Ok, so now it's time for my own silly question in response. What the heck is milk sharing if it isn't boob sharing? I would actually be more opposed to my child drinking from the same cup as another child than I would be to her nursing from another lactating woman. But then I guess I am a crazy woman in the homebirth camp

I know the LLL does not encourage the practice of nursing someone else's child. I would not object, but it would have to be a situation that was more extreme than just I was going out. Maybe if I needed treatment for something and/or my milk was to be affected by something I was required to take. I would also need to really trust the other person and know that they were clean - HIV, drug use, etc.
