New York City Hospitals Discouraging Bottled Formula for Babies

Posted: Updated:

New York's Mayor Michael Bloomberg is locking up the baby formula, because he wants newborns to drink breast milk instead. He's using his mayoral power to direct maternity-ward nurses to hide baby-milk formula.

He's using his mayoral power to direct maternity-ward nurses to hide baby-milk formula after Sept. 2 so that new moms feel pressured to provide breast milk to their newborns.

Bloomberg's mammary-mandate is supported by white-coated public-health officials, who say the scientific data shows that mothers' milk aids infants' digestive systems and shields them from some diseases.

His wishes are law because he controls much of the city's health network in a city-wide version of Obamacare.
