New question: Would you breastfeed somebody elses baby if the mother wasn't there...

If you were babysitting for somebody and she couldn't get back to feed her baby...like she had a car accident or some other emergency...would you breastfeed her baby?
You have no bottles of breastmilk and baby won't take formula.

  • It depends on how the mother would feel about it. If she was someone I was close to and I knew she'd be OK with it I would. Otherwise, the baby would have wait. I think nursing is far to personal of a thing to share with another woman's baby.

  • for some reason i believe WAY back then, it would of been ok like the nanny or someone close breastfeeding one's child but i believe in other cultures or country's its actually common for someone doing so.

    today in this generation, its easily seen as a wrong thing to do, i would do it if im not caught but i wouldnt keep doing it, just maybe that one time lol
