It really would be nice if sites such as yours would appreciate the hard work done by many volunteers and healthcare professionals to promote breastfeeding, and follow the World Health Organisation's guidelines on formula promotion and advertising. I appreciate that by posting this you may have felt that you were being helpful to parents but from my perspective, you've just lost a reader.

Asha - Thanks for posting this. Thank you for helping some of us save some money during this time of spending. Unfortunately we're using different brands than these.

Yvonne - not everyone who uses formula does it because they don't want to breastfeed. My wife and I would have prefered to have our daughter breastfed, but it was physically impossible.

Even folks that do choose to do it for personal reasons that I don't think you should discount.

Yvonne: One of the central themes of this site is that there is more than one right way to do most things. I find that the choices I make as a parent are rarely a simple matter of black and white, right/wrong, and I respect the diversity of my readers enough to reflect that here.

Some babies need formula to survive. And if you have any you can't use, such as an unwanted sample pack, please consider sending it to the folks at www.familiassaludables.org, who are trying to prevent mother to child HIV transmission among a desperately poor population on an island of Honduras.

And it would be nice if posters such as the one above would respect the work done by adoptive parents such as myself. Adoptive breastfeeding is possible in some situations, but not ours. Formula costs a ton of money - so thanks, parenthacks editors, for helping adoptive parents find a bargain.
