It's a fact that Breastmilk is better than formula for babies.
If advertising for formula is allowed, those ads would find a way to make FF look sexier, easier, healthier, and just the right way to do thing.
As long as parents get the proper information through other channels (medical professionals) then that's all we need.
While I am not comparing the products, look at what Australia succeed with the ban of advertising smoking products.
So yes let's ban fat/naughty food advertising during kids programs on TV too

Look I kind of get your point. I have an issue with CC and pre schools that are privately run. I don't believe the care of children should fall into the domain of profit. I find it unethical. The bottom line is that is my stance. As I said, my choice of formula would not be swayed either way by advertising, but my view is more of an idealistic one. We have a whole range of goods and services in the world that can allowed to be advertised that can be and are harmful. Yet they still advertise. Banning formula advertising just smacks of control, value judgment and creates all the discussions going on now.

The bottom line is often there is no proper information through other channels. It's like a complete information lock down, like you are asking how to make meth amphetamine lol It's all so frustrating and I feel like at 35 I'm a naughty child in the time out corner. YKWIM? lol

Now formula has been saving a babies' lives all over the world. I wouldn't feel guilty for feeding my baby formula but that is just me.
I'm sorry you can't see my point but I'm glad that the Australian health public policy makers do see it.

I'm not saying current FF think it's easier/sexier etc, I'm saying creative media agencies will make future mums think this way with clever ads that girls will have seen on TV from a young age.
And again advertising = MISinformation.
If we need more/better information about formula, let's look at what medical professionals can offer and improve.

The OP is about an ad that got lots of strong feedback on social media.
I assume it's ok to discuss the ad and its limits.

Sure, and I actually agree with you. I want women to know the truth about formula AND bfing. I want women to ff with their eyes wide open not thinking it's 'easier' (it isn't).
But then I come back to advertising in general. In no other situation except drugs, and don't get me started about alcohol advertising, do we so heavily restrict adults choices and access. If everything that was remotely harmful was banned from advertising it would be different. But it isn't. we have so many issues with alcohol yet it's everywhere but formula is banned. Can you see why ffers would be p*ssed by that?
