THE BRONX - Last week the world celebrated breastfeeding week and it stirred up some controversy. Jessica Anne Colletti posted a photograph of herself breastfeeding two children at once on Facebook. The photo sparked a social media debate because one of the children in the photograph belongs to her friend.

Colletti says that her friend gave her permission to nurse her son in her absence, since the baby boy was having trouble drinking formula.

Colletti went on to say that the practice isn't uncommon.

News 12 hit the streets to ask residents what they think of people who engage in cross-nursing. People had mixed reactions on the issue.
