Re: did you give your baby FORMULA instead of your breast milk
Yep. Emerging studies have shown that there is little difference between breast milk and formula. The only time breast milk is a benefit is when they are premature. My friends breastfed baby had all sorts of digestive issues, ended up with eczema, when the "research" says that is not supposed to happen. Why not get them used to the stuff they will eventually eat instead of it being such a shock to their system.

Re: did you give your baby FORMULA instead of your breast milk
Formula is gross. Most parents when they pay exorbitant prices for these special baby-designed products, assume they're paying for products that are safe and healthful. In reality, if you look at any of the name-brand formulas on the supermarket shelves you're looking at a crunched up multivitamin, some protein isolates, etc, all with a nice splash of artificial sweetener typically, served up in a nice plastic container lol.

I would have to think even pasteurized storebought dead milk, if the right enzymes were added back to it, would be less unhealthful.

Just go google, say, Similac Advanced. Review its ingredients. Ask yourself if it's food. I mean, you can take a fairly palatable soy burger, place it in front of a dog, and they won't eat it. They know what it is. More to the point, they know what it isn't.

One yes the other no. One for 2.5 years. First one was unable to breast feed. I would not use soy formula again. And I had to alter my diet a lot for the second one because of allergies.

Re: did you give your baby FORMULA instead of your breast milk
I didn't have my own breast milk since I didn't give birth to my babies. Yeah, breast milk is better, but I am beyond thankful we have formula to nourish babies who can't get breast milk. Imagine living somewhere or some time when a baby could not get breast milk and there was no such thing as formula. And no...you can't just give a baby straight cows milk...doesn't work like that.

^^this ^^ is shill induced asshattery.

Formula is synthetic chemicals. Man will never be able to come anywhere close to replicating breast milk. Breast milk has genetic cosines, hormones, antibodies, nutrients, etc etc.

Not breast feeding is child abuse IMO. Unless you didn't have the option.

Breast fed children are FAR smarter. They age more slowly. They grow stronger. They have greater immunities. Bigger brains. Healthier puberty later. And they become healthier adults. Those are the medical facts.

Baby formula just killed 40 babies in china. They are constantly recalling formula because it creates sickness and allergies in babies.

Formula is shit. It should only be used in a matter of life and death. And if your baby won't latch then you pump.

Breast feeding also benefits the mother. It creates a bond between mother and child that helps that baby's brain develop properly. The chemical response of breast feeding helps the mother lose weight and recover from pregnancy in half the time. It also tightens her vagina faster after the trauma of birth.

These are just the things that dumb humans have figured out. We can be certain that we have covered about 5% of the real benefits of breast feeding. There are things happening there we will never understand.

Are you a woman? Guessing not. Do you know the pain of not being able to breastfeed? It is not child abuse if you are giving your child sustenance and if they are happy.

Most of the children and myself were formula fed back in 70's and 80's. I'm sure formula was way worse back then. I graduated college, wrote a book of poetry, and I am hardly ever sick. If the woman who is breastfeeding is eating crap food like takeout, junk food, soda, how good can that be for the child versus formula which has consistent vitamins and nutrients.

 Quoting: seer


Actually it is perfectly natural for men to want to suck on breasts. We know as a medical fact that the nerves, synapses, and tendencies never go away from the baby instincts. And that's in all healthy well adjusted men.

Breasts are for babies. But they are also for men. Breasts are ALSO a sexual organ with nerves directly linked to the vagina. It is why, if you are a healthy woman, you get hot in the ass when a man sucks your tits.

Re: did you give your baby FORMULA instead of your breast milk
formula is not the best thing for the baby same as junk food is not the best thing for your teenager. Yet some of teenagers eat junk food everyday and end up being fine and healthy all throughout their adult life.

However MOST teenagers that will eat this way will have tendency to be obese or/and develop health complications and diseases later in life.

You're setting up your child for life and if you want the best for them, that includes breastfeeding. Not because the research says so, but because it's common sense. The reason why we even survived as species lies within things like breastfeeding amongst others. It's not a cure-all, but it sure puts the odds on your side. Big time.

