My 3 week old son was admitted to a paediatric general ward for help with broncholitis recovery. My son is exclusively breast fed. Paediatric general wards do not have "budget" for feeding parents. Therefore I had to leave him to go and buy food to ensure I had the milk supply to feed my son. Apart from providing a bed and oxygen, the ward did not have to supply us with anything. Bit concerning and more than borderline ridiculous. I work and pay taxs and would expect to be supported in providing milk for my infant son.
