Formula feeding has many risks
by Alexandria Hand


April 12, 2005

I just would like to let you know how wrong Glassman is. Breastfeeding is the best food for a baby, nothing man made can compare. The risks of formula feeding are many.

I also want to let you know that a woman can pursue an career outside the home AND breastfeed. I AM working full time out of the home AND breastfeeding. I am proud to be a working mother and breastfeed, more women should.

It is possable if the woman wants to give her child the very best, breast milk. Formula does not give freedom, it is more work.

I just don't see the correlation between making breastfeeding the "norm" and putting woman back into the Dark Ages. Woman were created to nurish there children from the breast, not to feed it some weak inferior substitute. That's what breasts are for, to feed children.

I think Glassman should look further into the formula vs. breastfeeding issue and he will see quite clearly the truth.

Thank you,
