Re: i just want to ask...why only when its medical?
I'm all for BFing, but it is a mother's decision. There could be many reasons that BFing would actually not be healthy for the child. Your case, if the mother wasn't eating right, other reason's the mom was stressed out, etc. If someone wants to BF than they need all the support they can get (b/c some Peds. aren't very supportive or know anything about it), but if you don't want to BF than don't. I don't think it's healthy for the child or the mom if it's done b/c they have to and the mom really doesn't want to. Children can sense these things and would not be good. IMHO.
