Here's the article I just read:
Basically, the birthing hospitals in the state all agreed together to stop handing out free formula samples. If a mother needs formula, it will be provided (but at a charge obviously to be included on the mother's bill).
Too bad there's no way to tag someone in a post here- I'd love to hear whether MamaJake thinks this will be stronger, in the end, than attempting this legislatively. There's no one for the formula manufacturers to sue over a law; and no politicians for them to bribe. On the other hand, any of the hospitals (or all of them) could back out, should they choose to do so, at any time ....
Kudos to all the lactivists who have been involved in the "Ban the Bag" campaign; it looks like we now have a state-wide bag ban in place. Let's see whether this provides the motivation for other states to start (re)considering the bag ban proposals and implementing them in their own states.
