Tons were against it. So, my question is: Are you also against blood donation and transfusions? Many responses said "I won't give my baby other peoples bodily fluids." How are the two different? What about organ transplants? And, you would rather feed cow milk instead of human milk?Answer Question
When my son was 4 weeks old I got pneumonia and septicemia. The first 12 hours I had a fever of 104 and was very sick. We didn't want to do anything to risk breastfeeding with my son so one of my friends took him to another friend and she nursed him. After my temp came down, I got to have him in my room and nurse until 9 or 10 at night and then he would go to my friend to nurse. I was going to have to be on IV antibiotics for 3 weeks so they let me go home after a few days and I had the IV antibiotics at home.
I was so lucky I had a friend with a young baby that was willing to nurse my baby. He ended up needing no bottles. So not only would I feed my baby another mother's milk I would let another mother feed my baby.
