I know there is a debate over Bf'ing and FF'ing!! This is something that we all could have some peace about...and appreciate that we have options

Be who you are and say what you feel because those  who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Well she had options, she choice to ignore them and spend her money on booze from the looks of it and her kids suffered. Some people are bloody stupid if you ask me to even THINK coffee mate is a food source. I don't know if this was in the US or not but I'm sorry if she could afford to get drunk she could afford formula or at least cows milk, for christs sake milk is cheaper than either condensed milk or coffeemate and infants in the past lived on cows milk if the mother couldn't nurse or a wet nurse couldn't be found (aka in the case of death) so thats just horrid, I hope they throw the book at this family or mother. Doesn't seem like just ignorance, but drunken careless neglect god I hate people who do stuff like this. Okay I'm gonna shut up now before I get into a full blown rant

This happened rather close to where I lived. I live in Alberta,Canada. And eventhough I didn't accually hear it in a news report, I was curious if it was true. I heard it as "hear-say". I often use it in my postings about how I support mothers in however they chose to nurish their children. I wouldn't support a mother who would use "coffee mate" or a home made formula.

I wanted to make sure there was fact to what I have been saying. It took a long time to find this artical. I was beginning to wonder if it was true (of course I was hoping for any baby's sake that it wasn't true), but I found it and thus saying that unless you are using "coffee mate" to nurish your child then I think weither you FF or BF then it is all good.
