Formula coupons in pumping room? - Page 2

post #21 of 22
Just a gentle reminder-- the purpose of this forum is to promote breastfeeding, not formula feeding. While I understand that there's some ambiguity here-- wanting to help support mothers who formula feed, etc-- it is really not the purpose of the forum and posts that do so will be removed. I will leave the posts suggesting where else to put the coupons. You can read more about the forum guidelines here. As always, feel free to PM me with any questions.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions from all sides. For some reason my email account started tagging MDC as spam so I didn't see the email saying that someone had replied. Anyway, I never put back the coupons. I still have them in my bag. There is a person's name on the check coupons but I don't know who he is. I checked the break room and there's no coupon basket. The company is big enough that it's really not something I think I can initiate although I think it's a great idea. I think I'm the only one using the room because it's across from a security station and there are two guards who love to tell me how much of a waste the room is because I'm the only one. I just smile Also, I've left things around the room in a certain manner and nothing gets moved.

Anyway, I've decided to not put them back. I'd hate to take the chance that they'd fall into the hands of a new pumping mom who is doubting herself even if that means potentially denying them to a woman who has given her heart and soul into BFing but still needs to supplement. I don't know of anyone who is FFing at the moment. If I give them to anyone it would have to be someone who has weaned completely so that I could be certain that I'm not contributing to her stopping BFing. Even then, I'd still be advertising for a FF company so maybe not even then.

As I start volunteering in the community as a CLC I'm really trying to find a balance between being a breastfeeding advocate and still being compassionate towards women who don't BF for whatever reason.

Thanks again!
