How did this box of formula samples arrive at your exclusively breastfeeding door?
Formula companies are shipping boxes of formula samples to breastfeeding mom's. This marketing tool can turn into disaster for your breastfeeding relationship. In 2006, a study from the GOA ( government Accountability Office) found lower breastfeeding rates among women who received discharge bags with formula. It's also associated with shorter duration of exclusive breastfeeding. While sometimes supplementing is necessary, that should be a thought out decision between your family, a lactation specialist and your child's pediatrician. Come donate those unwanted samples to our "drop-off location" and The No-thanks Bank will then distribute them to needy food banks in the Wilmington area.
