Mum posts photo breastfeeding friend's son and own child

Pennsylvania Mom Posts Photo Breastfeeding Friend's Son and Own Kid
A mother from Pennsylvania said breastfeeding is so nice, she's doing it twice - with her own son and a friend's son simultaneously.

Jessica Anne Colletti, of Conshohocken, said she has been nursing her son and her friend's child for the last year.

She shared a photo - which shows her feeding both her own 16-month-old son, Lucian, and her friend Charlie Interrante's 18-month-old son, Mateo - on a pro-breastfeeding blog.

The picture of Mrs Colletti, 26, and the two boys, who she dubs "milk siblings", has divided users on Facebook after she then posted the image on her page.

"Happy World Breastfeeding Week!" Mrs Colletti wrote. "I watch her son while she works and have been feeding them both for a year! So much love between these milk siblings, it's a special bond between us all."

Colletti has been breastfeeding young Mateo since he was just 5 months.

"She was breastfeeding but didn't have time to pump - I was already breastfeeding my son and it just made sense to nourish him in the same way," Colletti said.

Mixed response on social media

25-year-old Ms Interrante moved in with Colletti and her husband last month. She added: "She knows I want nothing but the best four our boys, which is why she supports me breastfeeding our babies."

Interrante said: "She's the best mum I've ever known. I don't trust many people with my son."

The original post, which has since been 'liked' more than 700 times, received a mix of positive and less supportive responses from users.

Colletti has since considered removing the post altogether due to the negative feedback and other users hassling her, reports the Daily Mail.
