Toddlers: 12 - 24 Months

Is this true?

DH's friend and his wife came over yesterday. The convo turned to BFing and she was saying how in Latino cultures, it isn't common for the mother to BF during the first few days. She said they don't view colostrum as real milk, so they feed the baby formula until the milk comes in.

I have never heard of this custom before? Wouldn't it hinder supply? I'm curious if anyone else has heard this.
