I am so sorry about this. I cant imagine standing by, just watching two people sytematically wreck an innocent baby's life. I have been thinking about your thread, and am keeping my fingers crossed... should they screw up, you would get guardianship!
I hear ya about the breastfeeding. If they dont want to, dont like it, cant stand it, just say it. I dont like excuses either. but we also have to remember that drug addicts, at their core are very selfish. even in recovery, its all about *them*, so to me, not wanting to breast feed fits in with this, after all, breastfeeding your child is a selfless act....you are totally giving of yourself, kwim?
another thing to consider is that formula might not be so bad if she isnt caring very well for herself. I wonder, would her diet, if it was poor and lacking, affect the "quality" of her milk? I mean, if she's smoking cigarettes, eating popcorn and twinkies, formula might be better, kwim?
