Breastfeeding is a huge bonding experience with the mother and the child, especially in the first 6 months.  Don't be so callous.

These 2 parents should be able to work something out - then again, morons who have kids, then divorce a couple months later won't do anything that's right for anyone else.

The kid is 10months.  It's not odd at all for it to stop breastfeeding in the near future. Nor would be a big deal to use a breast pump so dad can have his custody days.

No kidding.  The dad should feel lucky he's not going to jail for having a penis after getting divorced.

Fantastic. She's had 9 months to bond. The father would like to bond with the child as well. Instwad of being accomadating all she can think to do is whine because she doesn't get EVERYTHING she wants, just the way she wants it.

If they've been exclusively breast fed, some don't like the artificial nipple. Not the same taste, not the same feel.

The article said the kid is 10 months old.  A 10 month old kid can eat cheese, yogurt, small cut up fruit, soft cooked vegetables, mac and cheese, casseroles, eggs, ground meats, cut up chicken, boneless fish, tofu, toast, bagels, banana, crackers, cookies and iron fortified cereals like Barley, wheat, oats and mixed cereals.

But the lady says her 10 month old won't take a bottle and if 2 days a week the kid takes formula that somehow forces this woman to never breastfeed again.

Sounds legit.

Sure.  Some babies won't take a bottle if they've been exclusively breastfed.  Also, some mothers prefer not to give a baby a bottle because it causes nipple confusion.

She should probably just pump the milk though, at 10 months, that kid should be experimenting with solid foods and sippy cups anyway.

It is sometimes hard to get a kid to eat from a bottle. Normally, you just have to keep trying with different bottles/nipples until it finally works. Of course, it doesn't seem like the mother is really motivated to make it work.

That means the baby definitely can take a bottle but she wants to be a controlling biatch and stop the father from seeing the kid so she can pretend because no judge would possibly risk the poor baby starving!  Think of the children!

Stopping breast feeding isn't going to make the child take a bottle any easier. So kid's not used to being away from mom, lets give it a bottle with formula, they'll magically eat. Dumb farks! Have the mom pump. Dad can feed breast milk from bottle. At least the taste will be normal to child. I hate people.

I added a key word for you.  There has never been a baby in the history of the world that breastfed for 10 months, had a bottle and got nipple confusion.
 
2013-11-15 02:46:09 PM  
If she's missing the feeling of someone latched on her breasts and she's attractive, I'm free on most week nights.
 
2013-11-15 02:46:10 PM  
My daughter never would take breastmilk from a bottle or formula or a paci. My whole family tried to help me get her to take a bottle or paci. It was boob or nothing until she was 1.

My son, well, he was such a piggy he would have sucked milk out of anything with a nipple. Breast milk, formula, cow milk. This kid doesn't care and getting him to transition was easy.

Each kid is different.
Each woman is different. Heck my boobs never liked the pumps and I could never get much milk out anyway.

Doesn't seem like an easy answer to the situation. Although the judge kind of sounds like an idiot.

mcsiegs: Breastfeeding is a huge bonding experience with the mother and the child, especially in the first 6 months.  Don't be so callous.



The mother has had ten months of bonding already, and will still have that experience five days a week, the father just wants two days a week of bonding of his own.

This isn't about the welfare of the child at all, this is about the mother making false claims to the media as a weapon to further punish the father for the crime of wanting to occasionally visit his child.

Do we have anybody's word on that besides the mother who wants custody? I'm no parenting expert, or even a parent, but my friends' kids were all starting on solid food by month 6-8, and I never heard of one rejecting a bottle.

Mine wouldn't. It was rough.  He'd scream and sob and gag on a bottle.  God knows what I'd have done without a year of mat leave.
 
2013-11-15 02:51:21 PM  
My kids wouldn't take a bottle but at 10 months I think she could try pumping milk and dad could give it in a sippy cup.

The judge is being a jerk to even suggest formula but also the mom in the case appears to be freaking out about the idea of the baby spending nights with the dad. I can understand that but it's the reality of not living with your baby's daddy and she has to accept that.
 
2013-11-15 02:52:01 PM  
This whole thing seems stupid though because most people can work something out. Hell, even if you can't it will only be a couple months until the nursing will stop naturally anyway.

Not all 10 month old kids are ready for solid food. Generally the advice is let the kid nurse until they start pulling food off your plate and eating it. There is absolutely no reason to switch to formula if the nursing is going fine because nursing is way healthier.

I guess there is the chance that mom is deliberately keeping the baby nursing even though it's ready for solid food. In that case, that is one farking selfish human.

That's exactly it -- this woman is arguing the father should never get to see his kid as long as she is breastfeeding.  Her argument is allowing the kid to see her father prevents the mother from breastfeeding and somehow saying a father should get time with his kid is an attack on breastfeeding.

It's farking ridiculous, she should be thrown in jail for saying that shiat.
 
2013-11-15 02:52:39 PM  
I get the feeling that this isn't about breast feeding, it's about "screw him" in a custody fight. And yes, Judge is an insensitive asshat. But...

If she's so worried about feeding...breast milk can be pumped and stored. Yer right, Mama, it isn't like milking a cow. But over five days, enough can be stored to cover two days with Dad. If she was truly interested in the child's welfare (and as long as Dad isn't some drunken abusive jerk), this shouldn't be an issue - unless Mommy chooses to make it so to try to make her own wishes paramount.

/Disclaimer: been here, done this. Single Dad who raised his daughter himself from six days old to college freshman. I may be biased towards Father's rights.
 
2013-11-15 02:53:47 PM  
The kid gets to visit with dad and Mom has to go along with the kid. But mom has to blindfolded and have duck tape over her mouth and is forbidden during this time period to be anything other than a food source for the baby

Well, like I said, at 10 months the kid is old enough to be eating real food anyway.

Incarcerated and total loss of all parental rights forever.  She should never be allowed to have kids, be around kids, think about kids, etc.  The broad is completely batshiat insane.

Anyone who says their child won't take a bottle has never tried. In almost every instance I've heard this it's because the woman has never even attempted to let anyone else feed the baby.
 
2013-11-15 02:56:44 PM  
From TFA: "The World Health Organization recommends that a woman exclusively breastfeed until a child reaches six months..."
Breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life is recommended in a large part because infants do not have a very active immune system and during this period breast milk contains the mother's antibodies, granting he child increased protection from infections.  After about 6 months breast milk becomes just like other food.

And: "...and then start solids, while continuing to nurse until 2 years."
Breastfeeding until age 2 is recommended in a large part because women in developing countries often do not have access clean water to make formula, so breast milk is simply less likely to give the child a water-borne infection,

WHO recommendations are global and not necessarily as relevant in a situation where the child has access to healthcare and clean water.

That being said, TFA said the child would not take a bottle but seeing as a divorce was in progress, I think it's fair to ask how hard the mother was trying to give the kid a bottle.  "Here sweetie, nope don't want it, ok here's my boobie."  A 10 month old can eat "solid" food and gets pretty dang hungry, there's a good chance that if the a bottle of milk is offered and the kid is hungry, om nom nom.

/didn't hold with breast feeding til the kid was 2 y/o (6 months was plenty)
//once he started cutting teeth formula FTW
///also think if they get old enough to ask, they're old enough for a sippy cup

What do you have against the First Amendment?  I'm not saying she should keep the kid from its father but merely advocating for breastfeeding should not be a jailable offense.

I'll try. Two of my sons never took a bottle. They went straight from breast feeding to drinking out of cups. One was 18 months old and the other was 22 months old. They did eat solids as well. They absolutely refused bottles.

To the couple, I hope the divorce is worth all of this nightmare.
