I thought breast fed babies are supposedly healthier than formula babies ???? Why is it I have several friends that thier babies are seriously sick right now and they are breast fed ?
I formula feed my 4 month old and my 3 year old was Formula fed as well and they were never sick with more than sniffles.
To me that shows it doesn't mean BF babies are healthier than FF babies.

Human milk is the standard by which formula is trying to achieve for very important reasons. Not the other way around. http://aappolicy.aappublications.org/cgi/content/full/pediatrics;100/6/1035
It's the main reason that I think it is absolutely apalling that women who formula feed are often forced to choose formula based on price rather than on which has the most elements or the most easily digestible. ALL formula should be held to the same standard of easier digestion, rather than someone having to just go with one that causes more gas or constipation or upset stomachs because they can't afford another type. I think that's apalling of businesses.
