    Wow... not the outcome I was hoping for. What's this Haitian belief in "bad milk" all about? I'll have to google that.
    DS#1: Aidan, born 1/7/11 - 9 lbs. 5 oz. 22 in. (a difficult induced labor), BFed for 2.5 years after a VERY rocky start (indebted to LLL for the support)!
    DS#2: Amiel, born 12/11/13 - 9lbs, 22 in., 8 days "late," spontaneously, naturally & unmedicated after resisting pressure to induce.

    Whew - that one took my breath away.

    It gives me little afternoon fantasies about becoming a traveling aid worker specializing in lactation and breastfeeding advocacy

    Aidansmama, did you have any luck?
