So, my boyfriend was talking about how he watered down the breast milk for his previous two children (with his ex).  I immediately told him he had better not EVER do that with my breast milk.  LOL  I went into my breast milk is the perfect food rant etc.  He was amazed at how irate I got.  ;0)  His excuse was his ex was dehydrated and her milk was like pudding.  Does that actually happen? It has been so long since I have had to look into this stuff, where is a good site or is there a good book I should be making him read?

 

This is important because he HAS to be on-board as I will be a working mom and he will be babies sole provider part of the time...

Thank you! I emailed it to him.  Along with one on how often a breastfed baby poops.  I had to explain to him that not pooping for a few days is normal in breastfed babies.  He said he gave them water because they were constipated.  ARGHHHH
