The maid denied her actions. Rediet Awel is a mother of two. She is economically well enough to afford the needed baby formula for both her children, aged 1 year and 1 month. She looked for baby formula as an option because she wasn’t able to make enough milk to feed her kids.
“I remember not being able to produce milk when I had my first child. Had it not been for formula milk, my child would not be healthy,” she said. “It is expensive but it is worth it. I am having less of an issue with my second child, but it was nice to have the choice then.” For moms who cannot breastfeed or who decide not to, so infant formula is a healthy alternative.
The formula provides babies with the nutrients they need to grow and thrive. Commercially prepared infant formulas are a nutritious alternative to breast milk and even contain some vitamins and nutrients that breastfed babies need to get from supplements. Commercial formulas, manufactured under sterile conditions, attempt to duplicate mother’s milk by using a complex combination of proteins, sugars, fats, and vitamins that are impossible to produce at home; however, even a well-formulated, nutritious formula is not suitable for every baby.
