whole BF thing. My sister and I have 3 year olds born 11 days apart. She BF and I FF. Her child has been sick at least 3 times more, with worse symptoms, has allergies, is a HORRIBLE eater, and is over all pretty moody kid. My child is a great eater, not sick very often, and allways happy. And my child is in day care, while hers is not. She is the one that brought this to my attention, and said next one she will FF and skip all the hassle. After she told me this i have been asking and noticing around that FF babies are really no worse off then BF babies, even though BF babies are suppose to have all the benifits..... anyone notice this as well?

Most of the exclusively breastfed kids I know in real life are/were much sicker then my formula fed kids. I have 4 kids and in the 10 years I've been a mom we've had 1 ear infection and one case of the flu. My younger 2 kids (who are 7 and 4) have never seen their doctor for anything but well visits. They only get colds and they never last long or are serious. I don't even have to give them meds for them half the time. My 7yo missed 1 day of school last year for a fake tummy ache. Out of the 4 of them one has allergies (to cats and dogs). They were all 100% formula fed. Most of the breastfed babies I knew were sick all the time and still are. My youngest son was just born on Wed and he's being formula fed, too.
