“I don’t get it, why is your buddy nursing your baby?” one user commented. You may drink and eat at the same time.” Grace followed up with an explanatory video, which has received over 122,000 views.

She mentioned that her buddy has a 7-month-old kid who is away for the weekend.

She let her milk him to help his immune system and to ease her, she wrote. It is perfectly OK to drink and breastfeed; if you are sober enough to drive, you may nurse.

She added that she trusts her friend with her kid since she breastfeeds her own.

Users on TikTok were divided over how they felt about the issue.

“No, my kid is more important than beverages,” one person claimed, while another added, “I would never want anybody else to feed my baby.” “I guess I’m a jealous mother.”

“When they say it takes a village… this is what they mean,” one more forgiving mom commented. “This is the most lovely gesture I’ve ever seen,” said another.

“Wow I’m amazed how many people support this, not sure I’d be interested but fair enough!” one astonished reader commented.

Meanwhile, according to a recent American Academy of Pediatrics poll of 650 moms, more than half were unconcerned about the safety of exchanging breast milk.

The AAP, on the other hand, does not recommend utilizing informal shared breast milk, noting the hazards of disease transmission as well as potentially exposing a newborn to medicines, alcohol, narcotics, or other pollutants. According to AAP experts, women should only utilize donor milk from a recognized milk bank to supplement their own breast milk.

According to Nikita Sood, a researcher at Cohen Children’s Medical Center/Northwell Health in New York, “informal milk sharing is becoming increasingly common and prevalent. As a result, it is critical that physicians become conscious of this practice and its related hazards in order to educate patients and tackle this developing problem.”
