I BF'd my granddaughter...

Here's a little bit of my story:

My son and his girlfriend/baby mama split up when she was pregnant with their second daughter. The girlfriend went into depression and started abusing their 5 yo. Needless to say, my son obtained custody. GF was upset and stopped having anything to do with their kids. She didn't even pay CS. My son was on his own with his girls. My son was raised knowing how BF'ing is important in our family.

Coincidentally, I had my dd a month after my granddaughter was born. I was nursing her. My son was going to be struggling financially as it is, and I offered my help and told him I could pump and give feedings. She also wasn't responding well to formula.

And here we are almost a year later. My son is very grateful for what I did for his baby and I feel like I'll have a great bond with my grand baby. :)

I guess I'm posting to ask...do you find situations like this over the top/weird? Also any questions are welcome!

Weird? Yes.
But I don't care. Breast milk is best. Your son is awesome for having an open mind.

I think that is wonderful. Sure it's different, but you did what was best WITH parental consent. Kudos to you and your son.

If its not weird to your son, then its not weird. If you did it without his permission or knowledge, then it would be downright perverse.
But, he knew, he concened, all is good :) you did a sweet thing and I'm glad he appreciates it.
