We had to ask both times and with ds they even asked which brand we preferred so no pressure at all. We got a bunch of baby coupons and only one was for formula so I guess everyone has a different experience.
You are lucky I went to a breastfeeding supportive hospital, saw the LC, and then was discharged with a big bag of formula. Luckily I knew to get it the hell out of my house ASAP, and did so.
DH & I happily welcomed Squig March '08 and Hiccup March '12

If there are any typos or grammatical errors I was probably NAK, apologies in advance!
