Jean-Luc Picard left a comment on one of my previous posts saying that wet nurses were making a come back. I just googled this out of curiosity and it really is happening. Well, not a major 'come back' but it is happening. I won't summarise the TIME magazine article because it is already written so concisely so check it out here.
The crux is that people are becoming more aware of all the benefits a breastfed baby receives but at the same time, women are joining and staying in the work force more than ever so.....this is the way to have their cake and eat it too.
I think I might be OK to feed another baby if it were to help a family member out. I'd really have second thoughts about doing it for other people. And, I don't think I would want to have Aaron attached to anybody else's body. The relationship that develops between the baby and breastfeeder is incredibly intense and I guess I'm just too selfish to share him with somebody else. There's no way that I could convince myself that the other person was just a vending machine.
