I agree with Kim. Yes the problem needs to be addressed, but not take the child away unless there are other problems. I know a mother that was nursing for the first time. The baby was not gaining any weight and was very sickly looking. CPS did become involved but the answer was not to ripe the baby away from the mother. They brought a nurse out every Friday for a few months and the nursed worked with the mother on breastfeeding and nutrition. A couple of years later the baby is a healthy happy little girl. The young mom just needed some education. She was not purposefully trying to starve her baby yet she would have died without intervention.
