About the breakfast, it depends where you stayed. Did you stay in a hotel? Or did you stay in a cheap hostel or holiday let? Yes we filipinos have a very different appetite when it comes to breakfast but what you were served was not breakfast. If you stayed in a decent hotel, you will find a huge variety of things to eat from rice dishes to different breads, fruits, congee, and a lot more.

We are also Americanized so you will always find continental options. Again, you are at the wrong place. I have not been to Philippines yet, but thank you for the warning. All in all, I am afraid to eat in south-eastern countries, but I must admit that food in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, was off the charts, and cheap as on a street as in restaurants. Are you aware that many Westerners now retire in the Philippines? He enjoys the food, the beaches and the hospitality of the Filipinos.

Have you tried the restaurant in the Mega Malls? Your experience is invalid. Right, she should not trust her own eyes and tongue, she should trust just your opinion or the opinion of some local that have all reasons to lie. There is notthing wrong with different opinions but at very least make sure that you have a valid argument. Actually, the prices of dishes at the ordinary restaurants are not cheap at all compared to other Asian countries, especially in terms of portion and quality.

Totally agree. Some people agree and had pretty the same experience, so people loved the food! No wonder why she just went to low class resto. I enjoyed reading your blog. I applaude your bravery for trying stall foods, I myself would not touch these things. And street foods are not a representation of what we usually serve at our own table. Same things here in the streets of New York City, will not eat in any of the st.

Surprised you enjoyed stall foods of Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Thailand, we buy from the local markets and have some one prepare for us, more expense but not thinking the what ifs. Some of the comments said you should have researched more, they are right. Some region cook better than others. Typically locals would boil their meat and vegetables. No frills. Also for fruits and veges look for these in season. Just got back from Phil 2days ago, fast foods shop abound, foods are either too salty or too sweet or fat ladden.

Street food in PH is among the worst in hygiene. Their targets are everybody, plus there are lots of competitors. There are tons of choices for customers. If you did any big mistake just once, be prepared to pack all your stuffs and look for other careers.

What Does Healthy Poop Look Like?

It sounds like a real disappointment for you guys. As for the breakfast, it seems quite similar to my breakfast this morning here in Norway. Lots of fruit which I suppose is quite healthy plus breads which I should really avoid. Yes, it was very disappointing, indeed. We got used to fresh and good quality food in China.

The food hygiene in the Philippines was very poor. I wonder if traffic was a motivation for this blog entry? I lived in Manila but would never try that. Your guide failed to live up to the task at hand, which obviously enough was to take you to the good area worth visiting, afterall great experiences make clients come back. Actually thats not our traditiona breakfast …you should scan first in the internet in where u can find filipino breakfast meals. Because i think they just give u whats available in the table?

I hear you. But the fresh fruits and vegetables were spectacular. Fruits in Ph hahahaha … you will definitely miss fruits from Vietnam. I have a lot of Filipino friends in London who helped me in what direction to look for good food. I spent a lot of time eating around my travels in the Philippines, and although it may not be as appealing as Thai, or Japanese, there are certainly some amazing dishes; adobe, sinigang, lechon.

I hope one day you go back and find a lot of luck with good food. To make things more interesting for us, we then add different things to it or maybe cook it differently. Thus, ingredients there are scrimped. They just fill you up on a budget. Look at the fruits you got, quite substandard. If you only knew where to get good ones. By the way, apples and oranges are not grown in the Philippines. They cannot simply survive the weather. They are mostly from. Frankly, there are restaurants that are not too pricy and serve great authentic Filipino dishes.

In this blog, you exude a persona that you are a bonafide traveller. Sure you went to local restaurants, plenty of different ones. True, you have the right to write about your bad experiences. I wish I can let you try filipino food because I know that you missed it the moment you visited my country. However I do agree that the food can be quite fatty because we love that. I also agree that the food in other asian countries can be a better option in quality and being healthy.

Hence I would love to travel to Thailand and Vietnam. But, if so happens, that we meet our you meet Filipino people in Europe, I hope you get invited at their house so you can try Filipino food. Homecooked meals are always the safest, the cleanest and the best option, not the street food. I know we cannot come at parr with the Thai street food scene, another reason why I want to visit that country. But take my advice, it in a filipino restaurant while you are in Europe. If by chance you live in London, I can recommend you some places.

They taste as authentic and good value for money. Visit Philippines again and go with a Filipino friend so you can visit their hometown and have a feel of Filipino life. You can see it in some expensive restaurants now a days. Also i belive the place you went also affect. Theres less nice foods in there. You should ask google first next time to avoid that kind of experience. There are much better foods somewhere south. Iam truly sorry from what you guys experience. We visited all possible local food stands, stalls and small restaurants. There were all the same, sorry!

Keith, This is just food for God sake. It was not to offend your people. This is the kind of complain that we expect from children. In my opinion, eating at food stalls, streets etc is more typical and more show of an embedded culture than going to a restaurant. Personally restaurants elaborate dishes that are not always typical or what your everyday person eats. Speaking of StreetFoods… Have you my dear tried kwek-kwek, tukneneng, squidballs, chickenballs, siomai, isaw, betamax, and adidas?

And if not, they you better come back and try them… then, make a follow-up on this blog.. If you think your opinion on where to experience authentic dishes is the only opinion that is valid, then you already have failed to embrace the core of traveling to experience another culture.

I do appreciate the fact that you are being honest but I guess you also have to look at the perspective that you may have not researched properly. A restaurant does not have to be too posh, you know. There are tons of Filipino restaurants that would definitely be within your budget. Google can be a friend on instances like these :. Oh guys.. Most travel blogs are always raving about some thing or the other.

It almost feels refreshing to come across something a little less positive every now and then! I used to work with a girl from the Philippines who would every single day bring home cooked food to eat at the office. I never tried any of her dishes as such but I can tell you that the smell that would linger in the office after she used the microwave would not be very appetizing. So fishy and so strong! Still, I am sure that there is great food in the Philippines..

Living in China you guys are probably spoiled with great choices all the time!! Fishy and strong? I love fish! I wanted to respond to some of the things you said in the comments section of this article. But first, kudos for reading every single comment that comes in. Filipinos that ride around in chauferred BMWs are locals too. Everybody knows it is generally dirty and unhealthy. While pancit is a specialty, they have a full menu. My favorite dish is the sizzling pork chop steak: two pork chops and a side of veggies, with mushrooms and gravy. Thanks for sharing it with us though, I always love your food post :.

One Nation (Time out Lay out) Lyrics

I had to laugh when I read the title of this post. I know that Filipinos are very passionate about their food, so we were really disappointed to find the food there so unappetizing. I totally agree with you. There is only so much rice and chicken adobo you can eat. We were shocked on the fruit prices and then the quality was terrible! Hoping our next country is much better I know!! We only travelled to one place in the Philippies, but unfortunately we had some bad experiences with the food too — though yours look really terrible! We also had trouble with our digestion and feeling rubbish as a result of the food though.

Fortuantely for us the mangoes were really good in Palawan! Oh dear Agnes! Looks like you guys were really unlucky with the food. I know how much you guys appreciate your local foods and snacks like those yoghurt drinks in Beijing- thanks for the idea of having it withe strawberries! The binignit soup sounds good. Yes, we were, unfortunately. We love Chinese food, really. And not only that; I got really bad food poisoning in San Juan. I actually agree with you completely.

