Formula coupon that came in mail

So I'm 35 weeks pregnant and recieved two free cans of formula and coupons the other day. I plan to bf just like I did with my first two but I do give a bottle every now and then. so yesterday I get another mailing with a "coupon" for free diaper bag and formula from hospital. there is a tip sheet on the back of it...it read as follows
1. Pack pjs in your hospital bag
2. make sure to stock up on diapers before having baby
3. If your milk does not come in for a day or two you might need to supplement with a bottle of our newborn formula: SAY WHAT?!?!!

They should be ashamed of themselves!! That is all I have to say about that!

welcome

Welcome to the debate board. It's wonderful to see you posting here and I hope that you will stick around and post more often. (If you are not new - I blame the board change-over and a poor memory!)

Did you sign up for the samples, or did they just send them too you?

Yes, they should be ashamed of themselves.

<Day 1, a newborn's stomach can hold about one-sixth to one-fourth of an ounce (5 to 7 ml) per feeding. Not surprisingly, this amount of colostrum is ready and waiting in the breast.>>

That just makes me so sad for my 2nd DS.
