Genine Natale has pressed the hungry mouths of five tiny babes to her breast in the years since she became a mother. Only two of them were her own.In three separate instances, Natale, who is a Toronto teacher, nursed other women's babies. And she is far from alone in this experience. The practice of wet-nursing is alive and well in the modern world.In each case, Natale breast-fed children who were not her own in maternal response to an infant's need. Once, she was babysitting her brother's son Mick, who was about three months old. Still flush with the milk her body was producing for her son, 10-month-old Vincent, Natale made a choice to comfort her inconsolable nephew in the most natural way she knew."
