    I cannot believe how mean some people are with their money. I'm a public servant, your tax dollars pay for my plunger coffee and scotch finger biscuits. Somebody call Today Tonight.

    It's important, you know. To keep formula feeders in their place.

    When you and your baby are in hospital the hospital should have a duty of care to ensure that you are both adequately nourished. We're talking about a baby's food here, hardly a luxury item.


    Whilst I would expect that if a mother choses to FF from birth then she should expect to bring her own formula and bottles in. On the other hand, if a woman is desperate then the hospital should be able to provide her with some formula.

    I had both my children in a public hospital and this was the case. Although I was trying to BF both my babies in both instances I had good reason to seek comp feed(*). I wasn't expecting that, for DS I didn't own any bottles, formula or anything as I assumed BF'ing would be easy.

    *I comp fed DS because he had jaundice and I had supply issues most likely caused by stress and the concoction of drugs from birth as well as severe nipple trauma. I comp fed DD a couple of times as I had supply issues most likely caused by a severe PPH.

    how about...

    why do women with special needs kids, get funding? I mean I work hard for my money and I dont have a kid with special needs so why should my money go to them?

    Funny thing is that I had to FF from 3 months so I see nothing wrong with it and have not "bashed FF" but I still think if you are choosing to FF then take your own along.

    where is the line?
    what if you do not know?
    take some just in case?

    this leaves it in the ..."give up" basket..

    I'm not anti formula feeding. BF'ing is bloody hard work,i bled in the early days and nearly gave up.

    But I believe if you choose to
    Breastfeed for lifestyle/non medical reasons then you should pay for the formula. The taxpayer shouldn't foot the bill because you choose a more expensive way to feed your baby.

    *** to clarify. I consider sexual abuse, pnd, birth trauma, previous technical difficulties, current technical difficulties etc to be medical reasons for not bf'ing. The pay for your own formula view is for women who simply don't want to try at all/think its weird to have a baby at their breast.
    People who formula feed pay for the formula when they go home which has taxes attatched to it. Thus, in a way they are paying way more for the formula that they had at the hospital.

    and that's why most hospitals won't even tell mums what brand they're using - one of our local tertiary hospitals uses a 'hospitals own' brand, to remove the label concept - because of this issue.

    But it means its only the private hospitals (aka those who haven't gone for BFHI) who are eligible for free formula - those who abide by the International laws surrounding formula promotion, don't get it free.

    [and for a lot of people, myself definitely included - that's the only issue they have with FF - the unscrupulous marketing employed by the companies trying to get every mother to quit BFing don't really care either way on a personal level]
