With the view to encourage mothers to breastfeed their babies a hospital has defended its decision to stop supplying free formula milk for babies. The Hull trust said it would only provide formula milk if there was a risk to the baby's health. For mothers who decide to bottlefeed their babies the hospital would provide just one bottle following the child's birth. Thereafter mothers would be expected to have brought their own supply.

In order to tackle childhood obesity and other health problems mother's who use formula milk will be given more advice and support to prevent them over feeding their babies.

Dewsbury, Bradford and Barnsley are other Yorkshire trusts which do not supply free milk.
