There are 2 definitions of 'artificial'. One is simply 'man made' - which refers to most food products that we consume (and most things that we use in day to day life). The other definition is 'not genuine'.
So, yes, formula is man made, and it is not genuine breast milk. No argument there.
My argument is that most products we consume are man made, and it is therefore irrelevant to stick 'artificial' in front of everything that technically qualifies for that description.
Formula is not the same as breast milk, it is an alternative to breast milk. Therefore to say it isn't breast milk also seems redundant to me. We don't habitually label everything on the basis of whether it is man made or not, nor on the basis of what things it does NOT qualify as. Therefore it is not necessary to do so for formula.
Formula can be made up of many things, and not all formulas include cow milk. 'Formula' is a perfectly adequate description.

Seriously nothing never changes around here hey, the divide between how one feeds and how one births, for goodness sake, there is more to life, there is more to being a mum. Why oh why is there always this cr*p on here to make some feel better and some feed worse.
