Homeopathic parents kill infant

Mother and father tried to give baby son products like quinoa milk despite warnings

No explanation for why momma's breast milk wasn't given.

A seven-month-old baby died weighing just 9lbs after his parents fed him an alternative gluten-free, lactose-free diet, a court has heard.

The mother and father, who ran a natural food store in the town of Beveren in Belgium, insisted on putting their son Lucas on an alternative diet that included quinoa milk, according to local media. Doctors warn that such a diet is generally unsuitable for such young children.
.....
“The parents determined their own diagnosis that their child was gluten intolerant and had a lactose allergy.

“Not a single doctor had a dossier about Lucas and child protection services did not know about them.”
.....
“Lucas had an eating disorder. He got cramps when he was fed with a bottle and his parents tried out alternatives," said Ms Van Meirvenne.

“Oat milk, rice milk, buckwheat milk, semolina milk, quinoa milk. All products which they also sell in their store."

Sickening to think about.   For whatever reason, his parents would not breast feed the infant, maybe they thought "gas" was stomach cramps - who knows.   Does an infant have the ability to DIGEST this stuff, "Oat milk, rice milk, buckwheat milk, semolina milk, quinoa milk" that's not real milk?

Didn't bother to take the infant to a doctor, assumed he had an eating disorder - what infant doesn't need to be "burped" or get a little trapped gas?   Maybe they thought... they'd put him on a diet from day one, and simply starved him to death.

They also blamed the parents for driving to a homoeopathic doctor on the other side of the country when the baby was starving instead of going to the nearest hospital.

Simply heartbreaking - the newborn probably would have been fine on momma's milk, but for whatever reason, she wouldn't nurse him, and the infant starved to death.   Wouldn't take him to a hospital when he was gasping for air at the end of his life.   RIP little Lucas...
All animals are created equal; Some just take longer to cook.   Survival is keeping an eye on those around you...
