Hi, haven't wrote on here for a while. Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas? Im 34 weeks pregnant and its our first baby and was getting my hospital bag ready (just incase) but what do I do for milk? I've been told by a friend who's baby is nearly 2 that I can't bring in powder milk then I read online some where you can't bring in the ready made milk? I'm so confused...
Ask your midwife at your next appointment. Some hospitals have strange rules. Some make you sign a disclaimer before allowing you to bottle feed. Some only allow you to take premade bottles as you can't sterilize anything whilst there.
You need to check with your hospital as they all have different rules. I bf mine but from friends who bottle fed I know that the hospitals round here provided the ready made pre-sterilised bottles so you didn't have to take your own. They had a stock of all the main brands so you could use the one you wanted. Not sure how usual that is though.
Hospitals will give those pre made bottles if there is an issue with breastfeeding, or weight gain etc loulou but they won't give them if someone has chosen to formula feed exclusively as that would be classed as formula promotion and is not good practice. (And against the law)
