Nanny State at it again:NYC mayor wants hospitals to lock up baby formula to encourage breast-feeding
First the drink sizes and now a limit on baby formula?

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.


Under the city Health Department’s voluntary Latch On NYC initiative, 27 of the city’s 40 hospitals have also agreed to give up swag bags sporting formula-company logos, toss out formula-branded tchotchkes like lanyards and mugs, and document a medical reason for every bottle that a newborn receives.

Bloomberg is on a power trip. He has gotten away with everything so far, why stop?
I breastfed 2 of my kids, and even if I had been able to, my middle daughter could not be breast fed, and had to be specially fed because of her total cleft of the lip and palate.
IMO, it is up to the mother, not some stupid beaurocrat sitting behind a desk, dictating to everyone.

Just when you think there can't be any more outrageously ludicrous stories . . .

This is SO FRIGGING STUPID.

What the hell is the obsession with breast-feeding?!!

Does Bloomberg want more public displays of breasts?

Something very disturbing about this.

I find the hypocracy on this board amusing... I thought "Big Pharma" (and who do you think makes infant formula?) and "processed food" (which said formula is) were evil?

Breast feeding is one of the SINGLE most important things a mother could EVER do for her child.

Drinking soda is horrible for you.

I think we should educate people, but NEVER mandate.

Sadly, to be truly free, many will suffer because of ignorance.

Those that are informed will do what is right, unless they choose to do what is wrong. Then they themselves are only to blame.

Prove your claim.

Do you suggest that mothers who bottle-feed are not good mothers?

If so, shame on you.

Do you suggest that bottle-feeding is detrimental as opposed to breast-feeding?

If so, how do you account for those children who were bottle-fed and grew up to be healthy, active kids and adults?

This is true, but do you really believe education about breast-feeding is the responsibility or right of a MAYOR?

Those that are informed will do what is right, unless they choose to do what is wrong. Then they themselves are only to blame.

Are you putting breast-feeding in the "do what is right" category?

It is not his place.

To my knowledge, advocating the practice of breast-feeding has NEVER been part of the criteria for mayoral duties.

This is outrageous but it goes hand in glove with Obamacare just as this nuts soda ban goes hand in glove with Michelles fat campaign.

They ALL need to go.

This is a decision for the mother alone.
One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.

Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?. . .J. Handy