Clearly the lady serving me had a different meaning for beef than I did which was an interesting realisation, maybe just not a welcome one at the time! So yes, my impression overall of the Philippines was wonderful people, amazing beaches but crappy food. Such a shame! Sam if i may… Maybe you were just in the wrong place in luzon. We never hired a tour guide. All places we dined out at were found by ourselves.

I am proud of Polish food, but I can totally understand anyone complaining about it. We are all different people with different taste and food expectations. I have heard bad stories about Polish food and drinks. Nothing wrong with that. May it be of the peeps, the activities, food and of course a bit about the language — but here in the Philippines, English is good too BUT, wait for the other person to absorb your presence first before you start asking questions, people here get easily intimidated when confronted by a foreigner, OK?

Thanks Sam. Yes, fruits and veggies were really bad. Tripe in your curry? Some areas are really poor and people make food as cheap as possible putting really nasty and not fresh ingredients :. No smiley Agness anymore. I get upset and grumpy when I am hungry!!!! Sorry, but it is kind of stupid to ask for longganisa at noticeable wrapper of They DO NOT serve longganisa. If you really did a research, but it is really common sense, does not serve longganisa.

Do a proper research. We asked people in the street and they sent us to Hmmm… Are you sure the locals understood you? Did you say longganisa or did you say sausage? People may have misunderstood you. I have lived in the Philippines my whole life aside from the past four years. Let me tell you that I have never seen more than 5 obese people in the Philippines — and trust me, I have been to a lot of places in the Philippines.

My country is a third world country — that means that the majority of the population cannot afford to have ONE full meal a day. Does that sound like a potential for obesity to be widespread in a country so poor? Also, please look up what obesity really is. It sounds to me that you might not know what the word really entails.

On another note, while I appreciate that you and your friends tried to sample Filipino food, I honestly think you got ripped off by your guide. Find a travel buddy that grew up in the country, is knowledgable of local spots and speaks the local language. Obesity is far from being a problem in the Philippines. You should get your eyes checked. You might have been having double vision. You should make a trip back and visit Pampanga or other provinces. Not enough research on your part. Where did you go? You go to SM Hypermarket and you have an array of fresh fruits and vegetables.

What gets me is the fact that you keep saying over and over that the Philippines is an obese country! If you really wanna taste great variety of filipino food, try to visit during fiestas. Most street foods are crappy and tasteless. Most sellers just want to make a profit not minding the customers at all. I suggest next time, it would be satisfying if you can stay in a filipino home and be able to really taste their own delicacies.

I did also suffer from diarrhea three times on the first month but was get used to it later. Honestly, most of our food specifically those being sold in the streets are not served to please foreigners. They are meant to satisfy our locals with limited budget as well as please those who are daring and adventurous enough to eat our sweet, strong, fishy but yummy dishes.

And to generalize filipino cuisine as unappetizing as well as to invite others to subscribe to your opinion is but unfair and by far an insult to the intelligence of those who are interested to taste our local dishes. Are you really a traveler? Piece of advice when you travel next time try to spend a little amount of money for you to taste the delicious and better one.

Dont generalized that foods in Philippines is not good if you only visited an area or two. Save more so you can afford to buy fresh, delicious and quality one. Hi Jay. Read the headline on the front page once again. What we do here is looking for cheap and delicious street food which we could not find in the Philippines. I spent a month in the Philippines from end Jan — Feb this year, and I was totally disappointed with the quality of the food. They are a nation obsessed with sugar and fast food. Sugar in the bread yuck , it was even in a spaghetti bolognaise I ordered!

I too suffered from tiredness, mood swings, even depression for no obvious reason sometimes. What a shame, with all the sea surrounding them, that the preparation and ingredients are all so wrong. You nailed it Ben! I totally agree with what you are saying here. You can probably blame the Westernized sugar, fatty, oily food that you came across in the Philippines on the fact that the Philippines was under Spanish colonial rule for over years and was then ceded to the US until they became independent in In the grand scheme of things, what you ate is what was introduced and forced onto a country that did not rule itself for almost years.

And even if the Philippines is independent today, the government is pretty much like how it was during colonial times dictating the lives of Filipinos, many of whom live in poverty. Have you looked into the history of the Philippines? The Filipino people have been colonized for hundreds of years. I think people are responding negatively to your post because it is disrespectful.

You can talk about your food experience, but anything that you mention about food directly relates to the culture. What we eat comes from our heritage and our history as a country. These are socioeconomic things one should think about when talking about the culture of food in general.

And, this is something you should definitely think about especially when going to a third world country. As a person seeking to experience another culture, do your research. This is what amazing foodies like Anthony Bourdain do. Food is personal. Respect that. They just sound like excuses for you not experiencing great food. As a traveler, learn to be humble yourself and be ready to lower your personal expectations and learn a little more cultural competency before you write about a culture outside of your own.

I am sampling local culture here not referring to people but food. Sorry to hear you took it so personal. We Filipinos have a long way to go in terms of food tourism, which is a shame really, because we have such a diverse cuisine which is not just oily, fatty and salty.

Well, I guess it really depends on the location and the cleanliness of the owner. Truth be told, I was looking forward to reading your posts about our food: sinigang, lechon, adobo, sisig, bulalo, inasal, etc. But what i find quite appalling and embarassing for my country is that you were not able to taste our local fruits, specially our mangoes specially the Guimaras variety which is the best in the world. These mangoes are known for their quality and are exported. Sadly, even the average Filipino may find it on the expensive side.

Specially our food. I think they were trying to look for healthy food. That will make what youre saying LIES. Do you get this? What if I eat tons of food from your country? That would make me obese too. Opinion about Food not the people. Good middle ground would have been somewhere around a 60 — meal. To be honest, I wouldnt even think of touching a 20 Peso Noodle dish, its diarrhea in a plate, and its bland as cardboard.

The best cheap food you can get would be balut, 15 Pesos of pure perfection. I agree that quality local food that really identifies the culture of the Filipinos is hard to find in the common place in the Philippines. As you have known, Filipinos are very diversified in language and food. Each city has one I guess. Statistically, you who experienced this are just a few against the other tourists who have good food memories.

My suggestion is you need to find a Filipino who has a good-sized family who is willing to improve your experience. Being guided or invited will always guarantee good memories. Get to know at least someone to avoid being ripped off. To Agnes, you just got unlucky. Can you tell us what province did you experience this? Manila is not a guarantee unless you go to expensive Filipino restaurants.

Do it again by skipping the urban and finding a nice Filipino family. Word from a Pinay: In general, Filipino street food is not impressive. When on vacation, I always include good restaurants in the budget. Street food is too risky in terms of quality and hygiene. There are lots of delicious traditional Filipino food— you just need to look for them and pay way more than you would for street food. Unfortunately we could not afford to dine out in good restaurants.

I suggest looking for a local host family or friend should you decide to come back. You can email me if you want. You can afford a decent food in that amount of money.. No to street food in general.. Then coffee; I choose brewed coffee. But I think you got your hotdog at 7 eleven, they also serve brewed coffee for about 30 pesos.. Have you tried suman? Maybe you should expand your budget a bit more when you think of coming back.

