It is highly recommended that you do not give water to an exclusively breastfed baby. Breast milk is mostly water, so just offer baby more frequent feeds in hot weather. Giving water can make baby feel full up, which can interfere with their feeding pattern, which inturn will decrease mothers milk supply. Not only that, but introducing teats and dummies too early can cause confusion and cause problems for baby latching on. It is recommended that you wait for at least 6 weeks, to allow feeding to become properly established before introducing such things.

In fact the more I think about this freebie the more troubled I am by it. They ask for your babys due date, so I am assuming that this is targeted at pregnant mums. There is a strict WHO code on the marketing of formula and related products. I wonder what they would have to say??

Dunno, BUT... this is a freebie, NOT an excuse for your breastfeeding rants. People DO have the choice you know and you need to respect that. They are also encouraged to breastfeed and don't need you spamming a thread like this. I breastfed my baby for a year, and in the first three months he HAD to have cooled water too, as he was so chubby on exclusively breast milk. The old adage about breast fed babies not being fat - FALSE. So, that freebie would have been perfect for me.

People still have the right to choose what they do, whatever you think.

Sorry if you think im ranting and disrespectful. Among the many reasons i feel passionate about this is the fact I live in an area with the lowest breastfeeding rates in the UK and a lot of the women i come into contact with feel they don't have a choice when it comes to feeding, whether that be through lack of support or because they tried before and it didn't work or because they think its gross or too embarrasing. Its great to hear that your baby thrived so much on your milk, not all women are so lucky (maybe you could have donated your excess milk to your local special care baby unit). Thats why there are strict guidlines in place (please refer to the second link in my previous post) to protect mothers and babies from immoral and aggresive advertiving. I didnt write the code, so this isnt really about what i think :). To be honest, i couldnt care less if someone bottle feeds or breast feeds, babies all grow up just the same dont they? But if a mother has problems establishing breastfeeding it can be traumatic for mother and baby and thats when women need support.

I would have loved to have donated milk, my mum used to be a midwife and said that special care babies would have thrived on it (had cream on top when expressed, okay tmi, i know, lol). I could easily have fed another two babies. However at that time, 18 yrs ago, it was not allowed, I think it was because they still didnt know if aids could be passed via breast milk, and had no quick tests then either.

Last time I looked there was such a thing as expressing - breast milk into a bottle so you dont have to spend every second of the first year within a few metres of your baby. This seems ideal. Not to mention the new mums who physically can't breast feed. And the ones who for one reason or another just choose not to. Choice being the operative word.

Ta OP, looking forward to trialling this.

Like i say in my previous posts, it is recommended that you wait for at least 6 weeks, to allow feeding to become properly established before introducing such things, after 6 weeks go for it, expressing is a great thing. Like i say, a lot of the women i come into contact with feel they don't have a choice when it comes to feeding, whether that be through lack of support or because they tried before and it didn't work or because they think its gross or too embarrasing. I also say i couldnt care less if someone bottle feeds or breast feeds, babies all grow up just the same dont they? But there are strict regulations (not made by me) about the marketing of formula and related products for babies under the age of 6 months, hence the reason your first bounty pack isn't crammed with sma or tommi tippees and the fact that you just dont get first stage milk freebies on sites like this.

got my bottle this morning thanks.

Received today after just 1 week!

:w00t:great find received mine today

these bottles saved my life! i loved breast feeding but after for 8 months i needed to go back to work! these are the only bottles my little one would take.

Q breast milk is high in fat, but it is good fats which are full of calories. The body learns to deal with these and processes them successfully. This is helped by the lactoferron in breastmilk which is not in formula - it is cows iron that is in formula and as iron is not species transferrable this is of no use to the human body - babies are not told to stop breastfeeding because they are too fat. They receive more bad fat from formula which the body struggles to process - this resulting in the sleepy baby. Once fat cells in the baby are full the cells multiply hence the obesity link which has been proven and can be found in the british medical journal. These fat cells can only be remove by invasive surgery such as liposuction so "antilorna" was spot on.

These bottles should not be on special offer and as such i will be contacting the company directly and also consumer services. Even if expressed breastmilk is used, teats do interfere with breast feeding causing nipple confusion and then a reduction in milk supply. As breastfeeding is the single best thing you can do for your baby these laws are meant to protect our children and should not be undermined. Breastfed babies should not be given cooled boiled water as it can affect mums supply. Babies certainly do not need to be given water because they are chubby. The first part of a breastfeed is 90% water with very little fat dewsigned by mother nature to perfection for our babies. If this was a health professional who advised you of this i suggest you file a clinical incident report with you local helath board as this information is completely outrageous.:x

Well done to "antilorna" for picking up on this - the welfare and protecton of our children need more like you. You really seem to be well informed!:thumbsup:

I'll happily stand corrected if directed to the relevant documentation, but AFAIK the legislation refers to the promotion and marketing of infant formula, and not bottles like this offer does.

