    Hi girls,


    I know that this may be such a dumb question, however I will share.

    I am hoping to breast feed my baked bean, however have put some formula in my bag just incase she does not latch.

    We bought a microwave steriliser for her bottles. However, I am wondering when should i sterilise her bottles and whether they will re-sterilise them in the hospital??

    When I had my last son almost 10 years ago, they had these kinda disposable bottles with the milk in them which were tiny. but, I am hearing that a lot of hospitals have cut back on this!!!:dohh:

    Whats do you reckon??

    i was told that even if my hospital dont do milk anymore. If you plan on bf and it fails or you cant then they will supply milk and bottles!so maybe worth ringin your hospital

    My hospital supply the small sterilized bottles but not the milk. You also have to take in the cartons of formula as they won't let you make it up in the hospital or sterilize your own bottles. I think a lot of hospitals are different though xxx

    I don't thinkany hosp has facilities for people to make up formula and sterilise etc so if not provided there will be disposable bottles u put your ready milk in I imagine!

    I went on a hospital tour of the birth centre and the labour ward yesterday and they have said that I should not bother bringing the formula. There are no means to sterilise the bottle. They are encouraging everyone to breast feed ...(government cutbacks i guess!!).

    Nonetheless, they do have access to disposable bottles that can be used for the baby.....I am hoping that they do have aptimal! lolx

    I was told if you plan on breastfeeding you don't have to bring anything. If the breastfeeding fails they'll provide you with ways and means of feeding your baby :).
