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.
Under the city Health Departments voluntary Latch On NYC initiative, 27 of the citys 40 hospitals have also agreed to give up swag bags sporting formula-company logos, toss out formula-branded tchotchkes like lanyards and mugs, and document a medical reason for every bottle that a newborn receives.
While breast-feeding activists applaud the move, bottle-feeding moms are bristling at the latest lactation lecture.

My gosh what is next for the nanny statists? I hope moms would breast feed, but it is a choice that moms need to make.
He needs to get out of everybody’s business he’s a real JERK!
Let me understand this. Bloomberg is for the murder of the unborn, but is not okay with mothers who let their children live but choose to give them formula?
Bloomberg is finishing out his third term. He’s facing being a private citizen once again and is trying to build a legacy. So he’s going nuts; they all do.
I’m all for encouraging moms to learn that those aren’t just sweater decorations, and I’m all for reducing the advertising the formula companies get to plaster the new moms with, but I’m not sure I like the City government in charge of it.
No big gulps for babies, and no 64 oz. breasts!!
Bloomberg is proof Forrest Gump is not fiction!
Blooombergg should go and suck the piiig!
Screwed up NYC streets with idiotic trafic lanes and blew millions on lower case lettered street name signs.
Tunnel toll hikes, crazy real estate taxes.... what’s next? Pay for breathing?
Do you think he is going to NOT run for a 4th term? Prior to his managing to get the city’s 2 term limit for mayor changed to let him and his control freak ego run for a 3rd term. Do you think his ego and power hungryness will let him step aside? And the sheeple there will follow orders and re-elect him.
I thought it was a woman’s right to choose. Oh wait, that’s only if you want to murder your baby. My bad.
NYC is the abortion capitol of the USA. Your baby is more likely to die from an abortion than from being bottle fed.
A city long-noted for crime, drugs, filth, piss-poor public schools and illegal immigrants . . .
And this full-of-himself billionaire worries about formula?
This is why the elites are so out of touch with mainstream Americans and why they must be kept of office from the start or term limited (one term, max.)
This man is insane.
Send him to jail for practicing medicine without a license!
This jerl lives in a make believe world.
wtf is a jerl he is a jerk
Hey New York, How do you like being totally controlled by a MARXIST?
YOU GET WHAT YOU DESERVE! LIVE WITH IT!