There have been places that I was very underwhelmed as well! I hope people keep it nice! Filipino people seem to be very proud of their food and I absolutely understand that. What can I say… Sometimes travelling is also about bad experiences. I am referring to food we did not like and there is nothing I can do with that. I loved it! We are honest here… : and I can cope with negative and mean comments, no worries! Different place will have different taste or style of cooking. We met Sabrina.

She loved her Filipino experience. You never had anyone who knows something about the ins and outs of the locality. Get a local who can help you. Oh before I end please try something like Nilaga comes with many different varieties; pork, shrimp, etc. One last thing, if you want i can be your tour guide, and if you need some place to stay we can adopt you… See you around! Thank you for your honesty, different cuisines are really up to individual likings but still, at least you did not just give up on it on the first attempt!

Although I have never been to Philippines but I have tried some filipino dishes. I find them too sweet for my liking too. Thank you Pamela. I hope you can make it to the Philippines soon and find out what locals have to offer. What a shame guys! I heard the same comments about Filipino food from other travelers. Looking the bright side, at least you managed to try some local dishes in the end, even if only few :. Guide you… No biggie… ;. Lily May Paradero-Joy One experience should not be the conclusion of the whole matter.

No big deal! These nerds travel to eat in asia, they must be ready for whatever. Yet, going to the wrong places give you the wrong experiences as well. They could have chosen not to eat or buy what they think is wrong. There we saw people from different parts of the world.

I already warned my wife and daughter about whatever may happen. We can invite her back, let her taste real food in our homes and wait for her blog update. My American husband loves Filipino food and was only sick once in the many visits he had to our country. Filiponos are so proud of their food. In the Philippines, she said, you had all the flavours.

Sadly, I have to agree with you. Filipino food is not great… just too much fat, sugar, and salt. I know locals are proud of their food. I hope nobody takes it personal. There are way too many junk food restaurants and pizzerias and people get obese day after day. Hahahha now as i read all comments your a europian its just so stupid to expect that you can get your expectation to your taste bud of filipino food to the point that europians are eating almost tasteless food… Sorry but i love exotic food….

Ang congrats your blog is famous. Nice idea to blog. I think what most upsets filipino, which I am, is your insensitive headline. But, how would you feel if I went to Poland and ate dirty street food and insulted it just based on that one experience? Street food is gross. In the Philippines, street food is especially sold by the poor and naturally, it will be composed by the cheapest produce and poorest quality meats. My husband is Caucasian and loves Filipino food. Lots of people take shortcuts and just throw in too much salt, sugar and fat.

So, just try to explore options more.

Ali Bernie Buga-ay They said some good things but all are bad… each country has its own ways about food and stuff, this travel blog is biased in the approach of this topic.

A traditional Filipino breakast may contain Pan De Sal bun , rice staple food , dried fish we love having it in the morning , tomato, hotdogs, eggs, bacon, longganisa, tocino, etc.

    We also have it with coffee, tea or fruit juices. What was served for you in Pagudpud was not even close a traditional Filipino breakfast. Your guide must have misunderstood your request and gave you whatever he can grab at that time. Grilled burnt fish is indeed a common dish. We are okay with burnt food. The hotdog served to you which is what I am eating atm is more likely from , a convenience store that I believe you guys have too. If you go to convenience stores and ask for Longganisa, people would think you are joking.

    Why you were served a hotdog by whomever you asked, I have no idea. Everyone here knows the different between the two. The stomachache you got may have been from street foods. Even the locals would prefer to avoid it if they only have the luxury to do so. But they are general poor so there you go. Our stomaches are used to dirty food good for survival, come zombie apocalypse, I guess. Dizziness — must be the oily food you ate. We get that too. We love oily foods. Bloated — Well, this all depends on the type of food you ate.

    Sadly, our local markets are indeed dirty and has little to no regard for hygiene. People would normally clean the food they bought from these kinds of markets before cooking them to avoid food contamination. The good thing about it thought is that they are laughably cheap. I would suggest all foreign travellers to avoid street cafeterias and cheap pantries if you can. Yes, the food is very cheap and a meal can cost less than a dollar but you literally get what you pay for from these cheap restos.

    The food are prepared as hurriedly and as cheaply as possible because the mark up cannot be too high or else people will flock other establishments with cheaper pricing. If you really want a decent Filipino cuisine, get a Filipno family to adopt you during your stay to get authentic home cooked meals I have a couple of foreign friends who does this, you get a decent guide, home-cooked meals and way cheaper lodging or go to decent Filipino Restoraunts. They live within their means. And yes, I eat street foods too when I am in the mood for a snack in between my daily commute.

    I had a massive migraine, mood swings and heartbum caused by spicy and oily pork. If America is called the country of excess, we are the exact opposite. Obesity will never be a problem in the Philippines. You made a very bad decision when you chose your guide. Your experience could have been very different otherwise. He gave you a hotdog instead of a Longganisa. He gave you random fruits instead of a standard Filipino breakfast. He fed you dirty food instead of bringing you to decent Filipino Restaurants. For all we know, he is the one to blame from all your bad experiences here. The pineapple juice you bought from a street vendor costs about 10 cents.

    A not-so-good pineapple here costs about a dollar. Not sure how much it is where you live. So expect water, artificial fruit flavored powder and dirty ice on your drink. A real Pineapple juice should cost way more than that. You may even get Hepatitis from the street foods here. It is for your own good. Why am I doing this?

    Because you barely ate real Filipino food and your title is somewhat…extreme. Thank you ever so much for sharing that with us. That is just fantastic. We had a bad experience with local street food in the Philippines, sorry. It is like that because they have to survive. The seller has to sell something cheap to have buyers so he or she can live, the buyer has to buy the cheapest to live.

    If they have a choice, if they just can, economically, I bet the street foods of the Philippines will be similar at least to Thailand not only in Manila but even to the smallest barrios in the north. If they just have the money they will sell what most Filipinoes would want to eat. True Filipino Food, like the food cooked by their mothers or the recipe handed down by grandmothers. I am a Filipino, I agree with the cleanliness comment. I am just lucky because we have enough money to buy good quality ingredients so my mom can prepare adobo, sinigang, bulalo, etc.

    Just like how it should be, like how it was before, when most Filipinoes still have enough money. I have to agree that if you want to taste good Filipino food, you have to get yourself invited to a Filipino home for a home-cooked meal. Filipino foods are either salty adobo with salts…soy sauve , oily fried everything.. Although as stated by the previous commenters, a lot of the food stalls on sidewalks where you bought or looked for meals that you ate were not exactly made to satisfy foreigners.

    You were on point about haggling. At least one person from the Philippines can relate to this post and agree with what we are writing here. Every island, every region has its own specialty. This is not Thailand or Vietnam where you can easily get authentic local foods in the streets. Like what others are saying, knowing where to eat is way different from knowing what to eat. I agree with your post. I am a Filipino from down south and like you I travel a lot around the Philippines. Traditional Filipino foods vary from each region. Click bait posts like this makes my heart jump with laughter.

    And if you pay peanuts by the way you get well— disappointment. And who the hell goes to a convenience store expecting gourmet quality food? Our experience is based on 2 weeks we spent in the Philippines. Eating on food stalls, streets etc is more typical and more show of an embedded culture than going to a posh restaurant! This is our personal experience with local street food.

