BALA CYNWYD, Pa. (WRIC) — A Pennsylvania mom is igniting a firestorm online with a photo of her breastfeeding both her son, and a friend’s child at the same time.
Charlie Interrante says she couldn’t pump at work, and her son reacted badly to formula.
That’s when her friend offered a unique solution.
“I was at my wits end and when she offered, I was just nothing but thankful for it,” said Interrante.
Having never nursing another person’s child, friend Jessica Colletti still offered to step up and help her friend.
“It was very natural, it seemed very natural,” said Colletti.
