That is why we no longer carry advertising from one pump company in Essence.
Which is good, but sadly there's still a whole bunch of them sitting on shop shelves with ABA stickers all over them. :(

Sorry to go a bit OT BiN, but one of the funniest things I have read (maybe blactivist) was about how only white people in white clothes in white rooms can breastfeed their babies - you all know the ads I'm talking about, right?

AAAarg there's a new toddler milk TV ad out that I haven't seen before. Lots of cute babies with speech bubbles talking about how breastmilk is best but then there's our wonderful toddler milk. And seriously, those babies must be JUST over 12 months because they don't look like toddlers, they look like babies. It looks so blatantly like an ad for formula!

Maybe we should hand out rings instead of fridge magnets if they are so important for lactation?
