Florida mother sparks outrage after revealing she let her best friend breastfeed her baby

so she could 'have a few drinks' - but she insists shared nursing will help to 'build up her son's immunity'



A woman has revealed she let her friend breastfeed her baby after she had too much to drink, leaving TikTok users sickened after seeing the mom-of-one prioritize her alcohol over her baby.
Grace, from Florida, who goes by gregariously_grace on TikTok, took to social media to share a video of her friend breastfeeding her baby, which caused many social media users to squirm in disgust.
The video, which racked up over 1.2 million views, shows Grace's friend breastfeeding Grace's baby while she sat idly by and watched.

In the video she wrote: 'When you're a few drinks in so you let your friend nurse your baby.'

And while a few users offered Grace their support, most users couldn't believe she let someone else breastfeed her baby 'for the sake' of having a drink.
After receiving mostly scorn from her over 106,000 followers, Grace decided to post a follow up video, which showed her friend once again breastfeeding her baby.

In her second video, Grace documented the moment her friend breastfeed her baby while sat to the side and watched.

'My friend has a seven month old. Her baby is out of the state for the weekend.

'I let her nurse him to strengthen his immune system and also to relieve her,' she said in her follow up video.

Grace added: 'It's absolutely okay to drink and nurse. If you're feeling sober enough to drive, you can nurse.'

However the mom-of-one noted she let her friend breastfeed her baby because she 'trusts' her since her friend also breastfeeds her own baby.

Many users supported the mom-of-one, while others were to pass judgement and health concerns.

And while the mom-of-one may support the sharing of breastmilk, The American Academy of Pediatrics 'discourages' informal milk sharing.

Informally sharing breast milk refers to transferring breastmilk via direct nursing to an infant despite the breast milk having not gone through milk bank protocols.

I mean, pumping seems like a much easier solution than this, but who cares?

Oh no! More recreational outrage!


Being outraged is the new American pastime.

Am I supposed to care about this? Because I don't. The baby was still fed.

Yep. It's weird, but it's nothing to be outraged about. If anything, that baby will be able to tell his friend that he sucked on his mom's tit.

Drinking might get your blood alcohol level to 0.1-0.2%. The baby drinking milk with that amount of alcohol isn’t going to have any negative effects, is it? You can’t possibly drink enough liquid at that alcohol percentage to get any measurable levels in your blood, why would it be any different for a baby?

see: wet nurse.

In the Southern United States before the Civil War, it was common practice for enslaved black women to be forced to be wet nurses to their owners' children.[32] In some instances, the enslaved child and the white child would be raised together in their younger years.[38] (Sometimes both babies would be fathered by the same man, the slave-owner; see Children of the plantation.) Visual representations of wet-nursing practices in enslaved communities are most prevalent in representations of the Mammy archetype caricature.[39] Images such as the one in this section represent both a historically accurate practice of enslaved black women wet-nursing their owner's white children, as well as sometimes an exaggerated racist
caricaturization of a stereotype of a "Mammy" character.
