LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- A new mum has shared a video of her mother breastfeeding her child.
According to her, she had left her child with her mother to run an errand. When the baby became hungry, the grandmother breastfed the grandchild.
The video has however received mixed reactions. While some maintain that it is normal, others stress that it doesn’t sit well with them for another woman to breastfeed a child when the mother is alive and can lactate.
@linda.d.akins commented, “Thank God I married American Man. My mother in-law would never. My own mother knows the kind of daughter she has, so she wouldn’t even try it. That’s my own household because breastfeeding is a bonding and nurturing experience. You people do what’s best for you.
In contrast, @st.licel_cleaner said, “My mother in-law did it to my first son, nothing wrong as long as long as she cleaned the nipple up with warm water and clean baby towel. Nothing is actually coming out from that breast. In support of the post, @nkem_04 added, “My mom did it when my sister’s baby won’t stop crying.
In agreement, another user added, “I did it for my nephew even now that he’s 7, he won’t let the bress be.
Commenting on the video, a man, @onyechechukwu said, “Nobody should chuck brezz in my Children’s mouth if not their mother. Thank you.
