Are bottle fed babies just as healthy?

Unfortunately NO. Breastmilk is nature's perfect food for babies; formula is not nearly as good. Breastfed babies have better immune function (less infections), less chance of dying in their first year, lower risk of allergies, Type 1 diabetes and obesity and better cognitive development. Moms who breast feed lose more weight, have less depression & breast cancer! PLEASE BREASTFEED! See
Yes. They sure are. Breast milk provides some immune system "boosters", but bottle fed babies are healthy and there is nothing wrong with bottle feeding!
