  • Not any formula feeding moms, but I'm sure you'll get plenty of responses from breastfeeding moms warning you about the 'poison' that is formula *rolls eyes*

  • Nothing recently. The only thing I can think of is that I read that powdered is safer than liquid just because BPA can't seep from the container into the powder only into the liquid...but I think most manufacturers are moving away from containers with BPA anyway.

  • I am a breastfeeding mom and don't see any problem with people giving babies formula. Please don't lump us all together.

  • The BPA thing in the liquid cans is all I've ever heard really.

  • Only that they found a chemical used to make rocket fuel in certain formulas, BUT, they didnt release which ones and are trying to say trace amounts wont hurt anything and that its also in the drinking water so breastfed babies would also be exposed to it, just in lesser amounts and they say the issue comes when the tainted formula is mixed with the tainted water because that is increased exposure to the formula fed infant.
