So, playing devil's advocate. You don't think, if a company that specializes in breastfeeding, like meldela or spectra, made this same ad to promote a breast pump that some who formula feed wouldn't get their undies in a bunch and say they're forcing breastfeeding down our throats, yada yada yada?

This video says it's okay to breastfeed or formula feed which is the whole point. If a breastfeeding group or company wished to make the same point formula feeders would be overjoyed - at least I would - (having said this I'm still breastfeeding 4 month old DS and breastfed DD until 3.5 months - but I prefer formula feeding for many reasons and will be FF DS pretty soon too)

I thought the add was great. To me its just saying people 'mummy bash' eachother all the time when at the end of the day we all love our kids and we are all parents.
I have seen enough of it on here to figure out how much it happens...circumcision, SOS, CIO, breastfed vs formula, schooling choices..and my firstborn isnt even here yet! Frankly i think i will be very quiet when my bub comes as i already know i will be scrutinized for my beliefs.
I thought it had a great message. Why act like overgrown teenagers when you all have a common goal, support eachother!
I wouldnt care who made it, as i dont have a parenting style yet. Lol

Also if there was no mafia, then advertising 0-12 months formula wouldn't be banned in Australia.

Could it be that the breast feeding mafia, as you say, are the ones ruining it for themselves and people are just tired or the incessant formula bashing and transparent sanctimonious attitudes?
I think the 'you just feel guilty/resentful' not only lacks real reflection as to what is really going on but is very common on this forum in the years I have been there. Bc blaming the ffer who is annoyed is easier than actually reflecting on one's own behaviour and the effect it has on others.
