Hi there, so I just went through and read through your magical milk pics to the very first entry....and there I read that you have induced lactation for your foster babies....I have a question for you. How did you do that? Not induce lactation. But how did you get clearance to breastfeed your foster kids. Cause I "illegally" breastfed my first(and only thus far) foster baby for 5 weeks and after a little fighting with SWs I gave up. Here in CA it is illegal to breastfeed or even give pumped breastmilk to your foster babes unless it is doctor ordered. We also have heavy birthmom involvement which is why I didn't continue fighting....it would have been, shall we say awkward, for me to breastfeed her newborn son(who was taken away from her due to mental health issues)at a weekly visit.
Anyways, I'm very interested to know how you did it...if there was a loophole or if you did it illegally or what. Cause, hopefully, I will get to try it again with foster baby number 2 or 17 or whatever.
Blessings to you, and your amazing family....I pray for you guys........
