Banning baby formula won't work for every case

Published: August 31, 2012

“Hospitals join ‘Ban the Bag'” (News, Aug. 29) demonstrated yet another unfortunate overreaction to a real problem. Yes, women who are able should breast-feed. But as one who adopted, my wife was obviously not able. That bag of formula was a lifesaver for a couple who hadn't been through Lamaze courses or prenatal care training. It enabled us to try out different things, and it took some pressure off a completely overwhelming experience. In other words, not every problem has a cookie-cutter solution. In fact, very few do.
