Baby Formula Made Wrong!

We were told about a case today where a mother mixed up her portions when she was making formula for her newborn. Instead of mixing 1 part formula powder with 2 parts water, she mixed 4 parts formula with 1 part water. The baby ended up dying with a blood sodium level above 200 mmol/L (normal levels are around 140 mmol/L).

The poor baby was basically poisoned by salt...
