Woman almost starves her baby to death because of a common misconception: All mothers should read this story
2 After a month the baby had not gained any weight
The doctor who examined the baby in his 1st week didn’t find anything unusual because he was still wetting and dirtying his diapers. The baby however had reduced in weight. Things soon took a turn for the worse. AT 1 month, the baby weighed just 6 pounds and 5.5 ounces. Since birth he gained only 1 ounce.
It was then that the lactation consultant decided to weigh the baby before and after Mandy fed him. The results were shocking. The baby had eaten just 20 ml milk in 1 hour. She was starving her baby.
