    Completely idiotic idea, obviously thought up by complete idiots.
    For me it is nothing to do with money, but further 'punishing' and alienating women who physically cannot (such as myself due to radical surgery) or do not want to.
    i thought women had choice....
    i thought women had control over their bodies.....
    i thought women were meant to support each other, especially during pregnancy and birth.....

    Oops, forgot that doesn't happen in reality

    Wow what a thread. I BF both my boys, still am for DS2. Totally disagree with the idea of a cash incentive, it is ludicrous. All for putting money into LC though.The two I have seen were abrupt and you couldn't even mention formula anywhere near them for fear of offending them. I've had many friends that had bad experiences with feeding, tried everything to avoid FF but it just didn't work out. Big deal! First time Mums have enough to stress about without having to worry about expressing every hour/going to the GP over and over/taking meds to boost supply, all the while trying to get baby changed/sleep/burped etc, not to mention everything else that goes into your day.

    You are made to feel guilty enough as a Mum, why make it worse for those who don't have the option to BF?

    I disagree. BF has too many benefit that should be incentive by themselves.
    I wanted to BF but I was unable to do it, even trying different ways and consulting different people. That's emotionally traumatic. Not all women give formula to their babies because they don't want to BF. Most of them, simply can't.

    Hilarious! Would I have to go down to centrelink with bubs, take a ticket & proceed to counter 4 to have my claim verified?

    Isn't not having to pay for formula enough of a cash incentive?

    And how would this possibly be monitored? Blood tests on your baby? Regular mouth swabs? MCHN boob squeezing to check for recent signs of lactation? Random government raids on pantry cupboards for illicit tins of formula? Credit card checks for the purchase of sterilisers and bottles? Pffft. Impossible to monitor and open to all sorts of rorting.

    Oh yes, wholeheartedly agree!

    I would also like a cash incentive for the natural conception of my baby, and for my vaginal birth, oh and please a bonus for a drug free birth! And while you're at it, I'd like an extra pay out every year just for being the perfect parent, every second of every day, cos you know I am!
