A Georgia couple has been charged with diluting breast milk and killing their 10-week-old baby.
While moms are instructed to not dilute infant formula, you should also know that adding water to breast milk can be dangerous, too — a terrible truth the couple learned after their infant daughter….

So glad that you shared this information. It is so important for new parents to know the dangers that can be associated with having a child. I don’t understand why any parent would want to dilute breast milk but if they did maybe after reading something like this they stop.
This topic seems to be getting a lot of attention lately. So important! I really hope this reaches a lot of parents.
I don’t know why you would dilute anything for a baby let alone breast milk. This is really great information for new moms who don’t know the dangers for their newborn. Thank you for sharing
You posted a very important information for a new mom. Hope all new moms will read and know how dangerous this could be for their newborn.
I agree, this kind of thing is very important to know. Especially for first time parents. It breaks my heart when someone loses something as precious as a child because no one extended the information they needed to succeed. I am considering adding stuff like this to our new Pregnancy page when it publishes at the end of the year.
How terrible. I didn’t know but why would you dilute breast milk any way? Makes no sense to me.
It didn’t make sense to me either, but some young people aren’t totally educated when it comes to this stuff. I felt that sharing this might just save a life, and save a parent from accidentally harming their child. It’s sad, but things like this happen.
So glad that you posted this information. Such important information for parents to know.
I saw this post on my newsfeed and thought of you!
