I agree with this also. However, if you would like to advocate for some changes to be made as far as considering breastmilk to be a clear liquid, that sounds like a great cause. It sounds like you received great care and your nurse didn't push artificial nipples or glucose water when you declined it. Even if your baby had gotten a sip before you were able to intervene, I think don't think she would've been any worse for the wear. I would be upset about formula, but glucose and water are naturally in her body and one suck of a bottle nipple would be highly unlikely to cause breastfeeding problems.
As a nurse, I think I'd be scared to have some of you ladies as patients! I'm surprised some of you seem so eager to create an uproar and insult your care providers. I think gentle, polite education goes a long way. I frequently learn new things from my patients. I don't know everything (and I never will!). I do my best to respectfully care for my patients, but I also have the right to be treated with respect. When advocating for your children, I would encourage everyone to remember your manners.
ETA: The original poster did not indicate that she was rude or in anyway inappropriate, so my comment was not directed towards her. I am just responding to some of the other posts on this thread which seemed quite harsh to me. I don't normally hang out in the lactivism forum so maybe that is just the tone around here?
