I was wondering what do you ladies think of Doctors offices giving out Formula samples.
I just had my 29 week gestational appointment. And got my "sample." It includes four premixed bottles of Enfimil formula, with for bottle nipples to fit the bottles. Plus a free same of free n clear detergant with a coupon. Some information on Enfimil formula, but nothing on BFing.
In all honesty it doesn't bother me to much, as I'm still BFing my 18 month old. I plan on Tandem nursings the new arrivial and DD. DD shows no interest in weaning, so I'm not forcing it (no matter how crazy those around me think I am, I do have DH's full 100% support.) I'm planning on donating the formula and nipples to a locale food band or women shelter.
So what are your thoughts on Doctors handing out formula, expecially with no info on BFing.
