Hey all, I have a 15 month old daughter who stil breastfeeds at LEAST 3 times a day plus at night; I just recently started watching two of my nephews, ones 2 1/2 and the other is 7 months old. The 7 month old is breastfed and his mother tried pumping, but just wasn't getting enough out, so I do have formula on hand but my sister and I had discussed wetnursing. Turns out, we're both okay with it, so that's what I've been doing!
I'm just wondering how everyone feels on the topic, I must admit, it's a little strange to look down and not see my daughter there, but it comforts my nephew, gives him good nutrition and my daughter thinks it is so funny when they both nurse at the same time! I by no means find it gross, unsettling or wrong. It makes my day go by smoother and makes him happier. What's your take on this situation???
