Babies Will No Longer Get Free Formula Milk

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.
