    Default Re: Formula compared to AIDS.. Thoughts?

    What a stupid thing to say. I would have walked out in disgust. Glad the president of the Aba is looking into it.

    Total garbage.

    Default Formula compared to AIDS.. Thoughts?

    They neglected to mention that the statistics were worldwide (including countries who don't have clean water)? Disgraceful scaremongering.

    Some people will say anything to prove that breast is best, but this goes way too far. Think of all the mums terrified about not succeeding at breastfeeding after hearing that kind of information?

    Women really don't need this kind of pressure placed on them.

    Default Formula compared to AIDS.. Thoughts?

    I think she needs a brain transplant. I'd love for someone like her to make a comment when I was ff dd.

    It's really doing her cause a disservice too because I'd be hesitant to call the ABA next baby if I think I have any chance of getting advice of that mental case. I really mean that!

    Are the claims non-factual?

    The drs statement is questionable
    "There are better ways to try to explain the benefits of breastmilk," paediatric and child health division president Susan Moloney said.
    "We highly support breastfeeding. It is the optimal form of nutrition for any human infant. But in the cases where it isn't able to be done, formula feeding is safe in Australia."
    There are risks in using formula, even in Australia.

    Default WTF?! Formula is like aids?!

    I think this is disgusting. As much as most of us would like to breastfeed, sometimes it's just not possible.

    And there is certainly many more positive ways to encourage breastfeeding.

    Well a quick google search (admittedly not my most thorough research) showed that the 'risks' spoken about are a fairly low percentage and I think you'd have to be off your rocker to compare it to AIDS. Or a moron.

    Totally inappropriate and irrelevant to formula feeding in Australia.

    It's individuals like this who give the ABA a bad name. I hope she gets axed.
