From the AP:
New moms at hospitals in Massachusetts will no longer get gift diaper bags filled with baby formula and other freebies, thanks to state health officials intent on promoting breast-feeding.
Gail Wood, a spokeswoman for Mead Johnson & Co., which makes Enfamil, called the ban “over the top,” intruding on the private choice about feeding a baby, which is made between mothers and their doctors
I’d agree with that. Somehow my wife managed to enjoy the gift bags without giving up breast feeding. It didn’t hurt that Blue Cross now pays for a top-of-the-line breast pump to be delivered to the hospital and kept by the mom.December 24, 2005
