My Mom found what the Doctor sent home for her to make her formal. It was can milk ,karo & water. That was in 1953. Why now do they say not to give babys milk ?She seem none the worse for it .

She probably wasn't in a car seat either but research has shown it's much safer to ride in one. Things change over time because of research and technological advances like Michelle said some survived many didn't.

That's how babies starved to death too. They were malnourished.

A lot more research has been done since then and the current formulas contain more nutrients that a growing baby needs instead of the sugar content in what your mother was given.



A lot of things that we are told to do/not do these days were done years ago. Some children survived and others didn't. I was a bit like a luck of the draw. We now know a lot more and have the opportunity to give our babies the best start so why not use it?

Thanks for your replys. My Mom didn't like the fact thats, what was given to babys. She thinks thats why she craves sugar . She breast feed us. Told us it was the best for your baby. My sister an I are both breastfeeding. WE have a great support from her. When I went to work, I was thinking about stopping . She told me I didn't have too. I could do both. She was right, My baby is happy so am I.
