It was mandated by the slave owner that only one breast could be used to feed the white child…if she switched up and let both black and white babies suckle from the same breast, she could be whipped because it was like them sharing the same water fountain.

She wasn't a paid wet nurse who chose this profession, she was an enslaved woman who had to feed all of the white babies first and her child last. if her milk went dry, the slave owner brought another woman, and the enslaved women's children went hungry.

Black wet nurse, white baby

And this is a lesson for everyone. A disgusting and embarrassing past for me, as a white-skinned human.

Slave wet nurse: wet nursing required slave mothers to transfer to white offspring the nurturing and affection they should have been able to allocate to their own children. The day in the life of a mammy- her eyes say sooo much!
