8 children, never produced milk
I had 8 children, and I never produced one ounce of milk.
With my first baby, the doctor looked at me like I was a freak, because no matter what they gave me, my body didn't produce milk.
So when I had my second baby, I had put in my file, that for medical conditions I couldn't breast feed. That took away the rude people telling me, how bad a mother I was for bottle feeding my baby.
My children aren't stupid, they are healthy and no different from breast feed babies.
My poor daughter when she had her son, was reduced to tears, when she didn't produce any milk either, lucky for her, I was able to boot those people out, and explain that to her doctors about me.
She had my support and the support of her sister that can breastfeed. It seems in our family, from history at least one daughter will not be able to breastfeed.
I hope that the radical breastfeeding people will learn to understand, that for some strange reason, some woman can't produce milk.
So please just look at your baby after it has a full tummy and is healthy, because it is loved by it parents. Doesn't matter where the milk comes from, just the love your children receive. Denise
