We've spent weeks researching and testing breast pumps and bottles in real homes with real families. Read our baby feeding bottle and breast pump reviews to find out which ones were awarded Mumsnet Best.

if breast is best, then logically, bottle is second best?

Has this thing kicked off yet?

I thought Gin & Tonic was 2nd best

That is what we were told

Formula comes way down the list doesn't it?

Actually there is an official answer to this from the World Health Organisation which I think from memory is:

1. Breast
2. Expressed breastmilk
3. Donated breastmilk
4. Formula milk

So formula is officially fourth 'best'.

I thought Gin was the Mother's little friend

Wasn't that what that meant?????

threads like this are just so much fun for the people who are struggling with the feelings they have when b/f isn't working.
what next, 'you are poor because you don't work hard enough?' That has a similar leval of compassion

but you've got to admit HMB - that 2nd best isn't such a bad thing...........

stitch Sat 25-Jun-05 21:18:59

my personal fav is vodka! though i had an aunt who swore by a teaspoon of brandy for all sorts of health problems in her babies.
treated colic wonderfully apparently!

dinny Sat 25-Jun-05 21:19:12

exactly, HMB.

crunchie Sat 25-Jun-05 21:19:26

hmb I uderstadyou feelings, but it is a JOKE

QueenOfQuotes Sat 25-Jun-05 21:19:37

And anyhow - I always thought Whisky was 2nd best - not Gin - Gin's about 5th on the list I though

stitch Sat 25-Jun-05 21:19:50

i am such a trouble maker.

hehe when my daughter was young just about ALL the old ladies at church took me to one side and recommended a tablespoon of brandy before bed...

well in that case spod we'd better stop the WHO's campaign that says "Breast is Best"..........
