Got so irratated today..

I was wandering around in Kohls baby department and stopped to look at the bibs that have all those cutesy sayings on them. Most of them were kinda cute but then I got to one that went like this..

Clean diaper (checkmark)
Bottle of formula (checkmark)
= Happy baby!

OMG. I nearly had a hissy fit right there in the store! Where is the breastmilk bib???

I think a saying of " full bottle" or even "full tummy" would have been more apropriate and prob would sell better, but to say formula to me seems "generic" and tacky

it could say = gross smelling spit up??
ok sorry, maybe that was uncalled for, but honestly!

Re: Got so irratated today..

But some of us CAN'T breastfeed! I tried and bullied myself for 8mos with our daughter before accepting it wasn't happeneing with us. It's different this time around but I don' have a problem with that slogan. Mamma put their babies in shirts and onsies that are pro-cloth diapers and breastfeeding so why can't a mamma who cannot nurse put their baby in something they think is cute.
I'm just looking at it from both sides of the boat because I genuinely have been on both sides.
This slogan wasn't a jab or advertisement for formula and it certainly wasn't anti-nursing. It simply was just worded in a way you would have prefered it not to be.
I personally don't put my kids in anything with words, no do I wear anyting with words on it so I guess I'm neither here not there with it.
'Just my 2 cents - please don't shoot me for it.
