Default Overdiluted formula dangerous for babies

Extra water added to infant formula nearly killed a 5-month-old baby in Tampa, Fla., University Community Hospital officials said.

La'Damian Burton suffered a seizure and stopped breathing after his mother, Jeri Moss, added extra water to his powdered formula so she could stretch her tight food budget, Moss said.
Moss, 23, held a news conference at the hospital Monday to warn that water intoxication, especially in babies, can cause levels of sodium in the blood to drop so low it causes seizures, brain damage or death.
"If I had known it was harmful, I never would have done it," said Moss, whose son is expected to recover, the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times reported Tuesday.
Dr. James Orlowski, the hospital's chief of pediatrics, said he has seen cases in the past where caregivers overdilute baby formula without knowing the dangers. "This is a very serious situation, especially in these economic times," Orlowski said.
