NYC Hospitals ban formula swag bags

breast bottle feeding

NYC hospitals have now officially stopped giving out those free bags filled with formula samples to new moms. The city has a $2 million plan that changes the way new moms will be treated in hospitals. Instead of diaper bags stuffed with formula and coupons, the city's hospitals will be giving out a cooler pack for bottled of breast milk, disposable nursing pads and a T-shirt that says "I eat at mom's." How cool is that? I hope more and more hospitals do away with the bags because it does imply to many women that the doctors and nurses are endorsing a specific brand or feel that formula feeding is just as good as breastfeeding.
