    Durr, oops!

    I'm reminded of the hippies on Futurama who taught a lion to eat tofu.

    But seriously, why the fuck wasn't she breastfeeding?

    Heard about this on Wed. Or maybe it was Thurs. Anyhoo, terrible, terrible stuff. The parents deserve life sentences.

    *edit* There was no picture of the baby in this article. It's even more heartbreaking seeing the 3 pounder.

    ^^^

    Being vegan hardly need affect properly feeding an infant.

    They deserve to be punished, and harshly, but murder seems like a stretch.

    Dumb asses. When are people going to understand that we have canine teeth for a reason and that our young must have things that come from animals. That's what I like about our pediatrician. He will contact DSS if your child is to under weight. Even if your one of those mothers that refuse to use formula. If you choose to breast feed and the child isn't gaining anything from it then he will give you free samples of formula. If she doesn't use them he will turn the mother or the parents in. This also reminds me, did these people even have a pediatrician?

    Would seem doubtful since the baby was born at the home and it took six weeks for the baby to die. You'd normally go to see the doctor at least a couple of times that first six weeks.

    Not too much of a stretch if you ask me.
    How can you let a lifestyle choice override your basic parental instincts?

    The child was three pounds and they didn't know he was malnourished?
    My first kid was nearly 8 pounds when he was born and even though a batallion of medical professionals told us he would lose weight when we took him home we freaked out when he lost a pound!

    Only 8 eh? :p  Mine were both over 10. My sister-in-law had an 11 and 10 pounder. All were vaginal births.

    Yup, newborns typically lose a bit of weight initially. A pound sounds like a lot though?

    I guess milk (via breastfeeding) is considered food from an animal?

    Retards.

    Pretty much my conclusion on this.

    My kids were:

    #1 - 8.9 pounds
    #2 - 10 Pounds
    #3 - 9.8 pounds (funny coincidence!)
    #4 - 8 pounds.

    We have good sized babies, when I see someone with a six pounder they seem too small and fragile.

    All ours were vaginal births as well.

    #1 & #2 - 10lbs 10oz

    It was beyond hilarious looking at our babies compared to the others in the ward. The looks on the faces of the other parents in there were of shock and amazement.

    My wife had both of ours 100% natural. No drugs, no epidurals. :eek:

    I make sure to get out of town months before the baby's born.

    People are stupid, did no one around them see what was happening either? I mean unless they were that isolated.

    What takes 7 hours to figure this out? Nobody else killed their kid.

    It was just under a pound. The pediatrician said it was a lot, but still within the boundary of what they considered 'normal'. He sure turned into a big pudge ball after that though! :) 

    I was wondering the same thing about breastfeeding.
    Maybe the mother couldn't produce milk -it happens.
    But, if she just didn't breastfeed on principle then I think the murder charge is more than justified.

    Drippy and DC"S wife's win for "toughest wives award" :lol 
    My daughter was 9lbs 4 oz
    My son was 8lbs 4 oz
    So my wife is no wuss either.

    As for the parents in the article, they deserve what ever maximum sentence is available. YOU KILLED YOUR BABY YOU STUPID, TREE HUGGING FUCKING HIPPIES! How stupid can 1 let alone 2 people be? How can you not tell a baby NEEDS better food than your shitty vegan diet? Idiots.

    I forgot the complete stupidity of losing a human life over that of a goddamn animal, and not even the animal itself but the milk. What a waste.

    With a vegan diet her breast milk probably wouldn't have been nutritious enough for the baby any way. Not eating meat doesn't really give you many sources for protein.


    It does remind me of the lion forced to eat tofu on Futurama though.

    Total morons. Sadly, this is natural selection at work.

    It should've been the parents who were selected to die and not the child.
