I know we have talked the health risks to baby, to mom, the studies, the statistics - but today I thought we could talk about the every day risks of using formula.
Things like finding foreign objects inside your baby's formula, like rusty springs or bug parts. Manufacturing errors, not enough fat or other nutrients. Bacterial contamination. Boil orders or other problems with the water used to mix. Changes and "improvements" to the formula - are they safe for your baby? Tampering with the cans on store shelves. Improper preparation?
If you are hyper-viligent about preparation and safety - and know that your baby is always safe - does it matter that other formula-fed babies might not be safe?