So breastfeed your kid, and if you're having trouble, seek help from those who can help you. Unfortunately from most of us, the 60's, 70's, 80's, etc. generation, we won't find help in our mothers that formula fed us, or some of our friends that did the same, because they probably didn't look too far either and they will, at best, reassure you that you did your best. There's no harm in surrendering and giving your child the formula.

"You're a mommy, you're tired, you deserve it."

And who speaks for your child? I'll tell you who: YOU SHOULD. Find the strength inside you to have an honest conversation with yourself. Don't settle for ok, settle for the best. Because you're a mom. Because you're strong. And you can break the cycle and nurture a future generation of amazing human beings that will healthier, stronger, closer to their mom, respectful to women, grow up to be amazing moms, all in all better outlook for all of us out there.

And no, formula is not evil. The pharmaceutical companies pushing formula on healthy, breastfeeding-capable moms, are evil. Formula is a great life saver for the few babies that don't have other options. Most babies have other options, please make the right choice for them.

Re: did you give your baby FORMULA instead of your breast milk
my wife breast fed both kids.

Formula kids will get sick often, ear infections, et cetera.

Breast fed kids will have a much better immune system. They can't put WBC's and Antibodies in formula like a mommy can. And have them be compatible with the childs blood type and immune system.

So don't tell me formula is just as good.


Also, they make breast pumps, in case your kid won't latch. They are a pain in the ass but much easier than even breast feeding.

The only reason I can see for formula, these days, if is the mom isn't producing.

Also, you want a sure fire, fast way to lose your preggo weight??? Breast pump or breast feed, it basically sucks the fat out of you and puts it in your baby. my wife has lost 50 lb in 3 months, and is back to her fighting weight in 4 months. When you look at the milk she makes, it actually has cream on the top....

People saying formula is just as good are CLUELESS!

Re: did you give your baby FORMULA instead of your breast milk
Mothers feel guilty enough for decisions that they make- you don't need to add any more guilt to the matter. I think that it is well-known that breast milk is healthier. The 'breast is best' campaign is everywhere.

I could not breastfeed my eldest daughter. I began to and then she started vomit\ting and pooping blood. They suspected a milk allergy. I stopped all milk products. She still lost weight. We started a soy formula. She continued to vomit blood. We began a protein based formula (Nutramigen). She was now nearly half of her birth weight, and, continued vomiting blood. We were sent to a specialist with limited hope. As a last resort, she was placed on an amino-acid formula that was special made and perscription only. She began to gain weight - RAPIDLY- and, was 32 pounds at a year. she is now 14 and at the top of her class academically, involved in sports, and a very sweet girl.

My youngest daughter was never breast fed and just turned 7. She reads on a 6th grade level and knows nearly everything. LOL. She works with a specialist that comes just to her school for her until she is old enough to join the 'gifted and talented' program. She hasn't suffered from being formula-fed. I am sure there are plenty of breast fed babies in her grade that read at grade level.

Not trying to say anything bad about people who HAVE to use formula.


People who CHOOSE to for convenience... I just kinda shake my head.


I don't think man could do much better than God does, though many here might argue that... SMH.

The big thing that bugs me is the amount of flouride in formula, and also, it's mostly corn syrup, and other adjuvants to be digestible... probably a lot of GMO crap in it too.


No one is trying to make anyone feel bad here. BUT, by all means, if you can breast feed, please do!

I think you might be on the defensive

if you already gave your child formula, don't stress about it and feel guilty. That will help no one. You can however change anything happening from this point on. Help your baby, help your friends, help your daughters.

Baby gets a lot of stuff they can't process in the formula. Their poop smells like adult poop and the amounts coming out are way too much. Breastfed babies' poop barely smells and they can process most of it.

Formula is the first junk food. Your baby will grow, just like cows on growth hormones. Formula fed babies might even look stronger and bigger. But their fate will be in line with those of the cattle. I know, strong imagery. And I know what I'm talking about. I pay my dues today, being a formula fed baby myself. My child will however have a better fate than me. At least if I can help it in any way.
