What kind of formula does the hospital offer?

So ive only got a few weeks left and im trying to tie up all loose ends. . I want to know if i should take my own formula to the hospital or if they will have the kind i need. . I am using a very basic kind. . Enfamil (as long as my baby will take it). . .But i dont know if they would have that for sure and i dont want to switch formulas once i get him home. Does anybody know what kind of formula a hospital will offer???

  • My hospital does not offer any since they promote breatsfeeding and due to liability incase your baby could be allergic so i would find out ahead of time or bring your own preferance.

  • Have you already preregistered at the hospital and taken a tour? If not, that is a great time to ask.

  • There was a topic not long ago and i was shocked to see mothers cruel answers over this topic.
    It can be found under this title: No more diaper/formula bags,Only promote breastfeeding,despite mothers wishes/needs.
    It is closed now but worth a read for your referance.
