I completely agree with VP, miss kitty and big red and I'm amazed that our opinions are getting turned around into expressing negativity towards formula feeding.

All that said, I'm fairly certain their advertising rules are the same as Australia. The only formula that is advertised here is the next stage for toddlers, they can't advertise the stage one milk.

I was genuinely curious to know why all i hear is applaud for bfs and ffs seems to be a bad thing. Im planning on bfing for only a few months before switching. Given its something i have been thinking about i was genuinely interested to know why there was such a divide.

You cop comments no matter which side of the fence you sit on. I have heard them all from all sides.

But I don't have guilt or resentment. And the only bad feelings I've felt over the years were from med pros and other women trying to make themselves feel superior with their punitive bfing stance.
I think if people think women that are happily bfing will throw in the towel for formula bc they see a Karicare ad, that proves they don't understand the dynamics and complexities of the issue.
Charge!!!! *said Delirium atop of her high horse* LOL

But seriously, the point of advertising *is* to sway people to buy their product.

Yes, but a tin of formula is way different to a magnum ice cream . Most women that bf are doing so for a reason. Bc they believe it's best. It's way cheaper. It's easier (no washing sterilising etc). A Karicare ad is not going to change that. Especially since formula means goes against all those ideals and benefits.
And even if it does.... it's her choice. It's not like formula is poison. It's a close second and babies still thrive. If there were any other topic where education and choices on women's bodies were deliberately hid from them women would be up in arms. Where is the line? Should abortion clinics not be able to be listed in the book bc it 'advertises' termination? Should women not be given education on contraception bc some people in society are catholic? Again where is the line?