    Eating what and how you did would be the equivalent of eating at a soup kitchen or living off solely street food i. The locals eat at those places where you ate because their stomachs are accustomed to the local cuisine. If you wanted to know what the average local eats like, you should have been a gracious guest in the country, met people, shared meals with people in their homes — because that is how people eat. Again, for most Filipino families, going out and having someone cook food for them at all is a luxury that they only indulge in once in a while — most of the time, they are at the palengke marketplace every day or so, haggling for ingredients mostly vegetables and fish that they need to cook for themselves at home.

    So again, you have an accurate perception of what Filipino street food is like, but not what the everyday eating experience of the Filipino is like. Not even close. I agree with you completely, I am FIlipino and here from the Philippines, I hope people are not sending you too many hateful comments. You only went in one place of the Philippines, I guess mostly north or just one place of north luzon and you are generalizing everything. Every place in the Philippines has very distinct way of cooking.

    If this is how you feel about eating in restaurants, whether they be posh or not, you should probably avoid generalizing the whole cuisine on account of 2 weeks of street food. Filipino food varies, just as most world cuisines, on the socio-economic status of the cook or clientele. So before you write in your blog , be sure to contextualize your experience and research on the wider implications of what you eat where you dine.

    And hey, in this case it will be even cheaper than your anti-restaurant policy. Ahahaha… sorry, but that is a very narrow POV. Saying most people eat street food in the Philippines is pretty ignorant. Majority of Filipinos do not eat there, if that was the case, those street stalls would be rich. If you wanted to eat what the poor eats. You did get it right, that Filipinos cook with too much oil, sugar, and carbs. Hi Agness! Anyway, this post caused some really heated replies on your part and it really takes patience to answer to it.

    The average Filipino everyday worker would rather brave a 3 hour commute to have a home cooked meal rather than have a 50 cent poor excuse of a dinner at some random carinderia. Now it is easy to assume that with a limited market a carinderia would only cater to people who will not be able to get home for a proper meal truck drivers, cab drivers etc.

    It is incredibly unhealthy because its sole purpose to to tide over a hungry person so he can do his job and earn his wage to feed his family. A carinderia owner would have to make it loaded with preservatives salt, soy sauce, vinegar so it would keep longer so the owner doesnt end up throwing it away. A lot of people are poor, and the government steals the funding supposedly used for fertilizers and pesticides- on hindsight it would mean that our vegetables and fruits are organic.

    Yes bananas are supposed to be spotty and Nectarines are sour, yet the immaculately spotless fruits i buy in Costco is all thanks to Monsanto which isnt bad, it means high yield production which fuels the economy of Banana Republics such as Costa Rica or Mexico. I know that if i am privileged enough to travel then i could afford the extra money that goes to the local people so i could have a decent meal.

    I never comment on posts like this. The one mistake that you have made is that you think that everyone in the world eats out. A typical Filipino normally eats home cook meals at home. We take time to get ingredients ready and cook from scratch. We rarely eat out on a regular basis.

    But most of the time, we cook our own meals and eat at home. As Filipinos are a family-oriented nation, meal time are always spent at the dinner table sharing a meal and family and friends. Although, yes. Most Filipino foods are salty as compared to other nations which to us Filipinos would taste too bland.

    We do try to bring out the flavour of our meals that foreigners like you would think it too strong a taste. I will be your tour guide and I will show you and cook for you and experience the true Filipino Foods that your are looking for. I hate reading your blog because you are discriminating and judging our Filipino Food culture easily. Now compare it to your 2 weeks stay and why we are reacting to your blog. Next time, make a post if you are to go to the Philippines.

    The people who eat them are either on a budget or are too busy to wait for the legit, Filipino home-cooked meals. The places you went to and the food you tried are not accurate representations of Filipino Food. Before you go hungry, allow me to invite you to try proper Filipino food. I shall woo you like a proper Filipino gentleman, with flowers and my driver playing guitar in the background while I sing.

    They looked gross and disgusting, and not like the Filipino food I grew up with and love to eat. Even I would get sick if I eat those food. I dunno where you stayed in Pagudpod, and where you ordered that traditional filipino breakfast, but let me tell you, our traditional filipino breakfast would usually consist of fried rice or steamed rice, eggs scrambled or sunny side up , longganisa, tocino, or tapa, or daing, tuyo, or any fried fish, with sliced tomatoes, and coffee or juice, and slice of fruit that is in season like pineapple, mango, etcetera….

    Those are the traditional filipino breakfast I grew up with. I hope that you give it a try again and next time if ever you do, please try to spend more money and do research on where you can eat good and clean filipino food. We ate where locals usually eat. Just a tip. If you wanna experience real Filipino food, you must not eat on the streets nor in fast food restaurants. Unhealthy just like any other street foods found from other countries such as Thailand. The food that you experienced on the street were all considered fast foods.

    Not all locals.. We usually cook our food in our houses. So if you want to discover clean, and awesome Filipino food.. Side walk eating you wont be up for it,specially if you are used to sandwiches and salads. But if you ever come back there are more and I believe better places to eat! Most moms I know can cook an amazing Adobo. Anyway best of luck to you on your future travels! I hope you still enjoyed your stay even though you did not enjoy the food! Sad to say, you never really experienced True Filipino Cuisine. They eat at HOME.

    Or bring to work food from their houses. Sidewalk food in the Philippines is sloppily made fast food and does not do justice to real Filipino food — what we call lutong bahay home-cooked meals. So if you wanted genuine Filipino food, you should have eaten in the house of one of your Filipino friends. Or you should have gone to a restaurant that serves Filipino food. I usually eat at home, or in restaurants. Not your fault, though. Next time, eat at a middle-class Filipino home or eat at one of our restaurants. I know it is your right and opinion but I thought since you love travelling, you are more openminded than some other people that were not exposed to other cultures aside from the one that you are familiar with.

    Anywhere you go, you get what you pay for. You might have seen lot of locals eat in dirty places like that but that is just a small portion of our people. If you want real food like lechon the only way to have it good is to pay at least USD for a small one. Nobody goes to 7-Eleven to ask for longganisa. Longanisa is bought is a reputable local dealer or the ones from Pampangga and then you home cook it. If you want half decent food your 25 dollars will be enough. The street food version is a far cry from the real one. Usually if you go to Pagudpud or Palawan the breakfast you will get for a cheap resort or resto is really like that.

    You pay cheap you get cheap. I know you had a bad experience and got sick and I feel sorry for you but at least do not generalize Filipino food because what you ate is not even close. Adobo does not have a broth like that in the picture. If you got bad experience with street food and turo-turo food based on your pictures then that should be emphasized, too bad you title says otherwise. There is a lot of decent places to eat in Manila and I myself never tried a turo-turo before because we were taught that is it dirty, our parents forbid us to eat there and most parents I know forbid their kids too.

    Next time do not go to the poor areas. A very good meal in a floating restaurant is minimum 50 bucks good for two person. Now that is authentic because authentic and fresh costs more than the streetfood. Even Filipinos avoid eating street food but there is a lot of poor people and that is the only thing they can afford. I cook dishes based on recipe from different country, unless you are adventurous when it comes to food if unfamiliar you should not go for street foods unless you are accompanied by locals.

    But one thing I can tell you , those people eating street food in the Philippines that seem very disgusting to you in one way or another have strong immune system. The food. I went to Burma and got sick the first day I ate local food. But I attributed that to my stomach which lost its natural hardiness after being used to more hygeanically prepared food and water. Drink beer. You got sick and I laugh at your pain. And to ZhaGaga….. Our use of soy and fish sauce is no different from the rest of east Asia.

