Abstract

This article discusses the abandoned children at the Hospital de la Santa Creu in Barcelona and the nurses who breastfed them during the 15th century. It addresses three central subjects: the wet nurses and their main tasks in relation to the abandoned children, the boundaries of marginalization as a result of instability in the process of breastfeeding, and the potential emotional bonds established between the nurses and dependent children.
