Since sharing her breastfeeding selfie, many women -- including mothers -- weighed in to give their opinions.

"I do not mean this in a harsh way, I am just curious. Does your sister feel okay with it?" questioned one commenter.

"This happened with my niece when I babysat her. She was beside herself; nothing would calm her. I rang my SIL [sister-in-law] who suggested I feed her. Happy and relaxed in seconds!" revealed one mother.

"I've nursed my niece, and my twin has nursed my son. If it's anything like me and my sister, it's been discussed before that we will do what's necessary to take care of the little," replied another mom.

"I personally get so anxious/angry inside just even thinking about someone else nursing my baby girl. I don't think it's wrong for others if it's something they're comfortable with. I just personally choose to keep that bond between my baby & myself only," admits a parent.

More from The Stir: Letting Another Woman Breastfeed Your Baby Is Totally Bizarre

Seeing Meg's photo made me really stop and think. Would I ever breastfeed someone else's child?

I guess my answer is, um, heck yes.

Breastfeeding for me has become such a sweet bond I've been able to have with each of my boys. It would be an honor to help my sister's child if and when the time comes. I would totally do this for my little grown sister (she's 21 now, so it's "a thing" to refer to her as "little"), as long as we discussed the need for it before my popping in the boobie -- and as long as she was okay with it as a backup plan.
