    Our hospital used either Nan HA or an S-26 and they weren't allowed to recommend one over the other but the midwife told me more parents chose the Nan so I opted for that.

    That's ridiculous they can't tell you what they were feeding your baby. It's in the best interests of your child that they tell you. Hospital policies on formula feeding are so stupid.

    Anyway I hope bub settles for you. These first weeks are the hardest - you're doing a great job!

    Good to hear he is taking the boob well. If you do need to get some bottle try Pigeon. Most babies take them really well and every nurse I've spoken to recommend them. They sell them at pharmacies not at BigW etc. If you have a Chemist Warehouse near you they usually have them at a good price. That is weird about the hospital not telling you the formula, I've never found that when I've been picking up foster bubs from hospital.

    So glad it's going well now!

    Disgusted that they wouldn't tell you what formula he had been fed. This is another example of what is wrong with the breastfeeding nazis in this country. In what world is withholding that info in the best interests of the child?

    I agree. I reminds me of my experience of a horror midwife who wouldn't let me take a small bottle of formula with me when taking DS home from hospital, despite the fact I told her I had no milk, the hospital had put him on formula and we had to drive to a shopping centre to get formula, bottles etc before going home. I truly can't believe I didn't complain. This was not in the best interests of DS.

    These are examples of the oppression and danger of how far some people and clearly institutions have taken the "breast is best" mantra. Disgraceful that mothers and babies are treated like this.

    He was in scn or neonates I don't even know the difference! But he was in hunicrib on antibiotics, no cuddles etc. I asked if I could express & mix feed and a midwife said I need decide one or other as it messes there gut flora I felt bullied into situation. Then next day they said no no hand express...

    He slept 4am-8am lol woo. I will try and see how he goes tonight but gosh im exhausted.
