Many women cannot or will not feed their children with breast-milk. It is my understanding breast-milk has many advantages over formula. Some psychological like oxytocin and some physiological like advanced antibodies. Have there been any attempts to create a formula with better psychological and physiological properties? Is it even possible to include antibodies in formula or milk?
