We where friends in highschool and other than a few comments on eachothers facebook statuses we haven't really talked since she dropped out in grade 11 so we aren't exactly close.

That is child neglect. That has nothing to do with formula vs bfing. :?

CPS needs to take the baby before their neglect kills her.

Wow. I could care less how a baby is fed (breast or formula) so long as it is being fed. If she is not comfortable breast feeding that is her prerogative, but she needs to be proactive in making sure she has ample formula for her kid. Glad cps is involved.

I didn't BF either of my kids. Well I BF'd DS for the first two weeks before I just couldn't do it anymore.



Anyways that woman is neglecting her child. If I were in that situation I would damn sure BF no matter how much I hated it, or hurt, or whatever.
I'd call CPS on her.

One of the reasons I decided to breastfeed my first was that it wouldn't cost, so there was a significantly lower chance of running out. How could she so brazenly make her newborn starve?
