A woman is causing controversy after she posted a photo, showing her breastfeeding her friend’s son.
The woman, 26-year-old Jessica Anne Colletti of Pennsylvania, uploaded the photo to Facebook.
The photo showed her feeding her 16-month-old son Lucian, and the 18-month-old son of her friend Charlie Interrante.
She added the captioned: “Happy World Breastfeeding Week” to the photo.
Colletti said that she cares for her friend’s son while she is at work, and she had been breastfeeding them both for a year.
Colletti called the children “milk siblings.” She said: “There is so much love between these milk siblings, it’s a special bond between us all.”
The controversial image, which was posted to a pro-breastfeeding Facebook page, has received a huge response with thousands sharing and commenting on the post.
Colletti breastfeeds her friend’s son Mateo since he was 5 months old. Interrante insists that Colletti is the “best mom she has ever seen.”
“She knew I had been really struggling, and my son was having problems,” said Interrante. “She saw that he was in pain every day and therefore she began breastfeeding him,” she added.
