My parents threw me out of their house for allegedly having an affair with a man I was working for. Mr X was 12 years older than me, 11 years 7 months and 1 day to be precise. I was working for him to meet my lavish expenses, but then fell for him. A handsome man, he was. He allowed me to stay at his place because apparently "I have nowhere to go sir. I'll do whatever you say and I won't even take my salary. Please, sir. Let me stay! I was beautiful physically, slim waist, firm breasts, strong thighs, but so ugly in my mind. Though I was just 19, and not lactating, X would still latch onto my nipples and kept sucking them for no rhyme or reason.
A t the weekend, GMTV presenter and mother of one Kate Garraway admitted that she used to think that feeding other women's babies sounded pretty strange; "a bit icky", was the way she would have described it. But making a Channel 4 documentary on the subject, and meeting women in the UK and US who had fed other women's offspring, she was prompted to rethink the entire debate. She continued to say that it was, in fact, "bonkers" to feel that letting your baby ingest another woman's milk is beyond the pale, while being happy to let that same baby ingest cow's milk - "which is what formula milk is". But many people still feel that babies receiving sustenance from any woman other than their mother is deeply worrying and suspect. Among those who have commented on the subject online over the past few days are a number of people who have pronounced themselves "uncomfortable" at the notion. One mother I spoke to told me she felt "repulsed" at the idea of giving her milk to another baby, or having her baby fed with what is, after all, another woman's bodily fluid. Others feel that it could be psychologically undermining. If you find it difficult, and ask another woman to do it for you, that would just reinforce the inadequacy you're already feeling. The baby was hers, not mine: being in such close contact with him felt odd.
I don't like the use of "suitable one" in the line "Furthermore, a wet nurse often completes the duties of the midwife, if a suitable one is not found. I'd really like to see a source on this statement: "Through frequent stimulation of the areolae and nipples, a woman may begin lactating and, therefore, be able to nurse. Hi, I changed the end of a sentence from 'insure an heir' to 'ensure an heir'. October the 25th, I'd also like to see a source on the statement about women getting pregnant and killing their babies soon after birth, just to become wet nurses. Sounds like a complete myth to me Especially in light of the further info that women don't need to be become pregnant in order to lactate. I did not think "inoperative breasts" provided sufficient information, and also felt that it was offensive ie.
Charlie sat back in the chair and ran his hand through his hair. He re read the ad and smiled. He wondered, would anyone really answer it. He sure hoped so. Delaine tossed her keys onto the coffee table and sat down on the sofa to pull her shoes off and thumb through the mail. She cussed when a drop of water hit the top of her head.
