A few weeks ago, I asked you if you would breastfeed a friend's baby and most of you said you would. But would you breastfeed a stranger's baby? What if the baby was sick? That's what Salma Hayek did on a recent trip to Sierra Leone.

Salma was in Africa on a UNICEF mission to raise awareness for tetanus in partnership with Pampers, when she met a sick one-week old baby who was obviously very hungry and whose mother was unable to breastfeed. So Salma breastfed him.

"The mother didn't have milk," says Salma. "He was very hungry. I was weaning Valentina, but I still had a lot of milk that I was pumping, so I breast-fed the baby. You should have seen his eyes. When he felt the nourishment, he immediately stopped crying."