    Jeez you all could be so simple. You should have to know how much locals earn their living for them to choose rubbish food. But if you are lucky, try visiting their local country fiestas. They serve their good food on those occasions, and i mean real food. And regarding your breakfast in Pagudpud, apples and oranges are imported from China, they dont grow here. The Longganisa on the picture is NOT longganisa at all! Every food here in the Philippine has varieties even the most esteemed Adobo. It differs from one mother who cooks it to another. I am a Filipino and I must tell you, Filipino food is meant to be tried at home not on restaurants, expensive or otherwise.

    You could have gone to dampa or Binondo. It would be cheap but good. Most of the real food that is really experienced are in homes. Most of these are made with love. Longganisa is a specialty and not sold in convenience stores. You were in Manila as well so your authenticity factor for your buck fails. You do know that you went into a country that is experiencing poverty. Reading your story reminded me of this distressing experience and the desperation I felt at the time and of how wrong I still feel the hospital was to send this message to mothers.

    I applaud you for your bravery in standing up through what must be extremely difficult memories to help the plight of others. May God bless you and your family. Thanks for sharing! It is a big milestone we are missing. My son passed when we removed life support at 6 days old. A much different circumstance but similar. Life is so short. Im forever a different person. Hugs Mama. So sorry for your loss! In loving memory, on his 5th birthday, I will watch your video.

    Oh, my dear. I was so moved with compassion reading your honest article. Thank you for your transparency. He did not die in vain. You are not to blame. I will share your story with every person I can. You are so brave. I promise you that you are not alone in this guilt. After 2 days of my daughter being home she constantly wanted to feed and cried as if she was starving.

    My breast pump had not come in and I had no idea my breast were clogged. We happen to have Similac that was sent to us, so we tried it. Our baby girl tool that bottle quicker than I could finish my thoughts. After that I said, breastfeeding is great but bring fed is way more important. I am so sorry for your loss and there are not words to say to make you feel complete again. But know sharing your story has helped someone… I promise that. May God heal your heart and may you not feel shame for this.

    It is an honest mistake and more need to learn from your pain. Thanks for sharing. I kept trying to breastfeed my son, not realizing he was unable to extract milk. I was encouraged by hospital lac consultants. I feel very fortunate that I did not have the outcome of the mom in this heartbreaking story. My heart my soul my love with you. May you find peace and one day when your destiny will call you you will meet and you will get the biggest hug you needed souvh and the forgiveness you were looking on this earth.

    I love you and send you lots of hugs. My baby had tons of trouble latching at the hospital. I was a nervous wreck!! I was so afraid she was going to die. I had so much anxiety. I was pumping all the time and would syringe the colostrum in her mouth. She did receive one bottle at delivery for low blood sugar. That one bottle may have saved her life. This is how we could tell how much she was getting. This finally made me relax that she was getting what she needed. So, the pedi had also said babies live off virtually nothing the first few days.

    I do remember her crying all the time and being so disturbed by her cry. I interpreted it as pain from hunger. This story actually confirms alot of my gut fears were solid and not just postpartum blues. I would wake at night trembling. This poor woman lost her baby right when I could have.

    Perhaps because my baby is a female and could survive differently, or perhaps it was the one bottle. I had so many different suggestions from so many lactation consultants etc that my head was spinning. I feel so bad for this woman because we have so much info out now that we have to filter and take in. Her baby was not meant to live very long and she was spiritually being prepared with Gods peace. I am not sure anyone would know. No one else in the medical staff caught on either. This is unusual. I truly believe this as a comfort because it could have happened just like this to my baby.

    I hope she can find comfort that other babies have made it through that horrible struggle. Everyone of us is going to die. I am so glad she found a way to work through this and share the love she felt in a short time. Pediatritians do try to come up with protocols to catch babies in trouble.

    They did on mine. Plus, I was gestational diabetic. I know he had a low sodium level but what was his glucose? I could talk so much more but I want you to know this story made an impact on me and how I will help woman and babies in my job as a labor and delivery nurse. Thank you for sharing. God wanted you to get this story full of messages of his love out.

    Oh my goodness! My jaw is still on the floor from reading this! Honey, God bless you and your family and thank you for sharing this with others. First off let me say with all due respect there were many, many warning signs and this completely discust me!! Being a new mother it definitely was not your fault! Again, I am sorry for your loss this is tragic at best and I would hold them accountable.

    Every bit. These people do not need to be delivering children.!!!!!!!!!! Please do seek legal help I believe someone would help you. I did it for a year and a half on a metabolic special needs baby. Especially during the first few days of life, as milk comes in.. My own personal experience has to do with my daughters metabolic disease and hospital refused supplement formula after birth. I was grateful however when she was admitted at 3 days old for hypoglycemia with a sugar level of 40 the hospitals peds unit provided d10 sugar basically and for that.. While I was In the hospital I did this thing called triple feeds.

    I would put her on breast, follow up with formula with the help of someone feeding her, and then pump. I eventually went to pumped milk fed, breast, formula and pumped.. It was exhausting but it maintained my milk while I supplemented and kept her alive. The details are different from this healthy born baby in article, and maybe my journey in the beginning was hardcore. But bottom line is that it saved her life. However even a healthy baby could die from similar situation such as dehydration.

    My story was due to baby sleeping too much, not eating and the disease causing her to go into hypoglycemia from no sugar intake. Super rare. The staffs intuitions were not there. And like this mom in the article. My baby survived but it has been a rough battle during the baby months exclusively breastfeeding a metabolic special needs baby. This baby however had no disease..

    I have so much pain for her losing her baby over something so simple. But from a medical necessity..

    Thank you for sharing your story.. This has definitely made me aware of what can happen. After my C section, my daughter kept losing weight and crying uncontrollably as well. Nurse Gretchen from Loma Linda begged me to feed my newborn a bottle and I declined. I finally gave in and my daughter drank up the whole 2 ounces. She stopped crying and slept for the next 4 hrs. This story is so tragic. I seriously suspect that your baby may have had an underlying fatty acid oxidation disorder such as MCAD Deficiency. With too few carbohydrates in the body they run out of enough energy to sustain life as their bodies cannot use their fats as a source of energy, thus resulting in rapid deterioration and sudden death.

    Was your baby ever tested for anything like that in his autopsy? We have a child with MCAD and are so thankful she was diagnosed before something tragic happened. What you described about your baby in this blog are the clinical signs of what happens if a newborn with a disorder like MCAD Deficiency does not get enough calories frequently enough.

    Read about this particular disorder here:. My heart goes out to you. I would think a law suit is in order. Most medical people know what they are doing, so why would you do anything unless they told you? They both did fine with only the bottle. None of his four were breast fed either. A mother should always have the choice to bottle or breast feed. That was wrong. GOD Bless you. You have my deepest sympathies for your loss.?? You are a good mother and I pray you feel that and someday, you can feel better about what happened to your baby boy.

    He knows you loved him and he does not blame you! C-section as well and when they brought her to me to start feeding, it was so weird!! I am large chested, so honestly, breastfeeding was never really enjoyable for me. I was asked about giving her a bit of formula, to tide her over and maybe help her and us sleep. Now, I am not an expert. But seeing her not eating and being around nurses, some of whom were also mothers, I agreed whole-heartedly to give her some formula.

