    How sad! I'm sorry to hear that.

    First off, definitely make sure she gives formula and NOT cows milk. Baby cannot live well on cows milk. It's very important that her baby gets formula while we figure this out. Also, if you feel like it, you can pump some milk for her so her baby can get breast milk. Only if both of you are okay with that, of course.

    Secondly, she should find out what medicines she was given, when, and why.

    Thirdly, is she sure she's not making milk? Has she tried nursing baby at all? What's making her think she has no milk? Is she not able to express any or something else?

    Sigh. Was she possibly given a birth control shot?

    Do you mean baby is one month old?

    Agree with op. Formula or donated milk for infant only!
