artificial feeding

who came up w/ this term, artificial feeding? i'm pretty sure it was made up by a breastfeeding/anti-formula mother, but just curious who? who decided that children who are not breastfed are "artificially" fed? i'm not interested in WHY someone thinks the term is okay, i want to know who came up with it.

  • I believe the World Health Organization came up with it...not a mom...but it is what it is.

    Artificial sweeteners, artificial insemination...artificial anything...it just isn't something that is naturally occurring.

  • i wasnt aware of having to have a homebirth = only way to be 'natual' ...
    for me, natural means laboring without any drugs..

  • Well it IS artificial feeding. It's imitation breast milk (formula), imitation milk ducts (bottle), and imitation nipple/areola (rubber or silicone).

    I think the term "breastfeeding nazi" is WAY worse than "artificial feeder".
