    I know. I'm so sorry And my lavender isn't organic either

    Hormones are the problem here. Those stupid hormones cause me pain. At least they aren't artificial as when I had the IUD.

    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.

    I agree, we all know they aren't the same and bm is preferable. Calling it formula is what it is - a combination or formula of different ingredients.

    Well my DH would probably suggest a good shag could fix any pain. Nothing artificial about that

    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
