At The Hospital **edit

Did the nurses put a sticker on your baby's cradle when you informed them you only wanted to breast feed?

I'm so nervous that they will try to give my baby formula, they did that with my first baby without my consent, i bf fine after that, but was still upset that they KNEW I was only breastfeeding, yet still gave him formula.



**edit

I also asked because at my 37 week appointment the nurse gave me 2 boxes of infant formula. I was going to refuse but she was out of the room before I could speak. I go to a clinic for my check-ups that is directly across the street from the hospital I will deliver at.

My son stayed in my room the whole time with the exception of getting hearing test, shots and circumcision,so it was never an issue. They knew not to give formula and even took the formula out of his drawers.

Nope. SO went to the nursery with him and they tried to give him a bottle of formula and SO said no because I was breastfeeding and they said well we will take her a pump. SO told them no we aren't bottle feeding, she is breastfeeding and they dropped it but when he went back in to get his heal prick they had SO dip her finger (only after trying to talk SO into either a bottle of sugar water or a paci with it) in sugar water and put it in his mouth. they made it seem like he needed it for the test. I was pissed.

My baby never left me, until circumcision, and dh went with him and waiting outside the door. I went with him for hearing test, and shots were done in room. So there was never an opportunity. Same with dd. no sticker identifying bfed or not. Just keep your baby w you.

I agree keep the baby with you. I dont like hearing people say the nurse s messed and gave a paci or bottle or shot or something that they shouldnt have. Keep your baby with you at all times, they cant require you to be seperated. I went with my youngest to thhe hearing test even, she was not getting out of my sight. I will do the same with the next one as well.

 I told everyone I came into contact with that she was not to have a binkie, bottle, etc. They put a sticker on her bed thing, and on the door.
