Re: How to FF at hospital after birth?

What about all the babies in the NICU? Parents provide their own formula from outside the hospital?
I just came back and read that... the hospital is small. It doesn't have a NICU. I attended my birth classes there because it was closer than the hospital I gave birth at. Later, I went to the New Mommy group they host. (It is hosted by the nurse that taught the birth class and is the LC) They do not give out formula samples. The volunteers at the hospital make little travel diaper bags to give away. They have no formula in the L & D department. They are 100% pro-breastfeeding, natural birth, etc. Of course ... I'd be happy to give you their phone number in a PM & you can always call and verify.
