I think that would be just fine, and I think that any mom who is formula feeding would certainly appreciate any freebies... formula isn't cheap! Especially in the beginning stages when you are trying to figure out which brand your newborn can tolerate!

I gave all of the samples we got in the doctor's office and in the mail to a women's shelter.

I gave all mine to my SIL who was FF her DD. If they are gonna send it, might as well give it to someone who will use it.

I'd donate it. Not wrong at all, and really what else are you going to do with it? I sign up for all the formula freebies and donate or sell them. Cost the evil formula companies (notice I said formula companies, not formula itself) money and people buy less cutting into their profits.

I gave all of our formula samples away to friends. I think any ff mom would appreciate it.

Me, too. I have a friend that EBF for 2 months but had to go back full time to work after that. Pumping wasn't working for her so they supplement during the day. I am always collecting samples for her. I get them from the Dr, WIC, yardsales ( unopened and not expired!), my local freecycle group. I know that formula is expensive and I am so glad that I do not have to buy it. Other women are not so lucky so I try to help her out.

OK, Good I *guess* part of me thought if I asked I would be ATTACKED and told I needed to try to convert her to BFing but I think its a personal choice so I have talked to her but I dont want to be pushy I just didnt know if I was almost TRYING to get the freebies if it was bad

I always gave my formula and coupons to my sister. She never wanted to breastfeed so I don't bother trying to convert her.
