16 month old weighs 10lbs

  1. I heard this story on the radio this morning. It's about a 16 month old baby who weighs 10lbs. The baby was on a "vegitarian" diet consisting of mainly nuts and was not given any formula.

    That is just sad. I wonder why no one around them spoke up. And I don't get the "no breastmilk". Your body makes it but since you're a vegan, it's "bad"?

    Hope this baby has a better life.

    These brilliant people should never be allowed to reproduce again. This poor baby will, most likely, be trying to overcome these effects for the rest of her life.

    Oy.... no reason to be sorry. Just some food for thought. Is there an update to the story? Why was it being talked about again?

    You just want penis chocolates!

    Seriously, I just thought that before we all rehashed any new news or updates about it, we could visit where we were the last time we discussed it.

    Quite frankly, I'll discuss anything that isn't war related.

    http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_580888.html This one's kind of old, but says they were expecting a second baby, should have had it last fall. Great!

    I especially liked this classy comment:

    "We are about to drop another seed - and no one can tell us how to raise this child or any of our children," Mr Swinton, 31, said from the New York jail where he is awaiting trial.

    From the article:

    He also told the New York Post that he would not let his wife breast-feed the child because she was not "pure enough" after smoking marijuana.
    Uh huh. Nuff said.