    The nurses even had to be sneaky about it because the pediatrician would be mad! We gave her 3 maybe 4 small helpings of formula and she seemed better. Our baby was only breastfed after that, and only until 11 months. We were going on a trip, baby-less, and I wanted to make sure she took a bottle well before we left. I just wish it was understood more and people would mind their own damn business.

    When my friend had a baby 20 years ago, she wasnt told then, either. Again, you did everything you could, with all the love you had. Thank you for sharing this story, I cried and smiled, he was a cute baby and again, very loved. Never doubt yourself and please know that you did your best. You kept feeding him, you called and he knows that he was well loved. Hi Jillian, Your story has really touched me and I am so sorry for your loss… you werent to know what would happen to Landon and only wanted what was best for him. I cannot imagine what you have been through.

    It is easy to look back in hindsight but do not blame yourself. Thinking of you and your family xxx. Fed is best! Thank you for sharing your story, I know it was hard, but I know that you will likely help other moms avoid the grief you are feeling. Thank you for sharing these sweet memories of your darling Landon. He will never, ever be forgotten. What a heartbreaking story. Prayers and love for your family. This is so saddening. For a new mum to take in.

    And i think the hospital were at fault. They should of explained to mum n dad the dangers. I remember when i had my first baby. I was so naive i didnt know wot to du. But with help from my mum i got through it all. Hospitals should take proper care and make sure baby is taking food in b4 letting go home.

    I am so glad I read this. My milk never fully came in so even after I nursed her I always had to supplement. Then around 6 weeks I had no milk really so she went on a bottle full time. Not every mother wants to or can breast feed. This is her. Women, this is your decision. If you are afraid to confront a physician, go to your manager.

    Thank you for your reply. I could have been this mother. My son had trouble latching properly because he was a little early. Like the story above I was made to feel that if he was producing diapers he was fine. I finally had one nurse come into my room to check how he was sucking and she informed me that he was suckling properly.

    After that I pumped what I could and I supplimented with formula. I had a lactation specialist make me feel as if I was doing something wrong but my baby was not doing well. He was also starting to become jaundiced. Had it not been for the one nurse who cared enough to check my son may have had a more tragic fate. I could have been this mother, too, and this story brings back such terror. G had a good first day, but by the second day he was crying and nursing constantly.

    I was given the same answers this mother was: he was just cluster feeding. His diaper output and his weight loss all fit the norm. We were sent home the third day. G cried all night that night. I noticed his lips were chapped and I asked my sister and sister-in-law, who is a nurse, if I should be concerned. They both thought it was probably just new baby skin adjusting to the world.

    If I Had Given Him Just One Bottle, He Would Still Be Alive.

    She sent us right to the hospital and to a lactation consultant. The chapped lips were a sign of dehydration. She was extremely concerned. We immediately put him on formula. We did syringe feeding to aid later breastfeeding. But it took a full week for my milk to come in, and even then, it came in slowly.

    Without formula, G would be dead. We continued to supplement with formula any time he finished nursing and still seemed hungry. In fact, the morning following my hemorrhage, as I was surrounded by medical personnel trying to get my blood pressure up, the nurse asked if I wanted to try to nurse him while they were working or if we wanted to give him a bottle.

    My husband opted to give him a bottle. I remember watching Philip feed him while nurses surrounded me. It got some food in his belly. But, like the first-time mother in this story, I was told everything was normal and to be expected. I was a great risk for low milk production. It is being told it can interfere with latch — that it can make the baby lazy and not want to nurse — that makes mothers afraid to give bottles.

    Thank you. I tell them if they can, and want to, by all means breastfeed. But…to remember the 2 main purposes of feeding your child. First, obviously, is to nourish the child. Second, is to bond with the child. Both of these objectives can be met with bottle feeding, as well as breastfeeding feeding. I was not physically able to breastfeed I tried with the first, but at 6 weeks of age he had not regained his birth weight.

    He cried all the time. Thank goodness I had enough milk that he lived. He was a much more content child after I started bottle feeding. Today he is nearly 35 and extremely intelligent! His brother is almost 34, and he, too, turned out just fine! Thank you for sharing this story.

    When my older 2 children were born I was encouraged to breastfeed and so I did. When my son was born in 08 he had complications latching so we struggled with that and the nurses have him formula. Fast forward to Aug 31, when my youngest was born. I wanted so bad to breastfeed. My son was having trouble latching due to upper lip and tongue ties which they wouldnt fix. He cried all the time and stayed on the breast. When the nurses checked him they said he was fine. He had dirty diapers but no wet diapers. We were discharged the very next day with still no wet diaper. By friday, my LO was crying non-stop to no prevail of the breast and only 1 wet diaper.

    I took him to urgent care pediatrics and voiced my concern. His bilirubin levels were high, he had only wet yet 2 diapers since Wednesday, and he was still crying non-stop. The Dr said he was dehydrated and to give him supplements until I could pump and get my milk to come in. So I was ordered to pump every hour and in between pumping to put my son on one breast while pumping so my body could use his saliva to help with production.

    Fed is Best in any situation as long as your baby is receiving the nutrients it needs to grow. I thank you for sharing, and hope that in some way, you find peace knowing you are helping others. You are a great mom…Continue to love. All of the time. I understand some places are more strict than others. I used the SMS system to deliver formula to the baby. Hope off your soap box and give some sympathy. But I feel that is because: a they have read all the research bumf! When breast is best first came in, I spoke out against it at a number of conferences my manager joked about midwives throwing tomatoes at me because of it.

    But as a NICU nurse I felt strongly for the mothers particularly with premature babies who felt the guilt for their child being born to soon. Despite what midwives and research say, breast feeding does NOT come naturally to everyone and as research has shown it is also not necessarily the best and only way forward.

    Well done for catching that, nurse. I am so glad you were able to work on your own initiative, and deal with the seriousness of the situation. God Bless you. This could happen to any first time mum. Similar advice was given to me when my baby was crying nonstop. Good on you for sharing, people are not born with the knowledge, we have to trust the people doing this everyday but with your story in the back of their mind, people will question the experts more readily.

    How tragic that agendas and arrogance got in the way of advocating for the most vulnerable party in the equation, the newborn child. And you are making a real difference. When I become a mother I will not hesitate to give formula to my baby if his health is otherwise in danger. I am so very sorry to hear of this outcome. Nothing with the tragic outcome this case had. I did, and ultimately I had to have another c-section. Instead of it being a routine if not happy occasion, I had panic attacks during the procedure, and pnd for failing my child and my body.

    Then breastfeeding, I was told with my failed vbac child I had sufficient milk, even though it was incredibly minimal. BF was long, distressing, and my child was losing weight, but apparently latch was ok and milk was ok — neither seemed ok to me, nor did my child, she was losing weight for no reason well over and above expected loss in the first few days, and they kept us in 10 days checking for maternal competence as a reason for my child doing so poorly, and doing tests to see if there was some illness making her so poorly only to release us with her still not stablised with a referral to a lactation consultant.

    They did NOT tell me this removes the tissue that produces the fats a baby uses for fuel. My breasts had grown back bigger in them years but you can not replace the specific fat producing tissues taken during a reduction. It was in part the staffs fault inc a paediatrician, maternity nurses and the lactation consultant and in part my own obsessive brainwashed belief in the natural anti intervention crap. She has developmental delays and I will never know what role that first 2 months played. These days when I hear a woman saying she wants a home birth, or anything else that is from that philosophy, my heart races.

