I'm pretty sure the hospital would be a bit funny about us using cloth as they provide pampers and I think it would be seen as a hassle and frowned upon. I would ask them when we would visit again next time, but the practicality of it without our own transport, getting through a huge amount of newborn nappies is really not good. Plus DH would have to wash them then too. It wouldn't bother him as much to use sposies as it bothers me. And even less so if it meant he didn't have to wash nappies. Ideally what you'd want is to be able to have them washed on premises!
The statistics for BFing in Glasgow are really low, so practically everyone formula feeds in the maternity ward. I don't have a problem with that for others, it's just the free formula seems to encourage it even more. That's a whole other conversation though about formula industry and marketing.

Baby Friendly hospitals are not allowed to provide formula (for free or for sale). Parents must provide their own artificial milk.
There should be no display or distribution of any materials produced by the manufacturers of breastmilk substitutes, bottles, teats or dummies in any part of the health-care facility. This includes gifts bearing company logos intended for health professionals (including pens, diary covers, obstetric calculators, notepads, etc) and written materials intended for mothers (including leaflets that do and do not relate to infant feeding).
There should be no sale of breastmilk substitutes on health-care premises.
Health-care facilities should not accept free or subsidised supplies of breastmilk substitutes.
The Southern General Hospital in Glasgow has full accreditation.
