Quoting snglemama:" ok... so it's proven, medical fact that breast milk is best for a child.. so if a prent feeds junk food ... [snip!] ... to judge.. but if a parent chooses not to try to breast feed.. knowing it's the best thing for a baby... it's not ok to judge?"
There is a difference in feeding them the best foods and the worst. Formula is not the worst thing you can give a newborn.... nothing but sweet tea and junk is the worst you can give to your kid.
Some people cannot BF or they choose not to for selfish reasons, who cares, they are still feeding their child something that is beneficial.
It's cheaper and easier to just give your kid cow's milk from the beginning.... I'd judge that, but not formula.
