Today is the anniversary of the WHO Code for Marketing Breastmilk Substitutes. To celebrate this I have joined on the Call of Action to encourage formula companies to stop advertising in healthcare facilities.
This is not anti formula, it is not anti mothers who choose to formula feed, it is against formula companies increasing their profits by undermining the confidence of mothers that chose to breastfeed.
I encourage you to participate by taking a picture of you and your baby (or baby bump) with a sign a long the lines of “No formula ads in hospitals” and post it on the Facebook wall for Enfamil and Nestle and Tweet your picture and share it on other social media.
