Mother Knows Best is a remarkable memoir of resilience, perseverance, and miracles. In 1994, The Wall Street Journal published an article called "Dying for Milk: Some Mother's Trying in Vain to Breast-Feed, Starve Their Infants." Chaz Floyd was one of those infants. He may not have died from insufficient milk syndrome, but it did take his life. His mother spent a lot of time arguing with and praying to God. What happened to Chaz was purely preventable, if only doctors and nurses had listened when the first-time mom said that she felt like "something was wrong," and that she felt like "he wasn't getting enough."
"Yes, a child may need six to eight wet diapers a day. But he needs six to eight wringing-wet diapers a day. That is the keyword. Wringing. Chaz's diapers were damp. Just damp. Not wringing wet."
