that's life (Australia) - - Contents -

When I read Char­lene Hin­stridge’s story, ‘I had no idea I was starv­ing my baby’, in is­sue 37, I had a feel­ing of deja vu. Al­most 11 years ago I had a sim­i­lar ex­pe­ri­ence, with my son, who I felt wasn’t eat­ing enough through breast feed­ing but the hospi­tal in­sisted breast is best. I am glad I trusted my own in­stincts, as when he was five he was di­ag­nosed with autism and is very se­lec­tive of his food choices. While breast may be best, it isn’t a suit­able op­tion for ev­ery fam­ily and I’m glad Char­lene stood her ground. A mother al­ways knows what is best for her baby.
