  • Yes, if the child was in need, I would do whatever I could to help.

  • Yes, I would if the child was an infant. If it's a 2 yr old or older, I don't know, they would have to be really, really starving and have no other food or drink available.

  • Hell no. That's what formula's for. I just feel like breasts and breastmilk is too personal to use on someone else's child. Idk, it's just really weird to me.

  • Yes, I would. If the baby or child needed it and I could give it, I would have to or have it on my conscience for the rest of my life. I would also donate milk if there were a drop off point near where I live.

  • In an emergency situation, I don't see most moms saying no.

    If it was just "hey feed my kid" then No.

  • if the baby was starving and there was no other way then yea...i mean if the world was ending or something drastic then i guess they really couldn't just run to the store and get some formula...lol...
