Are you talking about from me on the other thread? I didn't mean to be nasty to you.
I voted yes, if it were necessary I would breastfeed any hungry child. On the other hand though I have to say that when it happened to me I was surprised at how upset and uncomfortable I was. Th e situation was when my very good friend came for my ds2's birth and stayed for 2 weeks after, she is older with adult children so no bm, and she would put my ds2 to her breast at every opportunity she got openly saying that she missed bf so much. It really upset postpartum me but I felt too uncomfortable and freaked out to say anything but the thoughts I was having were that I needed the baby to nurse to establish supply, and he was a sleepy baby so I didn't want him wasting his energy nursing fruitlessly (or milklessly) I never did talk to her about it and it has never happened since, I became very baby possessive! I don't really think it's the sort of question that can have a straight yes/no answer, like so much else in life it can depend on the situation.
In an emergency situation, yes, without hesitation.
In an non-emergency situation, yes, if I knew the child's mama would not object.
