Vegans are healthy and strong people- BUT that being said, feeding an infant child milk produced by a vegan diet, the mother should have been taking insane amounts of suppliments- for the baby's sake. And I'm sorry...babies NEED doctors, especially when they're sick. It's great to be holistic and natural- I definitely can appreciate that, but I think it has a time and place. Clay and herbs cannot cure bronchitis...especially in an infant. It's important to be informed, to know of other treatment options [heck, I use holistic teething meds for my kids- and a lot of other people I know do too] but when someone says "your kid needs to be hospitalized" ....you go check into the nearest hospital,and swallow your pride, and pray for your child.
That poor little baby, must have been starving and screaming for help- I feel bad for the parents too, because it doesn't seem like it was intentional , at all, just ...misinformation maybe?
