Similac ads

I thought this was a breastfeeding-friendly site?? I think I'd prefer the Dell ad.

Breastfeeding friendly doesn't mean anti-formula. Just ignore the ads or use firefox with ad blocl

Quite a few of us had to use formula for one reason or another. This question should not have even been posted - it just seems like a slam on FF mamas.

I aggre with op. Its a known 'booby trap' and most likely violates the WHO code for advertising a bm substitute.

Re: Similac ads

if someone has such little faith in BF that a simple ad changes their mind, then they werent going to succeed at it anyways. its not a big deal.
