His mother called to let me know and of course to see if I had any tips for her. He is a fully breastfed baby and yet on admittance to hospital the doctor told her how much formula he would need. She explained that he was breastfed and said that she had to almost argue her point and get them to note that he was only to have her milk.
I confess to being stunned that despite all the knowledge about breastmilk, when a baby is ill the default is formula.
This isn't about not wanting/liking formula. This is about an exclusively breastfed baby being given a foreign protein to digest whilst his body is fighting an infection. I'm sure that one day someone will be able to explain it to me
