On another forum I found this out found that boots don't give loyalty points on formula milk and apparently a lot of places like tesco dont either. What are your views on this? I have seen several petitions to try and stop this.
I think its good to try and promote breastfeeding but this has caused outrage among non breastfeeding mothers.
perhaps this is old news I only just heard of it.
Found this to when I was googling
