    Yep, I reckon it is used to inflame.

    Doctors, midwives, everybody I know calls it formula. I've never heard artificial milk until bh. It's shorter to write formula. Maybe the aba do use the term on their website, but I don't have very fond memories of them when I was seeking help with my daughter. They were rude and unhelpful.

    I've never heard of artificial milk until BH either, and I have accessed the ABA (who called it formula), have used middies, MCN and drs with my 2 kids.

    It's a shame bc it just further widens the divide between mothers.

    It's like the term spontaneous abortion being used for miscarriage. Ok, it might be the medical term and professionals use it, but there is absolutely no point using that term in day to day life, not least because it sounds horrible. Everyone knows what miscarriage means in terms of losing a baby.
    Everyone knows what formula means in the context of feeding a baby. I can't imagine why anyone not in a professional capacity or setting would use it unless they had an agenda. That's what is offensive about it- it's a loaded term.

    It sounds stupid.

    This type of talk irritates me. I ff my DD and she is a wonderful, beautiful, thriving, healthy little girl.

    My comment is probably a little weird and off topic, but it's silly. And I'm having a **** day

    Thats the thing that i dont get, Its not a term they use in childrens hospital they use the term BMS ( breast milk substitute ) all the labels in the feeds fridge have on them BMS for breast milk substitute, EBM expressed breast milk, then all the script stuff is labbeled with its actually name the baby formula is all labbeled as BMS,
    Artificial baby milk is just a name that people on here use to make other feel like cr*p

    Ive only heard the term used by people who were very pro breastfeeding and using it to criticise formula, so in that sense I think its inflammatory.

    Ive heard people say nasty things to friends who had to stop breastfeeding for medical reasons (severely allergic bub) like 'so you are going to feed your baby poison'? Well actually her milk was poisoning the baby

    BTW Ive never ever used formula

    At the time dd was born, I was asked if I would like to use the nursery and allow ABM to be given. ABM = Artificial Baby Milk.
