    Why can't America have kick ass ads like this!

    Advertisements

    That is one story about the breastfeeding adverts.

    NOW check out this rocking website for it. The pictures are amazing and I love that they used just plain old regular moms to do this!
    the pictures:http://www.beastar.org.uk/the-be-a-star-girls and how they look as adverts: http://www.beastar.org.uk/archives/46
    the main page: http://www.beastar.org.uk/

    They used all young mothers including teen mothers. (which is because many teen mothers do not breast feed)

    That is really well done. I definitely think the BFing needs more advertisement in the US, maybe that will spread over here from the UK.

    We don't have more ads like that because the majority of us are prudish about the most natural of things. It's saddening and maddening, really.

    I like those ads in particular because there's nothing to be prude about in them. Fully dressed women (still bfing but baby's head obscures the nip) just a reminder that BFing is an option too, since we're inundated with the formula ads everywhere lately.

    I DON'T like the ones from Brazil (I think it was?) where it's nipple sitting there in the frame and oh here comes baby to latch on it. That I wouldn't want on tv/in magazines personally.

    It seems like all of it is taboo here. If you breastfeed no one had better see it because that is just unsightly. If you don't breastfeed you are starving your baby and a horrible mother. This country needs to get over itself.

    I think the ads are great.

    Puerto Rico I love that one because it shows babies of ALL ages nursing. The WIC breastfeeding ads have a naked breast with a baby latched on (thats it just a big naked breast and the baby latched it is an extreme close up) much like the over of Baby Talk magazine was. They also have ads with just a mom sitting and they are varied in how much is exposed. It is always just one mom and baby.
