    And I suppose you'll be the one to determine what constitutes "feeding difficulties"? Better compile a comprehensive list of criteria, and be ready to point the finger at the woman who hasn't tried hard enough yet... no free formula for you!

    Of course the mother knows if she is capable or not. No it's not up to someone else to decide. But if she decides beforehand she is no capable, then it's up to her to provide the alternative. If she gets there and has nothing, it can be billed at the end like my brother's painkiller medication was billed to us upon discharge.

    Nice to see lots of people agree that women shouldn't be allowed to make their own decisions over their bodies.

    replying before the thread gets shut down lol

    i am a formula feeding mum, i brought my own formula to the hospital and think most mums should to, unless their is a medical reason, and the hospital would keep some emergency set aside just for that.

    i also think that formula is almost just as good as breast milk these days, thats my opinion. the hospital i stayed at supplied bottles, not formula, it didnt bother me at all. so yea thats what i think lol

    I agree that if you know you are going to formula feed then it may be something you would take in...

    But at the same time, the mother has every right to change her mind and may want to try and breastfeed...so may decide not to bring formula...
    so then maybe EVERY new mum should bring a tin of formula in, just in case??? but then doesnt this make it even easier..to "give up"
    so again the argument is stupid.
    Most women are only in hospital for 24 to 48 hours..its hardly all your precious tax money..
    You should go after the women with babies in neo natal care, those babies are using up all the tax money in electricity and I think it should be stopped.
    so really why dont we just stop the freaking fighting and let women be.

    I'm more than happy to pay for it if need be, not just expect it to be given to me.
    And read the bit in my posts that clearly states IF YOU CHOOSE TO FF FROM BIRTH THEN BE PREPARED TO PAY FOR IT.

    I know that I am being argumentative but I cannot help but think that if formula should be provided by those who can but choose not to breast feed then gee all centrelink payments should be stopped for all those who can, but choose not to work, for only non medical reasons of course!

    This topic has made my blood boil, which is a first for bub hub.

    Not just that, but people also don't see babies as people and patients worthy of being fed and cared for at hospitals...weird...

    Following some of the logic on this thread, public hospitals also shouldn't supply any drinks other than tap water. (No tea or coffee, for example). Tap water is free, after all.

    And for all those who say hospitals shouldn't supply the formula - should they supply microwaves/ equipment for bottle feeding, or does the mother have to bring that in too?

    And what if the formula companies gave it to the hospitals for free. Would you be okay with it then? Is this a tax dollars argument, or a "women must be punished for not BF" argument?
