i had every intention to bf my twins but due to bubs needing special care at birth my milk did not come in fast enough nor was i making enough so the hospital gave formula...would you prefer they starve them i was unable to leave the hospital to buy formula so i used what hospital had then switched to formula of choice when home.
having babes in nicu and scu the hospital also supplied nappies and wipes and everything else that was needed as it is easier for them and when we left we took home all the leftover supplies as the nurse said if we didn't they would just get thrown away due to hygiene and safety.
you can't discriminate on who gets/doesn't get the free formula and i think choosing to ff in hospital is a lot harder than bf..believe me the amount of tears i shed due to the pressure i was getting to bf was enough to fill a lake. sometimes what we wish to do and what actually happens are two different things.
