I agree, that everybody is an expert and will always offer advice (wanted, requested, or unsolicited). So, no matter what advice is given to you, listen carefully, then examine what you have heard, how it could effect your family (good or bad) and make decisions from the heart.
My field of expertiece is in breastfeeding. I am a board certified lactation consultant. I am not a breastfeeding nazi. However, my answer may make me seem like an extremest.
Lipil formula has been around for about 5-6 years. REasearch has proven that dha in breastmilk has aided in the higher iq status. Dha and Rha in formula is supposed to also increase the iq's of our infants.
However, because this is manufactured in the lab and not the actual properties and extensive studies have not been done yet. The only way to know if it going to work is 10-15 years from now, when they track the iq's of the first test subjects. Breastmilk contains a natural DHA/ARA. THIS HAS BEEN STUDIED EXTENSIVELY. However, I do understand why some women choose to formula feed. But the true answer to the questions is........ask again in about 5-10 years and maybe then you will really know.
