    The parents supply it.

    There should be an emergency supply for unforseen circumstances, but otherwise, it is treated like anything else a patient may choose- they supply it.

    Gotta love bub hub and the bf nazis ... Loooove the conspiracy theories - formula companies ARE trying to take over the world!!!!!!!

    This thread is disgraceful ... I have bf two children and willnprob bf the third onthe way because this is what worked well for us .... If it didn't work I would have changed to ff without a hesitation! Ff is a luxury? ... Seriously?? Ok only if you consider nutrition a luxury.

    Hosp should have a supply of formula they should also educate parents on how to use it correctly - I was horrified to discover a mum in my mg used to make up her baby's bottles and leave them on the kitchen bench until baby needed them (yes this was mixed with formula) ... Yes she wasn't too bright but there is NO education around ff.

    If people have a choice (ie are capale of either) that in itself I a luxury. Many people don't even have the option. Only those with the privelege of having options would not see it for what it is.

    I think the parents should supply it, or at the least the hospital can provide samples or maybe a start off supply

    Works that way here too, not sure what the issue is.

    If people or hospitals banned the use of formula, or suggested the should, that would be different.
    Definitely not a formula basher, both of my sweetypies were FF as will this bellybabe

    Whats the big deal who supplies it? Why do we always have to make a big deal out of everything? I really don't care who supplies it, just as I don't really care if you 'choose' to FF or BF. Its none of my business, and I shall not judge.

    For the record, DS1 BF for 6wks, than FF due to health issues
    DD2 BF....

    Once again- the baby is a person who needs to eat, and hospitals have a duty of care to their patients- which the baby is. They feed the mothers, and every other patient, so why discriminate on babies? Everyone is entitled to eat when in the care of the public health system.

    Just saw the post above. No nipple cream/shields/pumps were supplied either.
    Nipple cream/shields/pumps are not vital for one to continue living. Food is. No food= death.

    Like grocery shopping is luxury if you're capable of growing food. And education, because you can live without it. And computers when we can write and read books.

    How stupid is it considering these things luxuries? About as stupid as saying formula is a luxury.

    Many comments were pretty much the same as yours, yet they were seen as formula bashing or disgusting comments.

    People care about all kinds of things to do with kids and health. Is there something wrong with giving a ****?
