1. In order to prevent the baby from physical or emotional connection to the surrogate mother, the doctors never allow to breastfeed the baby. Immediately after the birth the baby is taken away from the surrogate mother and starts to get special infant formula.
2. Immediately after the birth the surrogate mother begins to take drugs that stop lactation.
