About Me

Maybe if I stop changing my mind on what I want to be when I "grow up" I'll end up with a degree and a job! Right now, I'm about to start a new school... I have a wonderful son and awesome hubby. I am a flutist and bassoonist, music is my first love.

I Can't Stand Formula Companies

So, after receiving my third piece of mail from Enfamil this week, I decided I had to call and have myself removed from their mailing list. I bet Babies 'R Us sold them my name and address. Could have been someone else, but I bet it was them.

I get really sick of all the advertising they are allowed to do, and all of the free samples they are allowed to give away. I'm sure if these large corporations didn't have lobbyists in congress, this would be outlawed. In my opinion, no mother should be encouraged to CHOOSE to give her baby formula if she is perfectly capable of producing breastmilk. I know that millions of babies do thrive on it, and it is necesary for some situations. I just don't see how someone could choose convienience over the health (and IQ) of their child.
