My wife was livid (as was I) because as this is our second child, we had pretty much decided on what we were going to do (breastfeed during the day, bottle of formula before bed at night). They were on some sort of breast feeding crusade where nurses were pressured into not even giving the option that formula was available if the mother wanted it. For the most part, the nurses apologized and *snuck* us formula when we asked for it. I'm all for education (especially for a first child), but to act like a mom that gives their baby formula is wrong or a bad mom is insane. I do agree that this is VERY nanny state.
The boob is much easier for the nurse I reckon.
