Mayor Bloomberg Pushes Women To Breastfeed. All Signs Point Toward Nanny State..

The nanny state is going after moms.

Mayor Bloomberg is pushing hospitals to hide their baby formula behind locked  doors so more new mothers will breast-feed.

Starting Sept. 3, the city will keep tabs on the number of bottles that  participating hospitals stock and use — the most restrictive pro-breast-milk  program in the nation.’But it’s our job to educate them on the best option.’

Under Latch On NYC, new mothers who want formula won’t be denied it, but  hospitals will keep infant formula in out-of-the-way secure storerooms or in  locked boxes like those used to dispense and track medications.

With each bottle a mother requests and receives, she’ll also get a  talking-to. Staffers will explain why she should offer the breast instead.

“It’s the patient’s choice,” said Allison Walsh, of Beth Israel Medical  Center. “But it’s our job to educate them on the best option.”

Bloomberg works to get womens mind right.. All signs point toward nanny state.
