FDA finds traces of melamine in US infant formula(AP News)
I'm so glad I never got a chance to go the route of formula bottlefeeding. I would be so freaked out right now if my only choice was bottlefeed with formula. What can you do?
There were a few times when she did take the bottle she got a a few oz of it, but definitely breastfed for more than a year. But even then it was the pre-mixed formula which were available in glass bottles(however with probably BPA lined tops). It's quite a challenge to be a parent these days and trust these big name companies to look out for our children's welfare.
I'm starting to wean her and it's not too difficult since she's eating alot more solids and enjoys drinking kefir. She doesn't care too much for cow's milk. I'll try to get her on goat's milk since it has more calcium and magnesium.
I urge my family and friends who are going to get pregnant or is pregnant, to really consider breastfeeding your baby(or at least pump as long as you can) just so you can reduce your child's exposure to these types of harmful chemicals.
