That hospitals banning formula distribution is taking away their right to ff im going to pull my hair out! Its not outlawed...its not the forbidden fruit. Supply your own formula! Formula will be available at the hospital for EMERGENCIES and its distribution will be tracked. Look, you had 34 some odd weeks from when you found out you were pregnant to decide if you were going to bf or ff. Plan accordingly..buy a can of formula..put it in your hospital bag. Heck text someone and say bring my bag! Have your dh, so, mother, sister, cousin..whoever bring the can to the hospital after you deliver. If you dont want to breast feed no one is going to steal your child away from you! Feed your baby whatever you want..but don't expect to do it for free on the hospitals dime.
Ok on the hospitals dime is not the right phrase. However some hospitals do not track the distribution of their formula supply (not the free samples). Women choosing to have the hospital supply their formula are depleting the hospitals supply that is needes for emergency cases. Why take formula from a child that needs it just because you dont want to buy a can before you go to the hospital. Regardless of whatever reason..saying that this takes away youre right to ff is dramatic.
