The article is about how hospitals shouldn't be giving free samples of formula out because it undermines breastfeeding. I love the comment that says, "Thats like saying McDonalds ads undermine a persons determination to eat healthy. If you're determined, you're determined, regardless of the availability of alternatives. Way to continue to push the "zero personal accountability" cause USAToday."
I guess I would have liked to have a free sample from the hospital even though I left breastfeeding. As a new mom, there are so many what ifs, and I like to be prepared. As it stands, I had a sample can at home so that "temptation" as some people call it, was there anyway. I've never felt the need to even open it.
I think hospitals need to do more education of new moms so they know how bfing works, not take away samples. Like part of the article states, those samples are often given as part of an agreement that helps get supplies for babies that need to reduce healthcare costs. Education would go a lot further than just not giving someone something. Walmart is around every corner anyway if they really want that formula.
