sigh craptacular bottle advertorial on Mamamia.

Apparently the bottle they have mentioned holds a natural shape like breastfeeding. Mentioned in context as being appropriate for mixed feeding.

And the f%&kers are refusing to publish my comment pointing out that no bottle mimicks breastfeeding and to select one based on personal preferences rather than unethical marketing.

yeah, nasty advertising. first saying how hard breastfeeding is, that you need to do a lot of research (who has time for that?) and that you'll end up in pain anyway, so why not combine with formula from this bottle that has advertising splashed all over the page. :evil:

advertising like that gives me the shits. Even more so when refuse to take any opinions (or facts) into consideration. Because they are always right of course.

“Midwives are pro-breastfeeding but if you choose not to or can’t then of course we want to help and make sure babies are being fed properly,
and being 'fed properly' (whatever that means) doesnt involve a specific brand of ANYTHING.

Oh those naughty biased midwives. Pro-breastfeeding, how dare they. But just in case you have any nagging doubts, here's a lovely boob-like bottle.
F%&ckers indeed.
