My mother-in-law had my sister-in-law breastfeed my baby!!
I forgot my pumped breastmilk but I thought no big deal I was only going to be gone two hours and I fed him before I left. Well, when I got back my mother-in-law told me she had my 20 year old sister-in-law nurse my baby. I am so upset and I'm being made to feel like the one at fault because I forgot my milk. My baby was not hungry he was just tired. Plus I left baby food. How can she think this was okay?

I can understand your shock. I was too when I found out my sister-inlaw (my husband's brothers wife) did the same thing with my baby. My husband and I went out for our anniversy for our first date since we had our baby and my husband's family came over to watch our baby. They had plenty of my milk but supposedly my baby wouldn't take it the bottle. So my SIL desided to try her breast thinking it wouldn't work but my baby was crying and they wanted to help her. My baby had not problem with her breast. Like I said I was shocked and werided out at first but I took this persepective and I suggest the same to you, they care about me and my baby and they meant no harm, they did not want to make me mad, they were trying to do what was best in the situation they were in. I wouldn't have it out with them just let them know that it made you uncomfortable and you would rather them not ever do that again. Anger never solves problems, but good communication can be helpful.

Throughout human history, mothers have often allowed other women to breastfeed their babies. In fact, well-to-do women in the 17th and 18th century often paid “wet-nurses” to breastfeed their infants. (During that era, a woman could earn more money as a wet nurse than her husband could as a laborer.)
More recently, breastfeeding mothers have stepped up to the plate to save babies during natural disasters. In 2008, Chinese police officer Jiang Xiaojuan breastfed several infants, in addition to her own 6-month-old, after an earthquake left 80,000 dead or missing. Was it “nasty” for Jiang to share her breastmilk with those babies? The human race may not have survived if not for women willing to nurse orphaned children.
Surrogate mother
A surrogate mother carries a fetus for someone else, such as a person or couple dealing with infertility. A surrogate mother carries a fetus for someone who is battling fertility issues. In some areas, payments to a surrogate mother are banned. Surrogate mothers can help couples struggling with fertility issues.
Beyond the Bank
In addition to exchanging expressed breast milk, some moms skip the bottle and cross-nurse, splitting breastfeeding duties with another woman and her baby. Cross-nursers say they enjoy the flexibility as well as the four-way bonding that occurs between the moms and their children. And some moms go as far as hiring a wet nurse -- a woman paid to breastfeed another child -- when they can't perform the task themselves. Informal sharing is naturally more controversial, but a significant number of moms are open to the idea. According to a nationally representative Babytalk survey on, 40 percent had either a positive response ("beautiful!") or a neutral reaction ("each to her own") when asked how they felt about milk sharing.

The Other Side of the Nursing Bra
Moms who engage in cross-nursing relish the bonding -- yet this intimacy is why other moms find it a turnoff. In our survey, 45 percent of women said the practice was "disgusting" or "weird," and it bothered them most because "nursing isn't just about nutrition." Thirty six percent said it was a personal experience they wouldn't want to share. "My first reaction is eww! And I'm a breastfeeding advocate," says Erin Acosta of Orange, California. "Barring illness, I can't see myself being okay with it."
While milk sharing is likely to remain controversial, the moms who do it feel doubly rewarded. In fact, a recent study in the Journal of Human Lactation found that moms donate milk because their cups runneth over and they want to help other mothers. Says Stiebel, who would share milk again if the need arose, "Moms are moms to everyone's children."
