Government Ad Campaign Encourages Breastfeeding

Bookmark and Share

The government is encouraging mothers to breastfeed with an aggressive advertising campaign. The Department of Health and Human Services’ ads suggest that not breastfeeding is actually dangerous to your baby’s health. One of the television ads shows a pregnant woman clutching her stomach while riding a mechanical bull in a bar. The suggestion…its risky to ride a bull, and risky to give your baby formula. The slogan of the campaign…Babies Were Born to Be Breastfed.
Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa is going one step further. He has proposed putting warning labels on cans of infant formula. Here’s an article about this from The New York Times, as well as a Today Show segment that has clips from the television commercials.
