Hospitals scrap Formula Samples to new moms

Many hospitals across the country are no longer including formula samples in their gift bags given to new moms. The hospitals are doing this in an effort to promote breast-feeding.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, half of the 2,600 hospitals surveyed last year no longer give out formula samples.

Nurses at the Women’s Pavilion at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital said they still include the samples unless the mom doesn’t want it.
