  • The only way I could do that is if there was an emergency and the child was left in my care and only nursed. I dont think I could do that just for the heck of it or something.

  • Sure, but only if it was necessary, like if she was in the hospital and couldn't nurse, or if she died.

  • Ive answered this before but here it is again. Yes, in an emergency, absolutely. My Best Friend saved my sons life. I became critcally ill 3 weeks after he was born. He would not take a bottle from anyone regardless what it had in it. My BFF weaned her oldest who was only nursing at night and tandem nursed my son and hers (3 weeks older) for a month. I have always been so grateful she stepped in.

  • My bff did for our son. I had forgotten his milk in the cooler bag at home and we were a 30 min drive away from her home, so i had to run back to get it for her. He ended up having a righteous fit so she hooked him up with some of her yummies! But yes i would do it as well :)