I personally find this offer useful - I've already pointed out that there are 'genuine' reasons for needing to use bottles whether with breast milk or formula. The contiuous bludgeoning attitude of those who refuse to accept there is an alternative to breast feeding is, in my opinion, the reason why the pro-breast campaign continues to flounder. It needs to be promoted intelligently in an unbiased manner by focusing on the benefits, not continually driving it down peoples' throats and showing moral indignation when someone chooses another option.

It is clear from speaking to many young mothers that the valid points antilorna raised in relation to the low uptake of breastfeeding is compounded by the feeling that breast feeding is being pushed on them in an almost militia like manner. Sometimes you have to be a bit more subtle.

MIne arrived today!

Please refer to Article 5 in ibfan.org/sit…i=1

I totally agree with the way bf can seem forced upon women. Midwives and health visitors are stretched to the max, yet they are still bound by unrealistically high targets to get women breastfeeding and then to get them out the door just as their milk is about to 'come in', the time when mothers need the most support. It takes time to support a new mother establish breastfeeding and im talking days and weeks, not just a quick half hour in the birthing suite or during a 15min home visit, time that health officials just do not have. This is why our group and many others campaign to raise awareness of breastfeeding, so that we can offer the extra support that midwives and health visitors cannot.

I come into the category of nearly chucking it at 10 days, the pain was unbearable to the point i was getting angry at my 10 day old baby for hurting me so much, i would rather go through the pain of induced labour a thousand times over than go through that again. I was really going to hit the next person who told me that the baby wasnt latched on properly or that i wasnt doing it right. I cried for days convincing myself that i just couldnt do it, that i was physicaly unable to. (the percentage of women who are actually physically unable to bf is surprisingly low!) Formula was starting to look like the 'cure' i needed. Luckily i had great support and my health visitor suggested it may be nipple thrush. I was prescribed dactarin and it cleared up in 2 days and ive not even had so much as a cracked nipple since.

At the end of the day, this site is about freebies. What would you say if i were to give you £100? How about £200? OK then have £500, thats how much on average you can save by breastfeeding, not having to buy formula, bottles, teats, sterilisers, bottle warmers. Thats a free holiday! My last car cost me £350. Im not going to give out more of my hard earned cash to greedy corporations than i need to, especially when i can make it for free myself. It would have hurt me more to pay for formula than the nipple thrush! Its the best freebie ive ever had! Its a no brainer really.

Ive decided (probably against my better judgement) to paste in a poem i wrote to celebrate the opening of our groups first 'Baby Cafe'. A free cafe with a free creche where pregnant and breastfeeding mums can come along for a chat and some free coffee and biscuits or fruit. You dont even need to talk about breastfeeding if you dont want to!

:<:>:<:>:<:>:<:>:<:>::<:>:<:>:<:>:<:>:<:>:

When I was asked to do this, I scoffed and laughed out loud,
But when I thought about it, I'd try make Molly proud.
I'm no good at poems or saying how I feel,
But I would like to tell you about Molly's very first meal.

From the moment that I knew I had a baby growing inside,
I wanted to give the best that nature could provide.
I wanted to know my baby, I wanted to do my best,
I wanted to feed my child exclusively from my breast.

It came straight from the heart, it came direct from me,
It came pre-made and sterilised, it came completely free.
Its my babies way of telling me to sit down, relax and think,
And the best time to do all that, is when she needs a drink.

We had initial problems, it was a dark and lonely time,
But with good support and sympathy, success would soon be mine.
It took some guts and courage to admit I needed help,
I was close to giving up, I was disappointed in myself.

I found some special people who helped to comfort me,
I made some special friends for life, an extended family.
I gave Molly the best start I could, the statistics say it all,
The best thing I ever did was to give Supporter Line a call.

Now I'm a BfN helper, I want to help you too,
You can feed successfully, I will be here for you.
Molly truly loves it, its a comfort and a joy,
And to get our figures up, perhaps the next will be a boy!

Thanks for the link, interesting reading - as I said, I thought the guidelines referred only to formula. Clearly they are being naughty as by asking for your due date they are clearly targetting preganant women!

I'll still take a free bottle off them though.:evil:

thanks

Thank you

Hi. You seem willing to look into this which is great. The WHO code actually talks about formula and related products. I contacted them for more specific details and they replied including bottles in this list. Afterall, a baby cannot suck on any bottle the way it does at the breast. A bottle fed baby uses its hard palet and cheeks and tongue to feed, a breast fed baby moves the jaw and tongue in a wave like motion. Hence, the reason why bottles are on the list.

the code includes anything which can hinder breastfeeding and this obviously would, particularly in the first couple of months.

Thanks bottle arrived :-)

I can't seem to access the site. It's asking for a login and password
