Here's a really awful piece of "news" on cross-nursing. The worst part is that it comes up at the top of AOL's homepage today with a "BREASTFEEDING GONE TOO FAR!" title - no doubt it will get a lot of readers.
Please add your comments if you're comfortable doing so.
|Surprisingly, the most ardent supporters of nursing, The La Leche League is firmly opposed to wet nurses or cross-nursing. According to their website:
A Leader shall not ever suggest an informal milk-donation arrangement, including wet-nursing or cross-nursing. If a mother wishes to discuss these options, the Leader's role is to provide information about the risks and benefits so that the mother can make her own informed decision based on her situation.
I don't get how they can say LLL is 'firmly opposed' from that quote. It is really puzzling.
