    Great info which needs to be spread around…many thanks!
    My only suggestion is to avoid using the word benefits of MM..since MM is the natural and normal product to feed babes. It has no benefits. What it does is the way nature provides. Formula has risks.. I work with BFHI in Germany and we chose to avoid using the word benefit and to replace it with Bedeutung which basically means significance, impact, relevance. We try to avoid comparing nature\s product with a man!/made one.
    Keep up the great work!
