I really hate advertisements. For anything, not just formula. They're all so misleading it's disgusting.

Formula aimed at breastfed babies. I guess breastfeeding must be digging into their profits.


Whatever your reasons for supplementing remember that any amount of breast milk is better than none, even if you nurse just once or twice a day.

BTW, Hello fellow Junebug! How are you doing?

Jess137 May 23rd, 2013 11:10 AM

Ok...been having contractions for days so I really want this baby out!

How are you?

CeeDee May 23rd, 2013 12:52 PM

I'm doing well. Hopefully your LO will be here soon.

I got this in the mail too and was in shock aswell

This was sent out to you??? I just assumed it was hanging out at a supermarket or something. That's really low of them. Formula is one thing that really should be nationalized. There should be nothing in place that rewards anyone for making a baby's food source as poor quality as possible to sell for as much as possible while spending billions to undermine superior nourishment. Innocents shouldn't be subjected to the whims of the free market. :nope:

My son is on prescription formula and am grateful that formula is an option when needed. Plus many mums don't get on with bf as a personal preference and I don't see how that ad is anti bf at all.

The problem is a lot of mom's give up on breast feeding because they don't have the proper support to continue and work through their road blocks. And it doesn't matter if you signed up or not this was sent out to any mom who's hospital gave similac their information breastfeeding or not,along with coupons. Formula companies do this because that coupon looks really good when the days get tough, and it's easier to take that coupon and get formula sometimes than get help.
