Re: How to FF at hospital after birth?
I never said it should be free. I agree with you that everything should be paid for whether it be billed or through insurance.

I'm saying it should be available for those who need it and yes, I'm saying it should be available to those who have made a decision to choose it. Just like I don't want to bring all my meals for the two or three days I will be at the hospital, I don't want to bring all that formula either. What if I'm there longer than expected or just miscalculated and don't have enough?
I'm all for promoting breastfeeding and I think it's great that hospitals are supporting that now but I don't think it's fair to discriminate the other way either.
