So I had a doctors appt the other day and since I'm 38 weeks I decided it was about time for me to discuss my birth plan. Everything went pretty smoothly until we came to the part about breastfeeding. My dr says she and the nurses at my hospital do encourage BF but that while I'm in the hospital if my milk hasn't come in and the baby is not getting enough nutrients that the pediatritian will recommend giving some formula. I DO NOT want this at all. I'm not sure I understand right, doesn't it take a few days for the milk supply to come in anyways, and won't baby be just fine with colostrum? Also can they actually give my baby formula without my consent? I was not happy to hear this at all.
