    You'd be judged for feeding breastmilk.

    So I don't think the issue is with the advertising ban.
    That may be true of France but it's most certainly judged here. I think the issue is an overall one. People and authorities wanting to control what women do with their bodies then discounting that control and judgment when women point it out.

    And taking it back to the OP, the amount of bfers commenting that the Mummy Wars doesn't exist from this ad does nothing but further the divide. Bc it most certainly does.

    I agree. Of course you are being judged here for feeding formula.

    My point is that advertising is not the solution to this issue.

    To be honest, you'd be judged whatever you do so I think the best solution is to be secure in your choice and let the judgement go like water off a ducks back.
    Who cares if you know you are doing what is best for you and your family.

    Yep I agree. Truth is I don't care an iota what others think of my feeding (or parenting) choices. I feel completely secure. My fight is for the women that don't feel that way. Just like a woman that happily uses a bfing cover of her own choice but still fights to have bfing in public supported and respected.

    Would you mind linking that? I'd be interested to read it. When I chose a formula, I did so based on anecdotal evidence from friends.

    It was normal for ME. It needed to be, otherwise my baby wouldn't have lived.

    Yes but it's still not as easily or readily available as formula.

    I agree with you wholeheartedly. It's still another alternative nevertheless

    *controversial comment warning*

    TBH, even if given the option of donor milk, I'd feel more comfortable with formula.

    Hypocritical I know.
