"Bottle feeding promoted over breastfeeding"
Posted by Mumof2 (as ),
After reading another woman's opinion that bottle feeding is promoted over breastfeeding in Queens Hospital, I would just quickly like to add that I experienced the same thing in Harold Wood Hospital when I was sixteen. Despite cramming on breastfeeding literature and being determined to breastfeed, I too had bottled baby milk thrust at me. I was in for a few nights and found the nurses got annoyed whenever my baby cried at night and although I was doing very well establishing feeding, I was bombarded with so called 'top-up feeds' which ruined my chances of brestfeeding for as long as I would have liked to. Very disappointing and surprising as I had assumed the hospital would have been keen to encourage breastfeeding.