    I wanted a home birth with my first child and couldnt because a severe bleed from a poorly placed placenta made us high risk. Had I tried a home birth, my first child and probably myself, would have died. I get it, we all want whats best for our babies. Research based on the death rates of mothers and babies during labour and death or poor outcomes for babies in the first month after birth, and how those rates have changed over the last years, since 1 Hospitals, 2 milk substitutes.

    Same goes for immunisations. Ignore the naysayers. Send them some tin foil for their heads. Use modern medicine. And even as for maternity wards in hospitals… I have 3 children now. In terms of bottle sanitation, in you essentially had to steep the bottles in bleach milton to be doing the right thing, in the staff were absolute, you had to steam clean them… and in the exact opposite was true, do not bleach or steam clean the bottles, was with tap waters only.

    They are equally as susceptible to trends. Goodness knows what their advice is now. Its very hard for new mums to figure out right from wrong. But I can say the anti vbac pro breast movement went too far for sure. I was unable to breastfeed due to many medical complications and medicine and I desperately wanted to breastfeed and to this day I am so angry with the problems I had and wish I had been able to breastfeed my son. But reading your story helped me realize that I might have had a similar issue and my son would not be here had I been able to breastfeed because the women in my family have had benign cysts in glands.

    It never occurred to me that I would or could have a problem with that until now. The nurses should have helped you more and been willing to try other options and find or help you find solutions. God bless you. My prayers are with you. This story touched me deeply. I admire you so much for going through such an incredibly heart-wrenching time in your life and having the courage to share it with the world and make a positive impact. Without knowing you personally, I am so unbelievably proud of you for having the courage to let other moms or future moms know about the dangers and complications associated with breastfeeding insufficiency.

    I hope that you can live your life in peace because you deserve to, and thank you so much for sharing this. I wish you and your family all the best in your journey. Did he pass at 10 months old?? I believe none of this was your fault! Doctor and nurse negligence. I am an OB nurse but have worked in the NICU for 2 years and as a mother of a child who was failure to thrive because of poor milk transfer, I am so sorry for your loss.

    Most hospitals are aware and provide education on formula feeding. Majority of mothers that do have breastmilk but not a sufficient amount supplement with formula. It is very disappointing to hear hospitals deny a baby supplemention and miss the signs of starvation. I imagine it may have been difficult to do but truly believe it will save lives of other little babes. I shared it with others because people really need to hear this message.

    So sorry for your loss of beautiful little Landon. Thank you so much for sharing your story tho. Bottle feeding is fine. I bottle fed both of mine and they are very healthy adults now. God bless you! My son, my one and only could not could not latch properly due to lip and tongue ties. I was still lost from epidural and never experiencing birth before, some nurses helped some made me feel like I was complaining too much about my son crying. I cried along with my son.

    I remember saying to myself , his tongue was short, but there was no one to hear me. He became jaundice and I was told I needed to feed him more. Thank God to the nurse on my discharge day who gave me formula, we were able to go home on time and breast and bottle feed until I hired a private Lactation nurse 2 weeks later who referred to a surgeon to cut those ties. I was able to exclusively breastfeed thereafter. As you can see from the comments, many moms go through things like this especially as first time moms.

    Some stuff we will never be fully prepared for, we learn and do better next time. God bless! This is so unacceptable with all the medical advances we have today and the knowledge….. I hope you sued the crap out of this hospital cause what they did was neglectful. You and your poor boy. I felt guilt with each one cause of this stupid breast is best stigma being pushed on women. Alive is best. So sorry again you had to go thru this. Blessings and prayers. God bless you and your husband. I am so sorry for your unfortunate experience. I am very glad you have another child.

    May God bless you all. First, I am sorry for loss. I too had trouble producing milk seems to be a family history and when baby 3 came, I still had lactation consultants coming in telling me I needed to breastfeed. Thank you for speaking out and telling your story. I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful son Brandon.

    You are so right that we mothers have to be the advocate for our babies whether they are newborns or fully grown adults. My daughter died at age 29 yr old leaving twin boys who were only 6 yrs old at her death. I live every day with the sorrow and guilt of not pushing harder at the first hospital. I am crying as I type and my heart breaks for you and all the mothers who have lost their children to preventable issues. You will hold your little Landon again. Hugs to you. This is heartbreaking. But being a parent to 4 children, 3 of which were breastfed, I am dumbfounded by the lack of awareness that your child was not getting enough milk.

    Dumbfounded by the doctors and nurses that did not see it. Dumbfounded by the excuses. Thank you so much for sharing this story. I was in a similar situation, but my son was quite chubby when he was born and a wise doctor caught it when he waa 4 days old. We spent a week in the hospital, but were able to take our son home. The guilt and shame I felt was horrible. I so appreciate you helping women in know and understand that truly Fed is Best.

    Landon was beautiful. Such an important post, thank you for sharing and educating xx. Gloat much?? While our circumstances were different, I also had to hold my baby while he took his last breath. Not something anyone should ever have to go through! As a newly qualified midwife about to enter my own practice I am VERY grateful for your story shared with such intelligence and deep love.

    I will take your words into my practice and always remember your little lad. Much love and thanks to you xxx. I am so sorry for your loss, but thank you so much for sharing. I do not yet have children, but I hope to. You and Landon are making a difference for other moms, dads, and babies out there. Thank you, again, for your courage in sharing your story.

    Love and healing for you and your family. Its not your fault, being a first time mommy Everything is new to you. You wonderful mama trying to do everything right. It should not be so difficult. So guilt ridden. There is not ONE right way. There are many right ways.

    Stop guilting mothers into thinking there is one way, so they do not starve their babies. We love your baby no matter how he or she is fed. God bless you mom. Thank you so much posting about your experience. I feel that you are angel sent because your story will save many other babies.

    God bless you all and may Landon rest in peace. Being a mom to two preemies, both who had jaundice, one with autism, the other with mental health issues, I am so glad we chose bottle after all the stress my body went through, and still goes throu, 14 hpyears later. Netsuke and the Lactose free similar were amazing for my girls. I was a NICU nurse for 35 years. Over the years I saw many babies come in with dehydration, jaundice, etc-all the signs of problems with feeding.

    I am not convinced that baby friendly units are baby friendly at all. I am so sorry for your loss of baby Landon. You are very brave. Landon was very lucky to have had you for his mommy. It took nearly 4 days with my first and he was born 39 weeks. They kept pushing me to keep trying and assured that she is getting something.

    I was ready to be discharged 2 days later but then the pediatrician denied hers because she had not peed much and was slightly jaundice. She went from 7lbs to 6lbs 3 oz. So we had to stay another night for them to monitor her after we finally were given formula. Thankfully she slept so much better and is so much happier. Yes I do agree that beast is best most of the time but as with everything in this life, there are very few situations that go the way they are supposed to.

    Especially when it comes to a baby. I applaud you for bringing to light such a painful experience. Thank you for sharing and being so that others might avoid the same tragedy. When I taught expectant parents in preparatory classes before delivery this was always a discussion that everyone was interested in. I will keep you, Landon and you family in my prayers As I have for all the little angels that have touched my heart. I had never leaked whilst I was pregnant and even when a nurse tried to express my milk nothing came out. On the fourth day, after many tears, I decided to put him on the bottle.

