  •  My grandmother breast fed 5 of her 6 children. (4+ / 0-)

    Number 6 was allergic to her milk and became jaundice.  There's no greater sinking feeling than the realization that you are poisoning your baby.  

    Of course, this was in 1950, when the only reliable formula available was evaporated cow's milk.  He was allergic to that too.  Doctor's solution:  buy a goat, which they did.  He was not allergic to goat's milk.

    Imagine having to milk that goat every day just to feed your baby.

    He's now a father of two, doing just fine, living in the Columbus, Ohio area.
