Oh, come on. These rules, though silly, are hardly onerous! No free formula from the hospital! Perish the thought! The formula companies will just send out more coupons to get the moms hooked.
I was thoroughly ticked off when one nurse in the hospital tore the "no bottles" sign off my baby's bassinette and fed him anyway because she thought I was doing it wrong. That was in 85. The poor kid couldn't breastfeed because he was already full. Stupid nurse.
But you are only in the hospital a few days. Then you can take control over your baby and do it as you see fit. They aren't outlawing formula.
