Sorry, I don't believe that for an instant. If they don't market it to infants, then why isn't it called "Toddler's Only" or something? Why are their infants all over their website. I think there's some reason why they choose not to label it for infants, likely some reason associated with costs to them.

My point was that its not always avalible to a parent. There was non avalible for us with DD#1 so we used formula. When your in that situation there is no real choice. Its FF or the baby doesn't eat.

Good gracious!
I was just pointing out that if someone asked me about formula, I would ask them if they had tried to find donor milk yet.
MilkShare milk (just an example) is FREE. The only cost is shipping. Last time I checked, there were many mamas looking to donate considerable amounts of milk. And priority shipping is available all over the US (making dry ice not even necessary in most cases). If you live in Canada, you could try to find someone in Canada to ship.
My point is, breastmilk banks are NOT the only sources of donor milk! That's such a misconception.

not everyone is comfortable with accepting milk for their babies of essentially unknown provenance. You don't know everything the donor took (blood tests are only a snapshot), and you don't know how the milk was handled. And unlike milkbank milk, the milk itself has not been screened.

We're getting a little off-topic. Normally, this wouldn't be a problem, but since Lactivism is a fairly specialized forum to begin with, I am going to ask that those who wish to discuss donor milk, when to recommend it, its safety, etc, please start a new thread in the general breastfeeding forum, and that this thread please be used to answer the OP's questions about the WHO-code and formula advertising. Any further off-topic posting will be removed.

Thanks!
Annette

No problem! I know conversations tend to meander. We're just trying to keep the thread/forum on topic.

What about some store brands? I hope that's not a dumb question.

For example, there's a store called Wegman's in my region (NY and PA) which sells an organic formula. No pictures of any sort of the can, never advertised as far as I know.

I'd love to have this info for future use, thanks!!
From the Baby Milk Action website:
Quote:
Protecting babies fed on formula

Breastmilk substitutes are legitimate products for when a child is not breastfed and does not have access to expressed or donor breastmilk. Companies should comply with composition and labelling requirements and other Code requirements to reduce risks - independently of government measures. Parents have a right to accurate, independent information.

Baby Milk Action is not anti-baby milk. Our work protects all mothers and infants from irresponsible marketing.
This page:

also talks about what I mentioned in my previous post.
