In brief: Bad, bad idea

In health, breast feeding has many benefits, and in the very poor nations, the lack of a good alternative may make it worth the risk.
In the developed world, it is far safer to use a good substitute because of the risk of transmission to the baby. On this subject, there's an unanimity rare in real science. This is an emotional issue with militants offering misinformation -- be warned.
