why isn't she nursing the baby if she want's such a healthy diet?

Breast milk from a strict vegan isn't that healthy for an infant.

I believe she was objecting to the milk products in the formula the ER physicians prescribed.

Maybe because her nipple is made out of meat?

I am a vegetarian but I certainly wouldn't 'press'
or force 'my' beliefs on a child of
mine in danger, whose requirements may differ to keep
that child alive and well.

She forgets that child is a separate individual and
may not, when she's an adult, even follow her Mom ..in being a vegetarian.

We are all different and that difference should be
Honoured..

Don't be silly, P. H.

I can think of two reasons right off. One, she may have "inverted" nipples like my first wife. If that is the case, it would be impossible for the infant to latch and suckle. Two, she may have stopped lactating like my second wife. Obviously, in both cases my children required formula.(My youngest still does.) The takeaway here is that the mother put her child at risk because of her personal commitment to the vegan regimen, as was said before by Grace N.
