[link to www.wsmv.com]


LEBANON, Mo. (AP) - Wal-Mart has pulled a batch of powdered infant formula from more than 3,000 of its stores nationwide after a newborn Missouri boy who was fed the formula died from what preliminary tests indicate was a rare bacterial infection, the retailer said.

Re: Wal-Mart pulls formula after baby dies
I blame Walmart, Monsanto, Dow, GE, the list goes on... for EVERYTHING that's wrong with the country and the world.

Guilty, tried and convicted as far as I'm concerned.

what I saw when I went back there was that freaking Walmart destroyed whole towns in rural areas in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.

They got popular by advertising that everything they sold was "Made in the US". Then got busted for the lie when they proved almost nothing they sold was made here.

This is not about breastfeeding. Formula needs to be safe. Remember you have babies that have been adopted or those in foster care. Some moms can't breastfeed and some moms die giving birth. There are a whole lot of scenarios where a baby can't be breastfed.

I tried to breastfeed but my baby wasn't interested! After two days of manually milking clostrum(sp) I gave up and begged for formula! I'm diabetic and was on pretty huge doses of insulin when I was pregnant! My babies blood sugar kept dipping and it was heart breaking watching him cry as his bm's were checked! He's fine now! Nearly a year old and happy and healthy! I used aptimal!

I love boobs. They are the most versatile, useful things that are on this earth. They are soft, warm, VERY pleasant to look at, and little babies are nourished by them.

If there was a 'boobie pillow' that felt as real as a natural boob, I'd buy it.

 Quoting: BRIEF


Right. Go to the lotion aisle. Find me a lotion with no mineral oil or petrolatum in it. You might find 2 products, in the ethinic/not-white haircare product section, in another aisle. I mention that because I consider mineral oil to be carcinogenic. The ones without petroleum products have some sort of benz-ene/oate/cancer related chemical in them.

Look at the clothes and find me something real. Real cotton, real wool, something not made from plastic, like polyester, vinyl, or something loaded with BPAs.

Find me the LED bulbs in that store.

Long time ago I read manufacturers have the 'walmart model" of a product which is cheaper than the models they give to other stores, to keep costs down.

They run their employees like a bunch of carnies. If you don't have a personality defect you can't work there.

I used to think WalMart was good because it was big. Now I realize, it's like K-Mart used to be, or one of those fallout economy stores, where you go where you don't have brains to shop smart, so you have to shop cheap, because of a consumption addicton. Then you get what you pay for.

It's for the shopping-and-eating career people. I quit that job.

At least you tried and made an effort to bf your baby and pump as well, extra kudos to you for doing that despite your health condition. A lot of mothers can't even bother to try to breastfeed, or think it's yucky.

My middle daughter was born with a complete cleft of the lip and palate, and no roof in her mouth. She could not even suck on a bottle, even though she tried. The formula has to be slowly squirted into her mouth.Even then, she choked a lot.
My other 2 kids were breast fed. Breast feeding is definately better, but there are times it is impossible.

Breastfeeding protects babies
1.Early breast milk is liquid gold – Known as liquid gold, colostrum (coh-LOSS-trum) is the thick yellow first breast milk that you make during pregnancy and just after birth. This milk is very rich in nutrients and antibodies to protect your baby. Although your baby only gets a small amount of colostrum at each feeding, it matches the amount his or her tiny stomach can hold.

Oh yes, it is about breast feeding....

Too many women are too busy working and trying to maintain an "image" and the children suffer.

A womans obligation when she gives birth is only for the child's welfare, including being the nurturer and raising that child.

If you want to work don't have children.

Most of the problems in the society today is because the mother is too busy working etc to raise her child, hence babysitters, day care, etc.

It is so true the old adage

MOST women's milk is just fine. A very small percentage whose milk is not enough can supplement with other things.

What did women do those thousands of years before the advent of the baby formula.
