    Wow.  In the UK it is illegal to advertise infant formula for babies 6 months and under (i.e. "toddler" milks can be advertised, but not the suitable from birth category).  It's a pity no-one can afford a lawsuit for breastmilk - i'm pretty sure it's been clinically proven to improve eye and brain development!!!

    Thanx for posting this, Susan.

    Heres how I feel on this.

    Formula should prescription only

    Should it be available by prescription only or keep it the way it has been ever since it came available to the masses? Basically, I what I mean is when breastfeeding didn't work, and a mom has tried everything in order to be successful at it, or had a medical or other reason for being unable to breastfeed?

    I'm all for prescription formula because then the breastfeeding rates will go up and formula rates will go down.
