I am sorry that you had to use formula for your baby and happy that you sill get to breastfeed. I however I don't think that I would have to use formula even if that such thing came up. I firmly believe that there are other ways to "suppliment" without giving formula.
I don't want to get into that, but I will say that I in NO WAY added guilt to mammas who couldn't/ didn't BF. It is a choice to give your child formula and until you mentioned it, I didn't bring it up.
I am sorry if you took my saying that formula was forbidden as a reason that you or anyone else should feel guilty about a decision to feed formula, whatever be the situation. I didn't mean to hurt your feelings but for now, formula is on my no no list.
That being said, when my son was small, I did ALLOW the Dr. to give him formula when he had jaundice. I didn't know any better and now I do so that is where I stand.
When you know better, you are expected to do better.

ummmm.... can't think of any.
I'm a big believer in moderation in all things. I can't think of a single food I've forbidden (I don't count formula as I think of that more as a medication, but no, dd never had any- but of course I would have used it if there were medical reason)

Excuse me if this is a dumb question, but what is wrong with soy milk? We just switched to soy milk because we think DS might have a milk allergy, and we both love it.
Nothing from an animal (except for honey in baked goods, a compromise with my husband). Anything vegan is good to go after age 1 in our home.
However, we also avoid:
- hydrogenated oils
- high fructose corn syrup
- processed soy protein (except on rare occasions, ie. holidays)
Oh, and absolutely nothing from McDonald's, ever. (Heck, we won't even use their bathrooms!)
