I'm in uk and they provided formula, bottles and everything else and I was never once made to feel bad about it! I tired to breastfeed but her blood sugar was low so they wanted a top up for a few days till my milk came in and it helped massively x

I just wanted to update...

I called Tuesday morning and they do offer formula in the 2 oz prepare bottles or you can bring your own.

I opted to use theirs and so far it has been a good experience. The lactation consultant came in and gave some tips on reducing breast pain and how to encourage to eat.

This is great, when the hospital provides everything! It was the same for me. Especially the first days can be really hard with breastfeeding!
It is great that there are lactation specialists around.
Some hospitals really have very strict procedures with bringing your own formula to the hospital.
It's great that you called!

We are currently ttc for our 3rd baby... I already made the decision that next time I'll bring my own formula to the hospital.

With my first there was no option whatsoever to use formula and breastfeeding support was barely even there. With my second he was given formula but only after he hadn't peed for a whole day after he was born... even though I was breastfeeding him. He peed after drinking the formula and I lost the will to try and breastfeed after... lol. The night nurse was really kind and gave me no grief about formula feeding... the day nurse, however, was surprised and kept wanting to ask why and "could I help you with the breastfeeding?" but I kinda just changed the subject. I was emotional enough at the time.

I'm really glad things worked out for you!
