Re: The best bf article I've ever read!

Great article! Since my LO was born and we got such bad nursing advice (I don't think we would still be nursing if I had continued to follow the LC's advice), I've wondered why people don't ever sue for the loss of the nursing relationship. I felt very much like the bad advice I got was based on fear of litigation from the results of not using artificial milk, so why shouldn't the medical community be afraid of litigation for the results from using artificial milk due to their failure to support and educate the nursing pair.

I know it would probably be too hard to prove culpability in the loss of the nursing relationship, but I think until something like that happens many medical professionals will not have any impetus to change the way they deal with the new nursing family.
