Mom Takes A Photo Breastfeeding. But Look Closely At The Baby Boy, This Is Going Viral!

Meg Nagle openly discusses everything that relates to breastfeeding on her blog, The Milk Meg. Whether it’s posts about ways to pump more milk or getting through the holidays with a breastfeeding infant, there’s information breastfeeding mamas have probably had thoughts about.
The conversation also continues on her Facebook group of the same name where she not only shares constant updates, but also posts many photos of her breastfeeding her little one.
However, the mom of three, who has no problem breastfeeding wherever she is, recently gained international attention for one of the photos of her breastfeeding her sister’s child.
“My gorgeous little nephew! While my sister was at work today I tried to give him a bottle of her expressed milk a few times (which he wouldn’t take).
The post received an overwhelming amount of support from moms everywhere, some of whom spoke about their own experiences with wet nursing.
Many women rose to her defense and stood by her decision with supportive comments. But, as expected, some weren’t too thrilled with the idea of a woman breastfeeding another mom’s baby, although Nagle wrote on Facebook that she removes comments that are “not supportive.”
Nagle encourages moms everywhere to get more informed about wet nursing.
“Many people are not aware of how common this is around the world and how common it was throughout history. This is part of the reason as to why I feel it’s important to talk about. Some people worry about safety,” she told LittleThings. “It is very important that women make informed decisions around milk sharing and wet nursing. Eats On Feets and Human Milk 4 Human Babies has some great resources and information for women to see the risks and benefits of this. There are very clear guidelines available on what can pass through breast milk so women can make informed choices on how to go about feeding their babies.”
Donor breast milk can be beneficial for parents who can’t offer their own. But a stranger’s milk can also be harmful if the person has an infection or a disease.
