Hi
 
Hi,
 
I have a question about the word :  nurse  which means give a baby milk.
 
Should we use this verb with breastfeeding only or bottle-feeding ????
 
 
Thanks a lot in advance,

I just give you a hint: when you need to know the REAL definition/meaning/sense of a word- don īt ask the public- just use authorized source as dictionaries! 
hint: google definition :word and our friend Google will display all the indexed  definitions: wikipedia(not that I recommand or something- but you can make an idea from there too), princeton dictionary, merriam-webster, the freedictionary etc etc 
it īs much easier!!

nurse is not only the person who feed the baby but as that link says : a person formally educated and trained in the care of the sickor infirm. Compare nurse-midwifenurse-practitioner,physician īs assistantpractical nurseregistered nurse.

Hi Pretty3
 
The dictionary references are good but maybe they don īt entirely answer your question and it can be confusing.
 
For some nursing can be breastfeeding or bottlefeeding.  For others only breastfeeding is nursing.  In my neck of the woods people don īt really use nurse that much anymore - they usually say either breastfeed or bottlefeed.
 
Cheers
