    Not really, mums go back to work when bub is 2.5 mo on average.

    You get a sleep deprived, desperate mumma and initially they will pick the brand they've heard about. Subliminal messaging .

    Yes, many things are advertised. Clearly you don't think you fall under their spell

    Formula comes from a COW. It is not normal and should not be thought of as such. It has become normalised. I can't blame people for thinking like this when they sell baby dolls in shops with bottles.

    No, i dont think that at all. After working in retail and marketing for years i know all about it. I just happen to have enough brains to not see a certain pair of jeans on TV and run out to buy them. I still know those jeans might not suit me, or fit me, or i might not need jeans! Geez you dont give people much credit in the brains department...

    Maybe im just under the impression that people arnt all totally devoid of free will.

    Most only compare OECD nations, but I did find the too 10 bf nations. Interestingly, they are all very poor countries in Africa, South America and Asia.

    What's the point of advertising then if nobody ever 'falls' for it?
