Salma Hayek is interviewed on ABC's Nightline in this YouTube video about breastfeeding a baby other than her own in Sierra Leone.
I used to think that "wet nursing" (now referred to as "cross-nursing") was something medieval. One of my students a few years ago grew up in Cuba. I mentioned that I was breastfeeding and he mentioned in the conversation that he was breastfed by another woman because his mom had no milk. At the time, I was shocked. Now I see women sharing their pumped milk with other women in need and not just through some kind of institutionalized milk bank.
Would you nurse someone else's baby?
Would you be okay with someone else nursing your baby?
Hat tip: MomTFH for the link and for the term "cross nursing," which, as she put it, "doesn’t have all the racist and servile baggage that wet nursing does."
