1: " your baby would not be given formula unless a prescription was written by the pediatrician."
In my understanding, this statement is not true. Anyone in the USA can walk in to Baby's R us store, a Walgreens pharmacy, a supermarket or even order formula on line. A prescription from pediatricians to buy baby formula is not required( in the USA).
2:"Landon was on my breast – ALL OF THE TIME."
"By the first 24 hours, he had nursed a total of 9.3 hours, had zero wet diapers and four dirty diapers. By 27 hours, he had lost 4.76%. His nursing sessions became longer and longer until he was on the breast continuously by the second day of life. On the second day, he produced 3 wet diapers and 6 dirty diapers and nursed for almost 14 hours total. By 53 hours of life, he had lost 9.72%."
As a reader, it is very obvious that the infant is not generating enough urine. As new parents, they should seek the advice of their pediatrician right away; not just listen to the nurses.
All in all, this is a horrible tragedy. I wonder if the original hospital made the wrong judgement on the newborn's condition. I guess the parents have their right to pursue justice for their son.

「Nothing wrong giving your baby a bottle if your milk haven’t come in yet!! When my baby was born the nurse told me the colostrum would be enough til my milk comes in and no need to give her a bottle as it will confuse her. That night we were discharge and she was crying every time I put her down n she was on my breast feeding constantly. Finally I chatted w my sister in law who just had a baby couple months before me and reminded me my baby is probably hungry cause my milk haven’t come in yet n to hurry and give her a bottle. So I quickly give her a bottle and sure enough she gobbled it all down n fell asleep!! Thank goodness I did that!! Now I always tell my friends who are pregnant to give their baby a bottle if their milk haven’t come in yet n not to worry about about confusing the baby between the breast and the bottle and to go w their instinct and not by what the doctor and nurses tells you because they are not always right!」
