Girls, am due my first baby in September and plan on bottle feeding. Just wondering do the hospital supply the bottles and feed or do you need to bring them in with you?

All hospitals supply all milk and bottles, your not actually allowed to use your own.

No prob, they're glass bottles with disposable tops for them, you just use once and throw away. Most people bring loads home with them too :o0

No way!! Girls I didn't know it was like that out there. Thanks a mill for the heads up. Jeez sounds like they try to make you feel really guilty about not breastfeeding. Do you have to give them reasons why you dont want to? What do people say????
