    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.

    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

      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.

      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.
