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!
if only there were such things we could do...
they don't have the BIG money that formula companies have.
breastfeeding is free... *sighs*
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.
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.
Quoting ᗩmandaSixx |33 wks|:" i think its a VERY good idea since formula is so damn expensive!"
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.

the british know what's up on this one.

I have to agree
Quoting Mara:" abortion ads? "
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.

It's the entire EU who enforce the regulations :)
I see one right now for formula samples.

i'm not the one in charge of ads, but wanted to check w/ y'all... i'm just wondering if it's from your browser detecting the nature of the conversation (like chrome does) ... i've got "free stuff" but not free formula ads on mine.
