Mother nature V Greedy companies

Top tens fever is catchy, another topic was needed :)

There are lots of advice on how to breast feed at



For the mother it lowers your risk of getting breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Amazing.

For babies it provides antibodies that it needs to fight infection, increase IQ, and recently shown even better behaviour!

Powered milk doesn't do any of that, drug companies trying to sell something that is not needed in a large scale.

Of course it may not possible to in all cases to breast feed, hence why it was produced as a supplement to help but not to replace it for all. Some companies saw a marketing opportunity and put profit before health.

There are campaigns to boycott some of these companies like Nestle.


When its painful some people find it helpful to use a breast pump and then give the milk via a bottle.

  • It is not disugsting rather very good for babies.
  • There are much more disgusting things babies do :-)
  • It has antibodies from the mother; protects babies.
