A Pennsylvania woman is speaking out against a judge who ordered her to stop breastfeeding her 10-month-old daughter.

Jessica Moser is in the midst of a custody battle with her daughter Jasmineís father and the Northampton County resident told local TV station WFMZ that two weeks ago a judge told her to stop nursing her daughter so the girl could spend two days a week at her fatherís house.

“If I do not comply, I will have my child taken away,” she added.

Isn’t this what pumps are for?

It interferes with her getting revenge on the child's father.

Ah, child custody. Maybe a swap is in order. Have the Mickey D’s dad take the girl to McDonald’s, and his son can breastfeed with this mom.

What happened to a woman controlling her own body? Or is that only before the baby is born?

There is no reason to require her to stop breast feeding.

Breast feeding is the only way to ensure your child’s health, and proper development, and no safe substitute has ever been found.

She should be required to provide the breast milk for the visits.

I think the proper ruling is that she can find someone else to breastfeed for 2 days.

So you have no rationale for your position then?

Breast milk is supply and demand; therefore, if she’s breast feeding then her body is making just enough for required feedings. How will she pump enough in advance to send with the child? She won’t. If she pumps and saves the milk one weekend, it will spoil before next weekend.

You must have meant that comment for yourself?

There was no rationale for the judge to order her to stop the feedings, since he could have ordered her to provide her milk for visits.

No, it will not, as long as it is kept below 33 degrees.

You can pump in between feedings to store some for future feedings. Also, you can freeze it for later...keeping it from spoiling before the following weekend.

Yes, it can be frozen. However, how will the process start since it is supply and demand. Will she have to start pumping in between feedings to increase her supply with baby not getting enough until it increases? What kind of a douche bag does this to his child?
