So last Friday night while I was carving and building a cake, I received a random text from one of my friends asking if I could feed a strangers baby.
Was there ever a question? The baby’s mother was having surgery, and the baby is exclusively breastfed and refused a bottle. When the baby arrived, you could tell she was hungry and exhausted and just needed some milk.
I did what I hope any person would do for my child in a time of despair. I fed a strangers baby. I was so surprised by just how many people thought it was weird, or unnatural. They are boobs; they are meant to feed babies.
Also, in case anyone forgot, they are mine, so I’m fairly certain I choose what happens with them. Regardless, I took an amazing photo tandem nursing these two babies together, and it shows that hungry babies don’t care, they just need to be fed.
