      It’s not appropiate period. I haven’t anything against breast feeding in public but there isn’t anything natural about this particular picture and looks staged. I have seen natural looking pics of mothers breast feeding which I haven’t had a problem with but this one is a bit creepy.

    Does Having No Vitamin D Affect A Babys Bones? My son was found to have no vitamin d at 6 weeks of age. During my pregnancy he was very small causing my due date to be pushed back twice (almost a month later than first due date). He was born healthy weight of 7lbs and 1 oz and 20 in long but also peeling really bad (we were told probably due to him actually being post term). We had no monitors at birth on him or myself because of how fast delivery was. He was born grunting really bad and very low blood sugar. It took many hours to get the blood sugar stable and by the time the doctors were done he was covered in bruises.
    He ended up with jaundice and i took him in to the doctors every week up until 4 weeks of age for something wrong with him. EX. grunting, acting like getting sick (not breathing well), not eating well sometimes, muscle spasms (not normal ones. would last many seconds and entire arm or leg shaking. very concerning to me),etc. doctors blew me off every time thinking i was just an over reacting parent. We went on a trip to family at 4 weeks of age and returned 2 weeks later. Three days after we returned i started noticing him acting like he was getting sick again and told my husband i wanted to take him in again. He was getting fussy like he was getting sick and not eating as much again. (He always ate very slow). That night my husband noticed his leg not moving at all which is unusual as our son usually kept them up to his chest like a frog. We rushed him to the hospital adn the doctor first thought he had a dislocated hip and messing with his hip. My son screamed out and then they decided to do an x-ray. Turned out he had a fractured femur. We were switched to military hospital and then they told us he had multiple fractures of different age. Many fractures altogether and assumed we abused our son. They took both the kids away before ever doing testing.

    He ended up having no vitamin d at all (test was less than 4) but the doctors said he other levels were normal. Therefore it wouldn’t affect him at all. We had another dr look at in CA and she thought he had a metabolic disease but wouldn’t share with us how she came to that conclusion. I was breast feeding up until that point at the hospital. He was then put on formula and given vit d supplements. A week or two later he had hypothyroidism but the doctors also said it couldn’t be related to broken bones. After being on formula his vit d went up and he changed so much. He became more active, the spasm went away, his grunting decrease. He does get sick very easily and has been put on breathing meds a few times during his sicknesses.

    He was tested for OI and came back normal. They said they would watch him and see how he starts to walk and how teeth come in to see if its a rarer form. We were also told that research on babies with no vitamind was very limited and not sure the cause but out of all the babies and people with vitamin d deficiency it wouldn’t explain this. To me, vitamin d can not be ruled out then. Especially when he did so much better after they got his levels up.

    I did not abuse my son and i know for certain neither did my husband. Yes, my family did baby sit while we were home visiting but if they would have abused him he would have at least been crying when i moved him around. Then night before everything happened i have about 5 pictures of him smiling and my older son (1 1/2 yrs at time) playing with him.

    If you are just going to say we abused him please don’t comment. This is a horrible situation for any family to go through especially when it isn’t abuse and something really is wrong with your child. I am looking for things that could cause this. Any idea is greatly appreciated. I have been doing so much research but unfortunately there are some things i just don’t understand and we are stationed in HI and doctors are limited to military.

      Rickets

      Rickets is a softening of bones in children due to deficiency or impaired metabolism of vitamin D, magnesium, phosphorus or calcium, potentially leading to fractures and deformity. Rickets is among the most frequent childhood diseases in many developing countries. The predominant cause is a vitamin D deficiency, but lack of adequate calcium in the diet may also lead to rickets (cases of severe diarrhea and vomiting may be the cause of the deficiency).

      Infants with rickets often suffer bone fractures. This sometimes leads to child abuse allegations. This issue appears to be more common for solely nursing infants of black mothers, in winter in temperate climates, suffering poor nutrition and no vitamin D supplementation. People with darker skin produce less vitamin D than those with lighter skin, for the same amount of sunlight.

      Are you telling me that not one doctor mentioned rickets????

    How Can I Gain Confidence To Breast Feed In Public? I live in a low class area where many women formula feed. Many babies, many formula bottles. Never have I seen anyone breast feed. Especially young as myself.

    I asked my mother in law(formula feeder), should I breast feed him in the bathroom? She said ,”yeah go!” so I did and then realized how wrong it was when my son ripped off my breast terrified of hearing the toilets flush. I whispered, “I’m sorry this isn’t the best, but I’m giving you the best.”

    I feel terrible, I find myself alway caught in a bathroom or a fitting room breast feeding my son 🙁

    After being told by a malls security they would call the cops on me for breast feeding, I’ve been terrified to feed in public even if I cover up.

    It’s my first time breast feeding and I’m only at 4 months!
    See, because of people like you two makes me want to do it even more in public and show you a BREAST FEEDERS RIGHTS!
    That is what the breast are for perverts!
    It’s legal in my state but no one does it. Security doesn’t know their rights, therefor, answering to me that I can not breast feed in their Mall.

    • Curator says:

      Wow. These other posters are rude idiots.
      I would have told the malls security to go ahead and call the cops, they would be the ones looking like fucking idiots, i mean seriously calling the cops for feeding your baby? Ohhh what a sin!
      Seriously be proud you are giving your son the best and screw everyone else!
      be proud….because i am for you!
