If survival is your goal the formulas today do a much better job today than 20-40 years ago.
Advances in nutrition research make many a source of good nutrition.If your goal is lowering your kids lifetime risk of heart disease, diabetes & many other issues, breast is still superior.Data support its superiority until at least 8 months.Finally , new moms must do whats best for their own situation.
