to myself. My DH would feel weird about it (for sure), but a dear friend & I have already agreed to nurse the other's child to a year, if something awful were to happen to either of us. That brings me peace of mind, as I have never used formula & wouldn't want that for my child. I think it's harder to think of actively (for non-emergency situations) nursing another child, as that isn't a part of our current culture! It would be great to be able to have a date with DH & not have to worry about pumping, bottles, etc!