    As a new mother I was terrified taking him home. I was so confused with all the different advice that it would have been easy to slip into depression. Fortunately I have a wonderful husband to support me. When I had my second son Paul a few years later he went straight on the bottle. Bless you and your little one. My Son born last feb 15 he weighed 3. I trust them they were the professionals but I ask them how can you sure that my son have enough milk or he get milk to my wife? I saw his dry lips and pale skin, My wife started to cry and I almost cry seeing our son crying with a hoarse voice.

    Finally 6am in the morning he gave him 2 antibiotics IV for 7 days ampicillin and amikacin, his urine slightly red with a blood residue clot, his result urine are pus cell is and bacteria is the normal is They called her again for almost 4 times, maybe she is pissed with me and gave me a formula called similac. Me and my mother who almost cry seeing her last grandson weak cry for almost 18 hrs buy the formula and gave it to our son 30ml in two feeding to avoid stomach complications. He suck like a man who did not eaten for a week, I saw my son he is suffering from hunger that is the time that I realize I did good for him.

    I am so sad to read this tragic story. I had problems feeding my first child. He cried all the time too. Tried again with the second. She slept 20 hours out of every She ended up in hospital dehydrated and underfed too. The third child I had never had one single breastfeed! I simply refused! We all were being pressured into breastfed is best. I do hope you can get over the guilt you feel. You truly have none. Good luck? I have no doubt you gave London every thing you could have given the circumstances. How brave you are!

    Thank you for telling your experience. Through your profound loss and incredible strength for making your experience known, you are helping to educate new families and medical professionals. I am an ER nurse. I might not have picked up on breast milk insufficiency. I, unlike my brothers, was not breastfed for very long. My maternal grandfather was gravely ill and passed away one month and one day after I was born. I have never asked them for exact details of what happened, but now I will. Again, thank you for sharing. Your strength through loss is astounding!

    Being able to share your experience WILL help other infants and families. And, will help to inform other healthcare professionals. Thank you for the bravery to share your story. Know that your voice is being heard. Know his life IS special. Know your experience was not in vain. Know you tried your best and trusted your mentors. Know the pain lessens but never goes away; thankfully we never forget our Angel babies. My heart is with you. Love from a mom of an angel baby approaching 10years. Every baby and mother is different and I feel that you were let down in the worst way possible.

    The lactation consultant sent me home with orders to pump and bottle feed him whatever I pumped, even if it was just a small amount and to bring him back the next day for a weight check. The LC encouraged me to bring him back the next day for another weight check after seeing how upset and worried I was. Luckily for us my milk came in a few hours after that first weight check and he was up 6 oz the next day.

    After that I produced more than enough milk for my son who was a big eater. After reading this I wonder if that one 2 oz bottle of formula was what prevented this story from being our story. I still believe breast is best and will encourage breastfeeding when possible but only if enough milk is being produced and baby is thriving. If not, then supplemental bottle feeding should be encouraged. So heartbreaking. I encourage breastfeeding but also empower mothers that it is their choice and they have to follow their gut. We can check a CBG any time we feel signs are there and our docs firmly believe in supplementing when needs are there.

    And when we do that I encourage mommas to nurse first to keep up breastfeeding and follow with bottle. Thank you for sharing your heart break and putting your story out there. Wish I could change your experience. Thank you for sharing your story Jillian. I can definitely relate to this story! My baby Kaitlin was hospitalized when she was only 4 days old for 4 days from dehydration after exclusively breastfeeding.

    New mothers should be educated about other alternatives as well and not just pressure them into exclusive breastfeeding. I wish I could have read your story years ago. In my case, it was delayed lactation and my babies cried and nursed non-stop. I wish more education was available about this for new mothers. Blessings to you and your family. I have a thyroid condition and no one told me it could affect my milk production when breastfeeding.

    I was pumping day and night. At the hospital we were informed our son was dehydrated and we asked that he be given foemula. The head nurse reprimanded us and told us our decision to feed him formula was sabotaging our efforts to breastfeed. The pressure to breastfeed was immense and rthey treated us like Satan for our decision. How very very sad to read that you trusted the information you were given and it was wrong AND BULLYING, to deny babies the opportunity to feed on formula is an absolute disgrace, My daughter had a nightmare time with her first born, trying to breastfeed, eventually in the middle of the night, when we were sure he was starving, we made a bottle up and fed him, he was so very grateful,.

    No one can bring your darling baby back but by making your story public, you have given us all the greatest gift of all, you have saved babies lives without a doubt,thankyou for being brave,God Bless,. So sorry to hear about your previous baby boy he in the arms of God I pray for your peace and strength to make though this hard time I pray that after your healing that you would have a beautiful baby somedayGod can do anything but fail????

    This happened to my son in My son survived, but has disabilities. I often wonder if some of his disabilities were caused by this. This is the first time I have actually read anyone else explain this. I asked, and I beat myself up with guilt for years, and still wonder. This sounds scarily familiar. I was shouted at the next day for doing so but my son was happier. I still feel a bad mother for failing to feed especially when you hear the stories of those that battled through.

    Women should never be made to feel bad as long as there babies are fed. This should never happen and the poor mother has to live with it when it was the midwives and lactation consultants fault. I am so horribly sorry for what you went through! I pumped after each feeding, but never got more than an ounce. I gave up trying and just bought some bottles by two weeks.

    I talked to my doctor when I was pregnant with my second, so I was prepared, but the milk was barely better with him. He cluster fed, was put under the light for jaundice on day 2, and was being supplemented by our release on day 3. I pumped and nursed for two months, and supplemented as little as possible to increase my production, but got just under 2 ounces in my best release. I gave up around two months with him, as it dried up to partial ounces.

    I never knew the correlation between my thyroid and pcos and milk production. I am so grateful that there were awesome doctors, nurses, even lactation specialists there to help me with both of my babies. I felt like such a failure, but they assured me it happens for some women.

    No reasons why, it just does. I so wish they had suggested supplemental feeding to you. Oh my goodness, your story has shaken me to the core. I am so so sorry for your loss. Thank you for your incredible bravery in sharing your experience. I am a doctor and will carry your story with me when I manage and advise my patients with a newborn.

    As a mother myself, my heart breaks for you. I wish you and your family peace and happiness. You are very brave for sharing your story. My heart broke for you as I read what happened to you. There is no question in my mind that you have saved many lives by sharing your story. Bless you, your gorgeous son, and your poor broken heart. I wish you all the best life has to offer, and may you look to your future with no trace of guilt, but just a lovely memory of a special little boy, who left too soon.

    First my condolences to you! I do understand as a new mother you were not educated on breastfeeding properly but I would say to all Mothers, trust your instincts. Milk should come in before you leave the hospital or very shortly after upon returning home but the thick colostrum should be enough until then.

    Is it coming out, is baby swollowing? He should have never been dolischarged in that condition.

    Trust your instincts Moms! My son is almost 25 now, but this could have easily been him. There were no lactation specialist to my knowledge. He began to loose weight. Luckily our pediatrician had e follow up with a bottle. He sucked it in. By the time he nursed on each side, then had a bottle it was time to start over. I gave in to the bottle from necessity, and felt like a failure. I had no idea just how dangerous this could have been. Hope your story will help others understand that they are not failures, and to listen to their instincts!
