At about three days old with each of my children, we realized the breastmilk just wasn&#39;t cutting it yet and they were starving! It has happened all three times! A couple of ounces of formula and giving the boobs a break while they slept and we are good to breastfeed as long as we want. If we didn&#39;t get the samples in the mail, it would have been at least an hour from the time the midwife said, &quot;Give that baby some formula&quot; until baby was content and fed. No one wants to wait that long when they are told their newborn is dehydrated. Especially when they are told this by a &quot;crunchy&quot; midwife!Shaynoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6647474911911126372.post-38379552796617673422011-12-07T23:57:25.335-05:002011-12-07T23:57:25.335-05:00THANK for this post.!

Guess what? Ff moms aren&#39;t dumb, we choose not to BF because we don&#39;t want to. It really is that simple. You can bully me all you want, Im not doing it. <br /><br />If you BF and don&#39;t want the Ff, say no, or take it out and leave it in the hospital, or give to a FF mom you know. But please, don&#39;t crusade against formula samples, most of us appreciate not havingnto buy FF, even in small amounts. Its real money we lose, and it doesn&#39;t make BF more appealing when lacktivists are such bullies.staceyjwhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/17228162863743151491noreply@blogger.com
