There has been a lot of research on how both mothers and babies can benefit from breastfeeding. Science has shown us that nursing not only strengthens the bond between newborns and moms, but it also gives necessary nutrients to babies.

While many doctors are pro-breastfeeding, many people aren't -- especially in public. There have been many stories of moms being shamed for breastfeeding in front of other people -- one mom was even threatened with arrest.

Now, the internet is fascinated with one Florida mom. Lee Moffitt has two children, but has also nursed her sister's children and friend's children. Lee herself was breastfed until she was 5, so she took it upon herself to nurse her daughter until she was 6.

"Being a wet nurse creates an amazing bond with children and helps with the primal bond you have with other women, allowing you to share in motherhood," Lee said.

Meanwhile, the WHO suggests breastfeeding your children until they turn two.

Some people aren't okay with what Lee is doing, though. She's received comments calling her names like "sick" and "disgusting". With that said, she says she gets more "supportive comments than negative ones".
