Thank you for sharing your story, Elaine. This really hit home for me as I am a new mom with a 7 day old baby. There is such a stigma attached to formula but the wellbeing of our health and our children’s health needs to come first and I don’t know if the "authority" figures realize the damage they cause by fiercely advocating one over the other.

I’m sorry you had to go through that experience with your daughter.
