    but you do not see how silly this is?
    you say if its supplied, it makes it too easy to choose..
    if a woman is forced to bring it in, then maybe she wont even try..

    The hospital should pay IMO. A baby is screaming at 3am, mum on her own, bleeding cracked nipples, sleep deprived. Asks MW for formula because she can't bare to sit through another excruciating feed and just wants to feed her baby... No sorry Ms, you will need to wait til the morning when your partner can bring in formula, the both of you can just suffer through the night. Can you imagine? A maternity ward should have alternative food for babies, when it is needed and it is not up to them or anyone else to decide when that is. The hospital checklist I received pre-birth suggested that if you planned to formula feed then to supply your own formula and bottles, because they can't guarantee they will have the brand you would like to use. Fair enough but unless you have decided without a doubt to FF, not everything is so black and white! Oh and why should taxpayers have to foot the bill for a selfish mum and baby in hospital? That family pay tax too y'know? I breastfeed but feel for FF who are CONSTANTLY questioned and have to justify their reasons for feeding their baby they way they choose.

    I think if you know before birth you are ff, you should bring it along.

    Disagree with my opinion all you like, it won't change it.
    It would be a very boring world if everyone agreed.
    If you need a back up then I think it should be supplied until you can get your own. If you go in knowing you're not going to try (and yes there are several people who do and they stick to that decision) then you should pay for it.

    That's all I have to say on the matter.

    You seem to think it's ok if a woman has feeding difficulties, yes? So what if a woman chose to FF from birth because her previous feeding difficulties were so terrible? A bad breastfeeding experience can be incredibly traumatic, and some women are so badly affected that they simply don't want to risk that kind of experience again. After the excruciating pain I experienced feeding DS1 I wouldn't even let DH near my breasts for a couple of years, if someone brushed past me I would wince. I hate to think what it would have been like to attempt to feed a baby during that time. Yet by your criteria I suspect that wouldn't constitute "feeding difficulties".

    In trying to give some women excuses while you exclude others, you create a very confusing and conflicting situation. I would understand your position better if you just said "no free formula for anyone".

    I would hope those who choose to ff from birth, also choose to look into the type of formula they are going to feed their baby. I wouldn't be happy to just accept for my baby whichever brand has been provided by the formula company this week.

    But why does this apply just to formula, and not other 'non essential' things that are supplied in public hospitals?

    What a revolting thread not that any of it surprises me being here so long at the Hub. Women that choose to ff should be punished and things made as hard as possible for them. Bc really, they aren't as good of mums as bfers who actually care about their kids, right?

    so over the formula bashing on this forum. Another aspect of the mummy wars with women trying to make themselves feel superior by making others feel like crap.

    As for the cost, it would be $10 ffs. How about we cut everyone's stays to 2 days to save money? make them pay upfront for all meals. Some mums go into hospital, planning to bf, then on day 2 realise they absolutely hate it. What happens if they don't have money on them, they don't have anyone to go to the supermarket and buy it? let's punish the child and the mum though.

    Unsubbing from this ****e

    I don't think hospitals should freely or readily provide formula.. it should be there and available when babies need it but not routinely given to mums who say they dont want to breastfeed. Mainly because I don't really see the point.. they will be out of hospital within days.and need to buy their own anyway. Hospitals don't provide free disposables either. That said I support choice and if a mum wants to bottle feed I really think nurses and doctors should be giving the best and most up to date information about different formulas (some are easier to digest) not adding cereal to bottles or thickeners unless medically advised, the correct mls for newborns (some mothers I know have accidentally overfed their babies) how to correctly prepare and clean bottles and so on.
