They do you give you some formula for sure. I was sent home with 4 ready made bottles and that's it. I got way more when I had my son.

I registered on formula sites when I was pregnant so my friend could get the coupons and I put that I would be breastfeeding ON PURPOSE to see what I'd get. I literally got 3 times as many checks and samples as my friend that registered as a FF mommy. They gotta make that money. I get that. But I had my mind made up and I knew I'd never use formula if I could help it.

I understand that the availability makes it easier to FF. I totally get that. I just don't like being made to feel like the choice isn't mine or yours. I don't like bullying when it comes to parenting issues. I'm ALL for the education and support because I believe that's what makes more mothers want to breastfeed.
