Obviously similac is US. But the ad wouldn't have swayed me to use that brand based solely on that factor.

That fact tells me what I have always maintained - that the reasons we have pretty appalling bfing rates, especially past 6 months is so much more complex than formula advertising.

I still think it was a lovely ad and that I liked the sentiment. It also had no effect on me as a consumer, now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to try and import some Similac formula for DS! 😝

Those big formula making companies made that happened. Way to go :-(
Doctors should be the one educating parents about breast feeding and formula feeding.

We advertise normalizing breatfeeding with the 'would you eat here' campaign. Why is it so wrong to normalize FF for mothers who chose to FF? I guess i just dont get what the big deal is.

I only have one friend who BF in France (amongst 12+ mums), the rest didn't even wanted to give BF a go cause it made them uncomfortable. I think it's more that they have never seen a women in their immediate entourage BF and think it's something that weird hippie people do.
In Australia it's the other way around, I don't even know one mum who didn't try BF...

Formula also isn't 'hidden' from moms. It's very much a well-known option, if it wasn't then I would have more breastfeeding friends, clients and employers.
