What? What kind of rubbish information do these peds give?
breastmilk is by far the most nutritious milk and best food for babies. The World Health Organisation encourages mothers to exclusively breastfeed for the first 6 months and once solids are introduced, continue breastfeeding to 2 years or more.
Breastmilk contains 200+ more ingredients that formula can never have and it provides antibodies, which formula milk can't do either.
How formula is superior to breastmilk beats me, and it disgusts me that in this day and age with the growing amount of information and research on breastmilk being far more superior than formula, peds and other health care providers still dish out their own uneducated opinions as advice..
Sorry, it just makes me mad!
