Our OB office has started handing out formula samples to us at every visit now that we're 3rd trimester. I plan to breastfeed and only suppliment if he's having nutrition problems. I know they do it to try to be helpful, but I thought it was weird to be getting them this early! I'd expect it from the hospital, but from the OBGYN? If they try to offer us anymore, I'm going to politely decline and tell them we have enough free samples. I'm not planning to use them except as a last resort.
What do you ladies think about getting formula samples from the OBGYN? How about getting them from the hospital when they've been told that I intend to EBF?
