    I question the intention of this thread

    How ridiculous to suggest that mothers should essentially be punished (financially) because they choose to FF, rather than BF

    Why should any woman have to disclose her history, in order to receive free food for her new born baby????!!!!

    Outrageous

    I think for anyone who has been around the Hub for a little while knows the intention of starting the thread, and that goal has been achieved.

    What if you're not sure of whether or not you're going to breastfeed and then after a horrible traumatic birth you have this wrinkly screaming baby put on your chest and you are adamant that you do not want that baby on your breast. Period.

    Several have said its okay for victims of sexual abuse, but what if women don't feel comfortable disclosing their history of sexual abuse with the midwife at the delivery, a virtual stranger. I didn't tell my husband about my sexual assault until after we were married!

    And how many women go into labour COMPLETELY unprepared with no hospital bag packed?

    IMO hospitals should provide it on request but not offer. It should be there, if it's needed but breastfeeding should be promoted.
    The traumatic birth scenario is covered in the 'medical' clause in my original post.

    Good point in that the pay-for-yourself system could have logistical difficulties. But by the sound of things some hospitals already have limits
    In place (eg 24 hour supply) then it's up to the parents.

    Women already are punished financially if they choose to ff - perhaps all Formula could be subsidized? Or free to Make it equitable.

    But who judges what was traumatic and what wasn't? That's obvious here on bubhub when women are told their experience wasn't that bad and they should just get over it.

    You could look at it this way. Forcing mothers to BF if they are repulsed or scared or sickened by the idea (as some are) will on put a further drain on the system in the future when they require counseling or therapy for the post traumatic stress they will suffer. Just one possible outcome.
    But this point you've made is really unfair when affixed to new mums. Not wanting to BF and being effectively penalized for it is awful. Hospitals have a duty of care and should provide meals for ALL patients.

    Eek I certainly hope not. It's not punishment to have to pay for a product you want.. that's just how it works..

    I haven't read the whole thread, but I would expect the hospital to ensure my baby was fed, the same way I would expect it to ensure any other patient was fed, it's really as simple as that!

    I would love to know the profit margin for formula
    Subsidising is a great idea
