I want to say that I’m pro-nursing, however, I’m pro-make-your-own-choices long before that. It’s nobody’s business - not a nurse, not a doctor, not the government - to make that decision for parents. It really irks me that these mothers that have just given birth have to sit there and be made feel terrible and lectured for their supposedly horrible choices.
My problem with it, Jehovasfitness, is that it would be MY choice as a parent to choose what method to feed my child that I deem fit. Formula is available for OTC sales and I do not feel that I should have restricted access to it. You know how shit hits the fan when they try to make supplements less available or take them away from the general public. In principal, I don’t think this is any different. It’s really deplorable that this has even been considered.[/quote]
Again, it would still be available, just not offered for “free” when you know free samples aren’t there out of the kindness of a business’ heart.
That said, hence my screenname, why would someone knowingly feed their kid formula if A. the mother is able to breastfeed B. and has the “time” (I use that term loosely) to do so
What difference does it make if a free sample is offered? Nobody is forcing anyone to use it. Whenever I go to Sam’s Club, they offer me samples of junk food and I don’t get offended, I simply say “No, thank you”.
Why would anyone choose to use formula instead? It’s a free country? Do you need a better answer than that? lol Why are you so for people having their basic freedoms taken away?
