French vegans face trial after death of baby fed only on breast milk

This is what viral misleading images of breastfeeding awareness and mommies yang tak dapat fully bf anak dia are put on guilt trip creates. I will continue to "debate" on this after I finish emptying my tanks :P (watever that means)

  1. I am not sure if you read the article thoroughly or not, or you are just bluntly neglecting the fact.

    The death of the baby has nothing to do with breastfeeding, but VITAMIN DEFIENCY, which is a result from her parents being VEGANS!

    Even if she wasnt fully breastfeed, the baby would still be at risk, as her parents would treat her like a vegan too.

    From the article:

    ….the death of their breastfed 11-month-old daughter who was found to be suffering from vitamin deficiency.

    She was also suffering from deficiency of vitamins A and B12…

    "The problem with a vitamin B12 deficiency could be linked to the mother's eating habits."…

    "The couple did not follow the doctor's advice to take the baby to hospital when they went for her nine-month checkup and found she was suffering from bronchitis and was losing weight," he said. Instead they treated her with cabbage poultices, mustard and camphor and washed her with earth and clay instead of giving her baths, the court heard.


    And still, we want to blame the BF/EBM? my owhh my..

    I may know nothing about breastfeeding/parenting, but at least my brain still can work properly when reading an article, avoiding me from showing my stupidity.
