Q:

Do formula fed babies have less immunity than the breastfed babies ?



Yes Formula milk don't contain infection fighting antibodies which build immunity,

Breastfeeding had the natural capacity to build the immunity and also a great source of energy, which is not available in formula milk

Nothing is better than mother milk. But i don't think that's FM feed baby less immunity. Because FM are also made keeping in mind the growth of children, their immunity etc.
