I think that would be awesome esp for mamas that are struggling with breastfeeding. I vote yes.

I too like the idea of free breast feeding supply offers as well!

The ads wouldn't bother me. People will always need formula because even if everyone who could BF did BF there'd still be that % of mammas who genuinely can't and they need to feed their babies too.

Quoting Mara:" How would you feel if you saw that baby gaga had formula ads on our site and/or offered free samples ... [snip!] ... far we've never done either out of active support for breastfeeding). feel free to leave a more in depth answer below! GO!"

Mara, if you already have abortion ads, what's the issue with formula ads? :lol:

Here in the UK, it's illegal to advertise, reduce the cost of, or give free samples of infant formula. They get around it by creating useless "6m +" stuff which they can advertise and put on offers.



I'm not a fan of formula advertising.

I said sure. I am a breastfeeding advocate, BUT I also understand that this is NOT a medical site. The only time formula samples & advertising truly annoys me is in relationship to MEDICAL sites, Dr's offices, hospitals, etc. This is the most BFing friendly & supportive board I've ever seen - so I can't see that a little formula advertising would be a huge deal to me, but that's just my take.

I voted "meh it's not my site." I am a big supporter of breastfeeding, but I understand that some women are formula feeding. It would be a big help to the women who can't afford formula very well. Plus on a buisness side of things I know forums like this are not cheap to maintain.

There are ads that show up based on your browsing history. I know on occasion I'll see an abortion or "see who's been arrested" ad.
