Infant formula was introduced in the early 20th century; bottle-feeding quickly spread worldwide. Marketers touted its convenience, and it became fashionable and aspirational. It does not offer all of breastfeeding’s benefits, but in high-resource regions with safe water, it presents no dangers. Infant formula was aggressively marketed in low-income countries, pushing false claims about its benefits without mentioning its risks in low-resource settings. Mixing infant formula with unsafe water means babies are fed harmful bacteria while simultaneously being deprived of their mothers’ infection-fighting antibodies, doubly dangerous.
