    I didn’t know this. I wanted to nurse naturally but my mother and sister talked me out of it telling me my boobs would be all saggy and ugly before my time. I didn’t know formula was crap. Probably better to give baby cream .

    Infant formula is clearly inferior to mother’s milk, but there are times where mother’s milk is not available, and infant formula is preferable to starvation. I would think that there would be a market for a superior infant formula to be sold at health food stores, but I don’t know if such a product is available. It certainly wasn’t available over six decades ago when my mother needed it for me.

    The reason people do this is because they are irresponsible idiots who don’t like to think.

    People don’t understand there is a big difference between breast-fed people and bottle-fed people. Breast-fed people are a lot smarter, stronger and more competent than bottle-fed people, all other factors being the same. You pay now or you pay later. People like bottle feeding their kid because it’s a lot easier than breast feeding, and there isn’t the attachment to the kid. So a bottle-fed kid is easier to raise. The bottle-fed kid will tend to be dumb and cowlike, and are easier to push around for the irresponsible parent, looking for the easy way out. So more damage can be done to the kid, since they are not smart enough to stand up for themselves. But it should be understood that because a bottle-fed kid is dumb, care has to be taken raising, and educating them. Instead, the parents of an ugly, awkward bottle-fed kid often won’t feel care for them, they just want the ugly kid out of their sight. So this bottle-fed kid who was so easy when young, can grow to have problems finding their way in the world. Breast-fed parents and grandparents will be astounded to discover that skills won’t come effortlessly for a dumb, bottle-fed kid, like it did for them, and will comment on this incessantly. You ever wonder why immigrants are usually more competent than Americans in the demanding professions? Look at the top surgeons now. It’s because most of them are breast-fed a long time. A breast-fed kid will be better cared for than a bottle-fed kid, too. That’s a big factor.

    comicsssfan: Care to cite any actual clinical studies?

    There were studies done in Australia and New Zealand and in the UK. The longer the mother breast feeds, the smarter and better behaved the kid is. Take a look at someone breast fed a long time. Personally, I rely on their judgement, if I can trust them.

    Bloomberg has infant formula under lock and key now. The formula companies are too agressive. It has to be proved the mother can’t breast feed.
