Please see the footnote about the new international organisation to stop this happening to mother and baby breastfeeding dyads.  Sadly Alma and Habiba's case is not the only one...

Where did you hear this?  The facebook page says that we don't know.  Even if it is true right now, it is possible that breastfeeding may resume sometime in the next several days as Alma recovers.  Habiba has a choice now if she wants to continue to offer in hopes of reestablishing breastfeeding or if she wants to accept this situation as weaning.  Alma has a similar choice.  You couldn't say that a child has weaned because she does not nurse for a day.  They hadn't even been reunited for an entire day when this was posted.  It's not necessarily a done deal.

I am confused and can't find any footnotes. Can you elaborate as to where they are on the page?

OIC so if anyone is lazy about looking it up the organization is called ALMA (tear that's the baby's name) and it's for all AP parents and if you want to join e-mail

 

alllovingmothersassociation@gmail.com

 

We need to keep supporting the cause and protect Habiba and Alma's privacy so they can heal. I am so happy they are together and I really hop she will be able to nurse Alma again. If not I am sure just being together will be enough and her devotion to her daughter is immense.

I have actually heard that they *are* breastfeeding once again.  I imagine that this sort of traumatic separation would most certainly affect a breastfeeding relationship, but also believe that is is very possible for it to resume with love and patience.

 

Although many us would love to follow Alma and Habiba's story, I hope that they are given continued support but also space to heal and renew their relationship.  I look forward to any updates which may be made available, but also accept that we may not hear.
