I'm so glad things are looking up. Formula as a medical intervention is totally appropriate. I too saw my shift to formula with that eye, though in my case, as much for me as for my eldest...
you are in my thoughts. Hey, may I use Josiah's birthstory for a blog carnival I'm hosting over at www.sisterhoodsix.com? I'd also like to crosspost about your current struggles. Would that be ok?

So glad you and Josiah are home and he is healthy! Thanks for being willing to share your journey and lessons with all of us. It's a good reminder to me too as I tend to have the same judgemental thoughts as you mentioned about women who report that they "don't have enough milk". And what you said about the resources you were blessed with couldn't be more true. What a very different outcome than another mom/baby I assisted with a homebirth. Her problem was identicle but her pediatrician filed a complaint against ME, when I ordered Reglan for her, saying I was practicing medicine without a license!!! Huh? Obviously, it was dismissed, but geeeeez, give me a break already! That mom didn't have local resources and she too stopped breastfeeding early on.

Louisa,
Yes, it would be fine to cross post. I'm glad if my story helps others.

Kirsten,
What a sad outcome for you and your client. This reiterates what I say about Peds not being supportive enough of breastfeeding. Come on Peds- what gives???
