To some mothers, opting for baby milk powder is the only way to feed their baby/ies. Lifestyle is not the only reason why a mother would opt for the powder milk but various other reasons such as medical complication or due to baby simply not latching on to mother’s breast are some of the reason which gets no recognition. I would like to stop the Government and the multinational companies capitalising on their inner motives and profits to sell these products at a ridiculous prices but to think for the sake of humanity and provide the platform to struggling parents feeding their babies.

I believe formula companies are taking advantage of mothers not to mention risking babies' health, and making ridiculously large sums of money while doing so.

Mothers have a right to choose how to feed their baby. The information about formulas should be available freely, but not via marketing campaigns; better from health.

Because breast feeding rates are falling and this has long and short term repercussions to the health of mothers and babies.

Because Formula companies have subjective motives in their strategies to 'inform' mothers. Mothers should not be bombarded with brand names when they are being given health information. Also, mothers who are formula feeding through choice or otherwise should not have to be swayed by price towards one formula or another. Such mothers are dependent of formula to feed their babies and are therefore at the mercy of formula companies who ultimately put profit over the babies' welfare.

Information about formula feeding should be presented plainly and without advertising gimmicks so mothers' choices are not influenced by clever advertising, but by what they genuinely want to do.
