WHAT IS CROSS-NURSING?
This is a new practice not yet widely accepted. In cases where the mother is not able to (death, disability or disease) breast feed her new born, nursing by another woman can be considered. This woman may be a family member and may offer to nurse on compassionate grounds or may be one who is doing so for making some money.
We have seen that breast milk is produced mainly with suckling reflex, so it is possible to produce more by doubling the suckling. Also a mother feeds her own twins, this is no different.
