Trying to force people is not the right way to go about it. We should be helping families understand the benefits and let them make their own choice like we have been doing for years.
“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”

Also, I don't agree with the theory of taking away formula promotions. Hospitals receive funding from formula producers for carrying their free formula samples. Nothing wrong with that IMO. A lot of moms are going to elect to use formula anyway. Why shouldn't the formula companies attempt to advertise their product by providing it to the hospital with the promise that they will also donate money for research? I believe that society should stop demonizing creative capitalist practices, like this one, just because they don't think the arena they are practicing it in is appropriate. Money (and a lot of it) is being made in the medical industry whether we like it or not. These guys are just getting their piece of the pie. It costs the mother nothing to take or refuse the free sample.
