And I say it as someone who partially feeds her son formula. I wish I didn't have to, but I do, and I am thankful that I can give it to him even though it's artificial because it's the best alternative to breast milk I can find. But bring the best alternative doesn't make it any less artificial, processed, fake, or whatever people want to call it - the name doesn't bother me because that's what it is.

I think If I didn't stay in hospital 5 nights I could very well be feeding bub formula now (I hope I haven't offended anyone by calling it formula!)

If there are no complications, our hospital likes people out between 6 hours and 3 days, depending on type of birth, drugs, stitches, etc.

I think maternity hospitals should be reinstated, as an extension of a hospital or somewhere to transfer to once the basic hospital care/birth suite care is done with. Women can stay for 2 weeks or until their supply is established, having full time around the clock LCs on staff and having nurses to take the baby to give mum a much needed break could be the difference for quite a few mums I think.
I also think partners should be included in the stay so they can also establish skills and understanding, that they may be better supports once home... and of course for bonding needs. If a series of expectations for those first 2 weeks is given to the father, then it's more likely to continue at home.
I would really love to overhaul the whole maternity system here in Australia.
