who was formula fed as a child?

i was, and i was also high school salutatorian and i hardly get sick. i am not a statistic. however i also have really smart genes and im motivated and my IQ is 140 (i took a real test through my psychologist not an internet one asking when the summer Olympics are *eye roll*)

i guess im just so amazing, or there were brain steroids in my formula :]

  • I was formula fed as well and although I stayed sick (nothing to do with formula docs say) I am also very intelligent I've never taken a IQ test to prove it though. And my son is also formula fed and in the 19 months he's been on this earth he has never been sick except for a few fevers after a shot and the common cold. And he too is smart beyond his years. FORMULA FED BABIES ROCK!!!

  • I was but I think I would be better if I had been breastfed. I think you can't aruge that though. How can you measure what your IQ would have been if you'd been bf'd? Or if you'd had an even closer relationship with your mother, or if you'd been a little more healthy. There just is not way to measure this after the fact.

  • i was formula fed, and am also pretty smart. but the human body is amazing in what it can do. i chose to BF my children and i hope it will make them even smarter than me... but no matter what we are healthy and that is what matters. i personally thing Bf is best just because that is what God gave us, just like any animal, if you have ever seen a cow or anything that is BF and one that is FF the FF is much smaller, but thank goodness that in humans it doesn't seem to pose such a big impact. i don't think anyone would say that just because you were FF that you will turn out stupid.
