Is mother milk make senses ?

  1. Jun 8, 2009 #1
    Instead saying
    "milk powder sold in the supermarket can replace mother milk"

    How can you say it in a phrase of Enligsh ? Is mother milk make senses ?

    Thank you

    Re: Milk

    Breast milk. If I was writing the sentence though I would say 'can replace breast feeding' over 'can replace breast milk' since (at least in America) breast milk isn't actually referred to very often, instead mentioning breast feeding as an act
