Baby Milk Issue Facts

Infant formula is not the same as bottle-feeding. e.g. in Sub-Saharan Africa when a feeding bottle is used, it most likely does not contain infant formula but rather plain water, cornstarch water or other traditional food mixtures. Infant formula can be fed by bottle, cup or cup and spoon. If the mother is healthy, it is likely that the baby will be healthy and breastfeeding will be successful.
