NYC Mayor Wants Hospitals To Lock Up Baby Formula to Encourage Breast-Feeding

The nanny state is going after moms.

Mayor Bloomberg is pushing hospitals to hide their baby formula behind locked doors so more new mothers will breast-feed.

Starting Sept. 3, the city will keep tabs on the number of bottles that participating hospitals stock and use — the most restrictive pro-breast-milk program in the nation.

They need more friendly pumping stations.

'Nanny' Bloomberg is bad enough re: trans fat and soda sizes; wet nurse Bloomberg is a terrifying thought.

Probably trying to reduce cost to city of formula expense because of the number of babies born on city funded programs.

If he'd just close the maternity wards and dictate how many midwives per sq. mile there should be he could save big bucks. (sarcasm off)

That said, mom's milk is the best and mom's should be encouraged to nurse their babies. It's good for the mom also.

The nanny state always runs good ideas into the ground via their inclination to dictate.

But will moms be allowed to breast feed in public (discretely of course) without being hassled?

Keep voting for these Liberals and you will get what you deserve!!!
To 11:30 - I will agree that mom's milk is the best - but, There are some who cannot breast feed and I , myself chose not too!!! It is my baby and my body and it is my choice!!! Also, We (my husband and I) not taxpayers money paid for our daughters formula - (we both work for the private sector) We pay everything for her!! Mayor - Walk a mile in someone's shoes before you tell them what to do!!!

So let me get this right. Rewind 9 months and the mother can do what ever she wants with her body......but once you have a child they feel they can make you do what they want? Why are they not as concerned with the child before it's born as they are once it is born.
In other words you can murder a child just don't feed it formula

Where there is mother's milk, let them suckle.
