Oraganic baby formula

We used formula when Micah was a newborn. We didn't use the organic stuff, but I knew some people who did. Here's a news article on how Similac Organic uses cane sugar to sweeten their formula. The article talks about how pediatricians say it's risky to give babies cane sugar because it can harm tooth enamel, babies might resist less sweet formulas or solid foods, and they might overeat, leading to childhood obesity.

I think a lot of things can lead to childhood obesity and the least of our worries is infant formula, but it's still an interesting article.
