Breast milk is the golden standard in nutrition for babies, but for all sorts of reasons, we also need infant formula as an alternative for breast milk. There are some mothers who simply can’t breastfeed or suffer from conditions where breast milk transmits disease. Sometimes a baby is not able to feed on the breast or a baby may need the additional nutrition formula’s may provide.
