    Missie Mack, there's giving facts, but you need to give the full picture when you do so. I would imagine a good chunk of that class had little idea about the contributing factors to that statistic, so it would only be contributing to misplaced fear and formula-hate.

    Default not so helpful advice from the ABA - all threads merged

    I agree the thread has got a little derailed....but the study says decreased hospital visits in developed countries- death is not mentioned.
    Nor does it state that formula kills rather other factors water contamination, hygiene, etc the information is being wrongly interpreted.

    I'm not disputing breast is best, but no where does it say formula kills!!

    Show me one stat on deaths related to baby formula in Australia. No scratch that - I bet you can't. I bet that you would find that it be cases of neglect rather than caused by the actual formula.

    There is nothing in that unicef link that says anything about deaths in Australia related to formula. Where are you getting that?

    Some people are so blinded by breastfeeding as being the *only* way that they can't even see that in some cases formula is needed, and in some cases it is actually the optimal food for some babies.

    That woman who did that in the ABA needs to be stood down and the ABA needs to totally detach from her in all ways possible, if they want to save their credibility that is.

    I have never ever in au, the us or Europe heard a baby died of formula, it is a ludicrous claim!
