Don't listen to these haters. They know that intelligence is mostly genetic anyways. They are trying to convince themselves doing this will make their baby smarter. Whatever helps them sleep at night.

Absolutely. Well said!

These freaking threads kill me. "I'm a better parent than you because blah-blah-blah"

All parents have to make decisions for what works best for their children. People need to get off their pedestals and realize there is no ONE right way. What works for you does not necessarily work for someone else.

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.

you're a special case. And I am extremely glad that formula helped your child. That's exactly what it's for. A case like yours. Except, those account for less than 1%. However, I doubt even 40% of babies are breast fed.

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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11369766


What research? Every study that I have ever seen proves that breast milk fed babies are smarter and healthier. They also prove that mothers who breast feed have many beneficial side effects. (Lower breast cancer rates, better post baby weight loss.)
 Quoting: samanthasunflower


Knew a lady who breastfed 5 babies and still got breast cancer. My cousins were breastfed as well and the one barely graduated. I'm just not buying it. Food is food. My baby has been formula fed for many months now and she just copied me slapping my hand on the ground. 5 1/2 months old! I think that is pretty darn good.

Sometimes an honest conversation is better than pretending everything is AOK. It's not about fighting. It's about a mom, looking on the internet at 2h00am in the morning after her baby finally fell asleep and her breasts are sore and she's standing at the crossroads. You either tell her to go ahead and do "what's best" for herself and baby. Or you actually point her to a better, sustainable direction. Which I'm sorry, formula is not. Giving formula every once in a while to get a continuous 8h of sleep for mommy is not recommended, but not the end of the world every once in a while. Giving formula at every meal for 6 months and be prepared to see your kids battling disease way too early in their adult life in the best case scenario. Let me say that again: BEST CASE SCENARIO.

You could not be more wrong because if there is just ONE account of a formula-fed baby being healthy for 18 years and beyond, then your "theory" is debunked. Plain and simple. And those factual stories abound. So . . . theory debunked.

And what makes you think you are qualified to make such an ignorantly definitive statement here or anywhere else, when you could not possibly know the personal accounts of billions of mothers and babies over the past several decades?

What amazes me about all you bf fanatics, is that you completely IGNORE the FACT that children who are thrown into daycare and public schools are more likely to be sick than children who never go to daycare and are homeschooled. THAT topic matters a hell of a lot more than the tiresome bf vs. formula debate.

If you want to label who is a good mother or bad mother, concern yourself with the numerous and negative influences innocent children have to deal with during their school years because their mothers don't believe motherhood is a career and CHOOSE to work outside the home and let their children fend for themselves much of the time.

Re: did you give your baby FORMULA instead of your breast milk
and suppose that poor, tired mommy chain smokes a pack a day, drinks diet sodas all day, eats only mcdonald's, smokes weed or worse, takes anti-depressants, pops an occasional xanax once or twice a day, etc.

that must make for some tasty, healthy breast milk, huh? but doesn't matter bc it is the best no matter what!

there is not just one answer here. breastfeeding works for some people and doesn't for others. and that's ok! there are no major differences. in fact, i urge you to point out people who were breastfed vs bottle fed. oh right, you can't.

and i'm sorry, but loving and nurturing and bonding with your baby is not just the domain of breastfeeding mothers. i mean, seriously? you really believe that? how sad and narrow-minded of you.

and for the record, i breastfed. but guess what? it didn't make me or my kids any better than the neighbor that bottle fed. i mean, really. it's embarrassing how foolish some of you are.

My kid asks for the breast when on the playground. So what? She has no preconceptions of what's acceptable in YOUR view of the society. She just knows what's natural to her.

Oh and lastly, since the basic biology escapes your and you're mind goes right to the direction of the gutter, by tightening, the poster implied the tightening of the internal muscles and structures to diminish blood loss and after-birth complications in that general area.

STOP promoting the ridiculously obsessive propaganda about breast feeding and demeaning those who, for whatever reasons which are NONE of your business, give their babies formula.
 Quoting: itsamadmadworld



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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7338745



A lot of this is due to colostrum. Genetics has a lot to play on whether or not the kids had healthy parents. I too seen kids getting breast fed and having ear infections as well as kids getting formula that had ear infections. Did the kids get all their injections and antibiotics? This in itself could be the reason for being sickly.

Then there is the question of if the momma can make milk. If she can't and mine couldn't, then formula is your only recourse, unless you want to deal with getting a doe goat and keeping her in the backyard. Rather than getting Similac, consider getting both colostrum and dried milk replacer from the feed store, and choose something that closely matches human mother's milk or even look for a wet nurse. One thing formula doesn't give is the colostrum, and this can result in the child growing a new shirt size no matter how adult they are when they finally get it.

you're right, let's ask the pharmaceutical companies for some of the studies on the subject. That should be objective. Or you meant the objective government studies with pharma lobbyists as their chairmen?

Here is an objective study for you. Guess what? They couldn't get any pharmaceutical company to look at their findings. At least the cancer society decided to fund their research. No worries, it will probably be shut down as soon as it starts gaining some momentum.

my daughter is 2.5yrs old, speaks three languages and plays well with others. So? It's not as much about being smart. That's mostly genetics.

