I know a lot of you promote self-weaning; and I really don't want an argument to develop here re: formula/BM - or about EBF being 'good' or 'bad'.
What I want to know is; is 5 years old stretching it just a bit; should a kindergartner still be BF'ing?
AND the biggie is would you (or would you allow someone else to) breastfeed another person's child (*except in extreme child is literally going to starve if not fed something*).
Sorry even if I can say; to each their own to what works for you. I find it beyond bizarre for her to BF other people's kids 'just because'...
And can you BF while preg?? Wow learn something new today!

Having someone else breastfeed your child can also be dangerous. HIV/AIDS and other diseases can pass through breastmilk. Having someone tested would not be enough, you can get a false negative on a test or they could contract something after being tested. It just seems insane to me to give my child someone else's bodily fluid. Its gross. I breastfed both of my boys 14 months I was willing to nurse until age 2 after that I think it would make me uncomfortable.

Blank stare would have been more appropriate to describe how I feel. Yes it's her life and her kid; but I think the parents and she are a bit odd for the whole non-mom boob/not my kid on my boob deal
