As a gorillas DNA is close to human, researchers have released a new brand of formula made from freeze dried gorillas milk. Despite it being from a different species, it is assured that its perfectly suitable for human babies.
Grossed out? Then why are you ok with cow milk formula? Why should a new born human baby drink milk from another species not even remotely similar, when the babies own mother makes perfect milk for free? I'm joking obviously about gorilla milk formula and I appreciate that breastfeeding isnt easy for everyone, one of the reasons that I'm a volunteer breastfeeding supporter and do all I can to let women know about the support and advice that is available. It just frustrates me that so many people are happy with formula, it was designed to stop motherless infants from dying, it wasnt supposed to become the mass commercial product it has become.
Blogs I read when I cant think what to write on mine!