Re: did you give your baby FORMULA instead of your breast milk
no. I breastfed but after they weaned I made my own homemade formula that was hypoallergenic and way better than anything on the shelves.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17522961


I did all three. My first child I used formula. He is aspergers, probably from the vaccines. My second child, I had to pump breast milk, and supplement with formula, he was hospitalized from birth with many health related issues. He passed away. My third child I breastfed until I weaned him. Then I used home made formula. He is very healthy and very tall for his age. My third child was exclusively breast fed. He has MD, which is genetic, has nothing to do with formula or breast feeding. Of all the types. I think breastfeeding is best. My youngest children (mostly breastfed) seldom had an ear infection, a cold, or other sicknesses. My oldest was exclusively formula fed, and had more issues with ear infections, and colds.

Re: did you give your baby FORMULA instead of your breast milk
Mistake number one is not allowing the baby to attempt breastfeeding the very moment it is birthed...instead they stick a pacifier in it's mouth (causing nipple confusion, which later causes un-neccesary nipple pain and latching problems) and take it away from the mother to prematurely cut it's cord, wipe it down, shove things in it's nose, ears, mouth, prick it, prode it, rub shit in its eyes, etc..none of this is medically necessary immediately after birth.


I have a hard time believing so many women "can't" produce milk. The reality is they won't, not can't..it takes several days of (typically) intense pain before any milk even comes in, most women give up before it even comes it...or they simply never ever try to breastfeed. And the pain doesn't end there. The truth is breastfeeding is not glamorous, easy or even particularly enjoyable for most women. When formula is used purely for convenience-sake is saddening..pushed by MDs/big pharma..it's sick.

This is an absolute travesty...doctors use fear tactics on new and vulnerable mothers by telling them their baby is not getting "enough" and they push sugar water and/or formula before even letting the woman's body respond to their new baby, it's disgraceful.

The fact is babies need a miniscule amount of colostrum the first few days and most women are frightened by the fact that they don't have milk immediately because they are uneducated about the process of labor, birth and breast-feeding.

I really can't fathom choosing formula simply because I "didn't" want to...I didn't want to push a 9lb baby out..when you become a parent it isn't about you anymore, it never will be again.

I would die for my children, sacrificing my tits for a year is nothing..

Enjoy being a sheeple, do you?

THINK for yourself instead of parroting junk talk with no substance.



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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16764653


Uh, yeah, we've all been seeing how much of a "bond" it creates via the much-publicized "mothers" who bf kids who run in from the playground and ask for it.

Those women clearly have mental and emotional issues and their parenting abilities and rights should be legally questioned.


It also tightens her vagina faster after the trauma of birth.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16764653


omg. How disturbing that ANY woman would think about that in connection to bf.
 Quoting: itsamadmadworld

You were mislead so forgive yourself. many have been misled, including some of my closest friends who are wonderful loving people.

You can clearly see a difference between the 2 types of children. breast fed are healthier.

FYI, sheeple use formula, you got it backwards.

formula is full of poison, research it.

NO ONE "misled" me . . . I know the facts.

Your claims are without valid basis.

Stop judging what you don't know.

Re: did you give your baby FORMULA instead of your breast milk
My kid asks for the breast when on the playground. So what? She has no preconceptions of what's acceptable in YOUR view of the society. She just knows what's natural to her.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7338745


OMG. And you admit that.

Very disturbing.

If it is "natural" to her, it is because YOU brainwashed her emotionally while keeping her physically attached to you and your, whatever they may be, emotional problems.

ANY female who bfs beyond a very few months is then doing it for HERSELF - not the child.

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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11369766


Human breast milk caused eczema and digestive issues? Or did it happen after switching over to cow's milk, which will cause that in any child. Cow's milk is only good for baby cows. After weaning, humans need no milk at all.

Re: did you give your baby FORMULA instead of your breast milk
BF shouldn't go past the time the child eats solid food.

That point is moot, it's common sense. SO, just stop it, if you're bitching at someone for doing it, stop, and if you're doing it, stop.


Also, common sense dictates that breast milk is much healthier for the child if the mother has two brain cells to rub together and only intake the essential proteins/fats/carbs/fatty acids/vitamins/trace minerals. This is what I would want to feed my child. If the mother is a meth head, by all means, use formula (sorry if harsh).


cmon folks, there's so much grey area in this topic. If you have your shit together, and can BF, then DO!. But realize when the child can eat what you do, then DON'T!

If you can't, then DON'T, b/c you CAN'T.



How hard is that to understand??

Re: did you give your baby FORMULA instead of your breast milk
This thread is absurd.

NO ONE has the right to dictate things like this to others and those of you making these offensive judgments about mothers who choose to use formula should be ashamed.

And a suggestion for those who have emotionally trained (brainwashed) your children, who are big enough to be walking around or playing outside, into believing that it's "natural" for them to come to you and ASK to breastfeed: get help.

whatever keeps your guilt in check. There is nothing to admit here. It's like admitting I drink water. I ADMIT! Sure, and if it is natural for your kid to think the yummy genetically engineered cowburger you feed him/her is as good for their health.... well, let's just hope intelligence is not all genetic. I will give you a minute to think about that one.
