another email from nancy:
(why do some docs think that cows milk is better for human babies than human milk?)
##### went with the foster mother for a check-up with the baby.
It seems the pediatrician has decided it is ok for him to drink regular whole milk and not important for breast milk. But he can only have 24 ounces a day, and if they still want to give him the breast milk, they should just do half and half.
The pediatrician decides it is "better" for him to have COWS MILK instead???? After he has been sick off and on the ENTIRE month of May because he is *NOT* breastfeeding??!!!
I emphatically told the ### that I would prefer that he get the breastmilk as long they have some (and they have plenty since they've been feeding him cow's milk anyway it seems). She repeated what the "Dcotor" said, and I repeated myself. As I said, I always breastfeed my kids 2-3 years on average, breast milk is much better for him than cows milk, ESPECIALLY when he has been sick.So I REALLY PREFER HE GET THE BREASTMILK.
ARGH. She tells me she will call the doctor and ASK!!!??!!
