It is not safe to provide ABM for these children.  Thank you Heather for

saying it so eloquently."

First of all there was no advertisement on the diaper bag they gave
out.  Second of all, as much as I hate the idea of a baby sucking down
ABM from an AB  (I'm still nursing 2 1/2 yr. daughter who has never had
ABM) you certainly can't expect women who have been giving there babies
ABM to magically start producing breast milk so that they no longer have
to buy ABM.  Obviously until we can effectively get the message across
that BF is the preffered choice (which is why we all became counselors
and/or LCs) there are still  hungry children out there who can use it.
