Breastfeeding is best. Everyone has heard those words and when pregnant, most expectant mothers plan on nursing their children. However, it isn’t always possible. Unfortunately, one mother found out too late that her son was not getting nourished. Five years later, Jillian Johnson shares her tragic story of how her breastfed baby died from starvation.

The heartbreaking article was posted on Fed Is Best Foundation, who are dedicated to giving better support to breastfeeding mothers and for those who choose other feeding options. Along with Johnson’s experience, commentary was provided by Dr. Christie del Castillo-Hegyi. She is not only the co-founder of the foundation, but is also an emergency physician and former NIH scientist. According to her Google Plus page, she has a background in newborn brain injury research at Brown University.
