    Mine provides milk but I'm told will nag you about giving BF a go if you dont have a medical reason not to.....not looking forward to it. I am taking my own bottles and ready made up milk in a carton so if I get hassle I will just get my bottles out feed my baby without asking for milk!

    Yeah ours doesn't supply it you have to take your own. I think the whole thing is ridiculous with milk, I know they are big on breast-feeding at the mo and I agree with that ( if it's right for the individual) but at our antenatal class and also hospital tour they were very funny about the whole feeding thing, they will only talk about breastfeeding and won't acknowledge any other method. I'm hoping to bf but am taking some ready made up formula milk to hospital as a back up, the way you are made to feel at our hospital I feel like I'm smuggling in something illegal!!!!:wacko:
