Is it possible to breast feed an adopted child?
Q: I am a 42 years old unmarried woman wishing to adopt a baby. I want to breast feed the child so that I can have bondage with the kid right from infancy. Is it possible?
A:It is possible to breast feed even if you have not had the baby yourself. This requires continuous bonding with the baby and putting the baby to your breast even before the breast milk secretion starts. Such continuous specialised counselling would be available. You would have to contact your hospital for the same.
