    I was in this situation & used formula (and expressed).

    Don't think I would use donor milk, iv read some things in the Internet (I know, not very reliable) but it seems abit hit and miss.

    Tho if my child was prem or had serious health issues when born, I would do more research and consider donor milk

    The UN has a massive project underway to get Mothers in developing countries to get babies back on bm, and off of the formula. Because it isn't safe.
    Leaving aside for the moment the fact that your entire post was ridiculous, I feel compelled to highlight this point.

    The UN is doing this for women in developing countries because the conditions in which they have to prepare the formula are inadequate eg. restricted/no access to clean water in suitable amounts. This is why it isn't 'safe' for formula to be used there - not because the formula itself is unsafe.

    As opposed to milk meant for or made from an entirely different species?

    Arrggh. After reading more about the unethical practises by formula companies in developing countries, I would move heaven and earth to not use formula on purely ethical grounds. I never want to put money into the pockets of those nasty greedy ba$tards!

    It's such a weird thing hey? I'm the same. Logically, I know it's totally irrational. Heck it's completely weird as a lactating mother for me to drink cows milk because I absolutely get where it's coming from.

    But. Yeah. I guess. If human Breast milk was in the fridge section of the supermarket and chemists, readily available and a comparable price to formula I'd suck up and by the human Breast milk.

    Agreed. It's interesting which milks are considered "ok" and which aren't. My DP won't touch goats milk, but loves cows milk, whereas my kids don't really care - milk is milk to them!

    I've heard Donkey and mare milks are more similar to human milk than cow's milk, but I must admit I'd feel strange about weaning my kids from bm to donkey milk (...but cows milk is fine lol)

    Ha same. Or like.... Cats or dogs milk. But I'd be fine with cows or goats.

    Assuming no medical probs requiring formula, your DD (pre formula days) would have likely been wet nursed. I think AM is referring to what nestle did in Africa.
