Connecticut Moms Breastfeed Each Other's Kids

Two friends in Connecticut are very committed to helping each other in times of need. When 19-year-old Chrystal Klein is working at her factory job, her friend Stefani Tatavitto, 23, steps in to nurse her 19-month-old daughter.

Like any good friend would, when Stefani wants to go out on the town, Chrystal returns the favor by nursing Stefani's child.

"I don't think it's shocking to nurse another woman's child — breastfeeding is natural," Tatavitto said, according to the New York Post. "You drink breast milk from animals, it's not that weird to drink breast milk from another human."

The pair, who met who met over Facebook five years ago, say that other moms should try the arrangement due to its benefit of not having to pump so often. They also say that their partners support their arrangement, which began nine months ago.

"We were both pregnant at the same time and we were tested for infections and both of us were clear," said Chrystal. "The fact that Ariana is getting milk from the tap, I mean—that's exactly how we should drink it."
