YES ! FORMULA IS ANIMAL MILK and it can be contaminated!!

I am amazed by the sheer number of people who get surprized when I tell them that formula milk is animal milk. So people please know that formula milk is dried -powdered animal milk. Also it is NOT  a sterile powder, Yes you read it right….It is NOT Sterile …..Many a times bacterial contaminants ( and others as well) have been found in Formula milk boxes of multiple formula companies. Read more about it (contamination).

The way formula is portrayed knowingly or unknowingly in our society, most families believe it to be a good thing  a saviour ! A very sad state of affairs indeed because our money and  resources are being wasted in formula feeding. An ideal state of affairs would be where the hospital budget allocated for Formula, fuel, cleanwater etc is deviated towards training their staff ( Doctors , Nurses)  in the art and skill of breastfeeding support.
