At PMH the childrens hospital in WA its called BMS which stands for breast milk substitute I think that names is perfect, they call all of the normal baby milks that and then the script milks like Elecare and neocate and vivonex they call them by name and for weird ones like my daughters they label it with the script so hers now would be vivonex/ d10/ NA/ K
I dont think the term artificial is inflammatory in general but it depends on how it is being said

Or we could be like my inlaws and call it "normal milk"
Awesome in the sentence I heard often "so when are you going to give jasper normal milk"

I think breastmilk substitute is more sensible and less inflammatory really. In every day conversations though, its still just easier to say formula. I don't think using the term formula does breastmilk any disservice.

To me it's 'my sons food' - it's food, it nourishes him - he's definitely not being artificially nourished.
I can understand how some people might feel antagonised by it being used in certain contexts.

To answer the OP, no its not offensive to me. What is offensive is ppl hiding behind their computers trying to use words like "artifical milk" to antagonise mothers online who are feeding their babies. I call them artificial losers
