A gut-wrenching, heartbreaking story came up on my Facebook feed the other day. The title said the newborn baby died from starvation (though, more likely, the baby died from dehydration).
The baby was born at a baby-friendly hospital. Which means that the mom was encouraged to breastfeed, someone who had extra breastfeeding education probably visited her in the hospital, and the baby was probably not offered a bottle.
The story mentioned that the baby lost a bit of weight after birth (which is quite normal) and that mommy and baby were then allowed to go home.
