Re: Do these things make you upset?

But then again, since this in Babies R' Us, there's no reason to hold them accountable for normalizing breastfeeding. They want to sell baby products. That's what this "information session" will be about, so why should their advertizements for it not include those products their interested in selling? You're going to be disappointed if you're expected retailers to normalize ecological breastfeeding. There's no money to be made there. But there are lots of not for profit groups - the AAP, WHO - that are out there promoting breastfeeding without all the gadgets.

Would this sort of thing bother you? I feel this advertisement has a subtle or not so subtle message.
Looks like they will try to sell some bottles!

To me it sounds like they are discussing breastfeeding to bottle. Meaning the range not the switch to bottle.

Re: Do these things make you upset?

It doesn't upset me. Do I wish there was a nursing picture, such as the international symbol for BF with the mom holding the baby, sure but this is America and the fact is not very many people choose to BF. They have to market to the masses to make their money.
