Do you know the history behind the formula you are feeding your baby?
While working as Similac StrongMoms Ambassadors we learned the fascinating history behind how Similac formula was created and how Abbott was trailblazed in the infant health and nutrition space among its competitors.
In the 1920’s insulin was discovered, the innovation of penicillin, and the creation of Similac. Similac is a product that has fed millions of babies for nearly90 years and will continue to for many more years. Similac was created by Dr. Alfred Bosworth. Dr. Bosworth invented it to fulfill a need on the Boston Floating Hospital, a ship that was built in 1906 to aid poor woman with sick children. Abbott has created a great info graphic about the heritage of the Similac and Abbott brands, including its milestones for breastfeeding and formula feeding mothers.
We love that Similac supports breastfeeding and formula feeding mothers and supplies resources to benefit both.
I love that Similac provides to support breastfeeding mothers.
