Might be a good money making opportunity for some MDC Moms <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> ($1000/week...not too shabby!)<br><br><a href="http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/18313552/" target="_blank">http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/18313552/</a><br><br>
"It's a practice of days gone by, but in some circles the job is making a comeback. A wet nurse is a woman who breastfeeds someone else's baby. Could it be this bonding time between mom and baby is being increasingly outsourced? A Los Angeles area staffing agency says yes. Certified Household Staffing reports an increase in requests for wet nurses, despite a price tag that starts at a $1,000 a week.<br><br>
So why are more women turning to another woman to supply their babies with what's best from the breast? With its benefits well documented, breastfeeding is on the rise in the U.S. But so are the factors that could prevent a woman from nursing her own newborn, including jobs and being on medication. Even implants can be a barrier. And it's not just women. Men who adopt babies also seek out wet nurses for their newborns."
