Just read this article in the NY Times:

 

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/10/nyregion/free-baby-formula-for-newborns-limited-at-new-york-city-hospitals.html?ref=health

 

It's good more places are stopping handing out formula, so sad that so many places still do!

I didn't love this article, though. It had this quote:

 

'The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breast-feeding exclusively for six months, and continuing it for up to a year.'

 

Um, that's not quite right, NY Times.There was nowhere to comment on it so I wrote them a letter. smile.gif
