Nurse Child (Nurse)

On the 1861 census my family are living with a child of 7 months with a different surname.
His relation to family in the box says: Nurse Child (nurse). They have another child (their own) of the same age living there too alongside older siblings.

What could this mean? Did they foster the boy for a time? And what does it mean by nurse child?
Thanks!
