Do you bring your own infant formula to the hospital the day you deliver just in case you can't breast feed?
As i'm afraid I can't BF immediately and I prefer to give my baby dumex so thinking should i bring my own and pass it to the nurse?
you can always pass to the nurse if you preferred to use yr own formula to feed yr baby.
if nothing stated they will use whichever brand they think fit.
anyway we wouldnt know which brand will be suitable until baby drinks it. So no harm tryin also.
Hospitals normally have a range and the nurses will ask you which is your preferred brand.
i think if you can mix the formula by your own then it shouldn't be problem, but if you ask the nurses to do it, I'm not so sure they have the time as they also taking care other babies?
but maybe you can try to approach the nurses before deliver and ask how is their response. If they dont't mind then you can go along bring your own formula...
Or maybe they have Dumex available for your newborn..
i wanted to bring my own formula too but my bag wasn't ready & my boy came earlier then expected(waterbag broke in office) thus bag was packed halfway at home so endup in a rush, hubby also forgot to bring formula to hospital.
just to let you know, Mt A is feeding similac for babies.
