 When I was born 53 years ago, not too many women gave their babies formula. I
was breastfed until I reached an old enough age to drink from a glass. Btw, I am
one of six children who were all raised the same way and two of us have
diabetes. There are a lot of babies out there who are fed cow's milk based
formulas as well, and they don't all have diabetes (my daughter is one). There's
more to it than milk.
