Baby C was a 12 week old baby, left without food, only salty sugar water, for over 18 hours at Yarl's Wood IDC this month.

UK Borders Agency have admitted this happened, but stated it was perfectly acceptable.

If you have any infant feeding qualifications, Alison Blenkinsop wants to hear your professional opinon.

Have emailed my MP and asked him to contact Liam Byrne. Horrifying that the Borders Agency thinks this is an acceptable way to treat babies - and that they force women to give unsafe feeds by preventing them from making up formula in a safe manner. angry
