Is breast milk better than formula for my child?

The question depends largely upon who you ask, but for all intents and purposes the "breast is best" camp appears have gained the most amount of credibility in this debate. So why is breast milk better than formula?

  • With the exception of dairy-free selections, most baby formula comes from cow’s milk which is less easily digestible than breast milk.
  • Breast milk is known to contain antibodies that help babies develop their immune systems.
  • Breast milk contains more lactose, which has been linked to significant brain development.
