No, don't ask, the so-called 'milk stopper pills' are no longer available, they cause cancer, strokes, seizures, etc. Your colostrum is good for baby, keeps it strong. You want a weak baby, a sickly baby? Of course not. You want the pain to go away, avoid mastitis, save some bucks....... go au naturale.

#2 So I guess babies of mothers who simply can't breast feed will have to starve to death right?

#3 I can name five kids would be dead or seriously underweight without supplemental bottles. Don't give me this crap about medical reasons, the second a nurse has to fill out three papers worth per bottle, well, there are plently of people out there who quite simply only show up to work.
You suck New York. Give me all your yellow brick road and smallville crap you got, we ain't got this. Quit waiting for the Jeter/Madonna sex tape and get it together.

#4 I am very much in favor of breastfeeding. I also think this is one of the stupidest ideas I have ever heard.

#5 So Nanny Bloomberg is in favor of abortion rights because women should have the right to decide issues involving their bodies? Seems like an inconsistency here. I guess if you are an idiot you get a pass.

#6 I had to go back to work three weeks after Eldest Son was born. The family budget wouldn't allow me to take a longer leave. I went through all the nuisance of pumping breast milk, and I still needed to bottle feed.
Education is the key, not hiding bottles.

#9 LOL on CF's comment. Bloomberg seems to be an expert on all matters big and small. Leave the mothers alone. It might have been appropriate for the mothers to have a conversation with their doctors sometime prior to giving birth about breast feeding vs. bottle feeding but to have a lecture before getting formula each time is way over the top. Some mothers can't breast feed.
advice to Bloomberg; leave the mothers alone and quit being a nuisance and a nag. He must be such an annoyance to New Yorkers if he is such an annoyance to people outside of NYC. Has Bloomberg ever been a father? Does he have any appreciation for mothers and what they are dealing with. Some have serious postpartum depression; they don't need more $hit.

#10 Shed load of Muslims expect bro's wifeys milk as hospitality. A billion flies can't be wrong now, can they?

#11 Mayor Bloomberg is pushing hospitals to hide their baby formula behind locked doors so more new mothers will breast-feed.
So what you're actually saying here, Mike, is "My constituents are so damn stupid that this is sure to work."
