iv heard and read about this as well.

But as far as i know, its only on the babys FIRST milk formula that this applies.

i think this because iv always seen offers on different formula milks for ages >6months

The reason is it's illegal is that promotions, advertising etc. encourage people to buy formula when breast milk is much better for babies.

This is hwo they used to do it
