Evenflo - no longer code-compliant

The Evenflo video here is just awful in so many ways. They make breastfeeding out to be inconvenient and embarrassing. And I can't believe how the moms just caves to her pushy MIL - ugh.

I don't give a rats rump about the WHO code. But the video makes me want to drive down there and start ranting. Idiots.

eta: on the YouTube site there are 207 thumbs down and 6 thumbs up. That made me a little happy.

and I flagged it for abusing vulnerable individuals.

Looks like the video is now marked private. I was not able to view it.

well well well... I'm glad they pulled it.
Kinda hope they issue an apology. Maybe that's vindictive of me, but the world doesn't need any help thinking BFing is weird or gross on inconveniencing.

I do think it served that FIL right, accidentally putting the pumped milk in his coffee. Although, the working mom in me feels the pain of that "wasted" milk

Re: Evenflo - no longer code-compliant

Saw this yesterday and it made me so mad!! And I have been there with my MIL, but still was not amused. Looks like it is still private though so they muct have gotten a lot of negative feedback. Thanks for reminding me I wanted to email them!
