Love this!

The hospital staff gave me so much attitude when I gave them back their formula samples. I told them I didn't need or want them and they could either keep it and give it to someone else or I'm just leaving it here anyway... lol

I ended up kind of going off on one of the ladies, and that's not really like me. But I just feel like they're setting you up for failure, you get NO breastfeeding support around here, just a bunch of backup plans.

Yeah the hospital kept handing me samples and I kept handing them back.  When we left and got home I found out they stuck them all in my bag.  Seriously.

No samples at my hospital. If you are trying to bf they help you a lot. They will even call you the first few days to see how everthing is going. there are also a lot of LCs that do group sessions once or twice a week for further help.

 They give samples to formula fed babies, but not bf. They wouldnt even give a paci! They helped me a lot the first week. I swear he had fangs, I was soooo sore.

At the hospital here I would have to give written consent for the nursery to give baby a paci or bottle. They were extremely supportive.
