    I formula feed my youngest child, but I still find this wrong on so many levels, one thing being ONE serving of it has 19 grams of sugar.  Its like setting children up for issues with weight, obesity, and diabetes.

     She isnt trying to put down breastmilk, she is making a counterpoint to all the people who are saying that the sugar content in the formula is so much higher than breastmilk.

    You are actually supporting her argument, a little sugar in the breastmilk or the formula is not inherently a BAD thing.

    BABIES ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE LOTS OF CALORIES!!!! LOL! Thats why there is alot in breastmilk! It grows babies! babies who breastfeed dont need restricted calories!!!! LOL! Its okay to feed one year olds whole milk! You crack me up! Trying to put down breastmilk!

    Quoting amayabrianna:

    OK for everyone that says that your BM doesn't have that much sugar here you go:

    "Oligosaccharides (small sugar chains larger than lactose) are unique to human breast milk. These small sugar chains are present in amounts as high as 18 grams per litre of breast milk which is much higher than protein at 10 to 12 gram per litre. The most common sugars making up these short chains are N-acetyl-D-glucosamine, sialic acid (a 9 carbon amino sugar) and fucose. Fifteen percent of the sugar content is protein bound and 85% is free in the form of oligosaccharides, with chain lengths varying from 3 to 11 units1."

     Actually I never once put down breast milk. Please show me where I did. I simply replied to the fact that so many were saying that sugar was not in BM. And since when do BF babies have any different nutritional requirements than FF babies? What is the difference in a baby getting the same calories from BM or FF? As long as that baby is happy and healthy then why bash either one? Oh and when did I say it was ok to feed your babies whole milk? Please Please Please show me where I ever said any of this!!!! Both of my DDs drink skim milk and have since they turned 2, before that they drank 1 or 2%. Never whole milk!!! But since I said all those things please show me where I said it!!

    Good lord people, keep the font down...MY EYES!!

    honest question...isn't there a difference in sugars naturally occurring in bm than in formula or this stuff?

    Oh! Thanks for clearing that up. I didnt read all the other replies, it looked like an attack on breastmilk and its calories. SORRY BRIANA!

    Or that are high in good calories that they will actually eat. When your child has fallen completely off the growth charts for weight, you do what you gotta do.

    Quoting TessB:

    My oldest has growth hormone deficiency and gets a shot of GH every night...he is also on a high calorie diet. This is a easy way for calories, but like everything else that is high calorie, it is full of sugar and/or fat! It is so hard to find things that are healthy and high in calories. At least with this they get the nutrients as well!

    Quoting Phenomemom:

    Not to mention that some toddlers have growth issues and NEED a high caloric intake. I have one.

    Pedisure is the same thing and people use that left and right. it is NO different than Pedisure.

     I dont see what is wrong with it.  So do none of you give your kids chocolate milk?

    That's absolutely disgusting. And what's even worse is that I know there are parents who would think that's ok to give to their toddler.
