  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    I'm child free so it's a completely alien experience to me, but what's the general consensus nowadays on kids being breastfed by someone not their mom?

    We know that wet nursing has been happening since at least 2,000 BC, and that it continued as a regular, important, and lifesaving practice until the 20th Century AD. I believe it was used a lot more often in earlier times when many moms were still children themselves when they began having their babies.

    Even in the 1880s-90s, functional infant bottles were not available. Some contraptions were tried, but they were very difficult to keep clean and the infants often became sick and died.

    So it's been the norm throughout history until recently...and is still going on!

    I agree with everything you said. Hence my qualification about "nowadays"

    imo, it's purely a personal decision. I don't think there is any particular consensus by anyone.

    Yes, I know. The only reason I could have the link in the OP was that the terrible, horrible, offensive breast was pixelated out!
