I know this woman who is about 10 weeks pregnant with her second child at the moment. Her first just had her first birthday. She tried to BF her baby, but it went horribly wrong. Here in Serbia, outdated US medical routines are still common. Like most others, this mom was given her baby to feed for ten minutes every four hours. "Of course", this baby was "topped up" by formula. Mom was then told she had no milk. She went back to work two months after the birth, which she is planning to do again this time. I asked her about how she would nurse, and she said she wouldn't even try because she is not going to have milk anyway <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">. I told her she could try pumping, if she really had to go back to work that early. Her reply was "the baby won't want breastmilk once she tastes formula any way, formula tastes nicer". I am so sorry she got this mom got so cheated by the hospital system, but I am not sure what I can say without sounding judgmental. I tried explaining that she probably did have milk, and why, but she looked as though I were crazy. She is a dentist, so pretty educated. I just feel sorry for these babies <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">. Any thoughts on what I can say?
