There are 2 ads in this series that I have seen. One involves a first time mom packing the kid up in a stroller grabbing anything and everything to take with them in a diaper bag all neat and tidy. Then we get a caption that says "second child" and we see her just walk past a bowl of something, looks like cereal, grab a handful and keep walking out the door.

Ok, that's stupid. She doesn't even put it in a baggy. Kids need snacks and water, being a "second time mom" doesn't mean you automatically stop giving a sh*t.

THEN we get to the other ad in the series, which is down right stupid. First time mom is breastfeeding in public behind a plastic tree with a blanket over her baby, peering around cautiously. AKA the socially acceptable way of breastfeeding in public. By second baby she has her whole boob hanging out of her shirt while sitting at her table in the middle of a restaurant, baby feeding away. When the shocked waiter arrives she clicks her finger and says "eyes up here".

WHAT?! Ok I know this whole "women should be able to breastfeed freely in public" thing is really big right now, but I just don't "get" it. What's so wrong with using a shawl to shield the baby and boob from public gawkers? I know that when my baby comes and I feed it's going to be in a private location when I'm in public. Bathroom, my car, whatever. It's not because I feel ashamed or feel like I have to, I just HATE PEOPLE. I don't want anyone gawking at my baby feeding, much less see my entire boob out of my shirt. What happened to modesty? A need for personal privacy? What about having a second kid says "hey world, look at me, I don't give a sh*t about you and your modesty!"

Worst ads ever.

I had to laugh when I saw this commercial.  "Eye's up here?" - hey if you are out there in public.... sorry it's fair game.  No harm no foul.

It's really hard to not look at a woman breastfeeding.  It's like trying to not look at a woman's cleavage. 
 
Come to think of it, it's pretty much the same thing---'cept more.

At least in this case the baby covers most of the boob anyway, it's not like there's much to see. My biggest problem is the extended version of this ad where she keeps berating the stunned waiter saying "yeah she already ordered so....come on now". Like she's being snippy and rude. I'm sorry but like Chet said, if you're going to put it out there like that, some people are going to notice, and a few of them will be frozen, like mr. waiter here. No need to be a bitch about it. Also the ad makes it known that this is some sort of fancy restaurant, aka somewhere kids probably aren't normally present. Of course he's going to be a little taken off guard.

What a delusional bitch.  "Eyes up here!"   Sorry lady, but he's not trying to get a cheap thrill because your shirt is opened ... EVERYONE is gonna look down involuntarily when you have an infant attached to your bosom, just like everyone would look involuntarily if some guy's pants fell down and his fat hairy ass was exposed.

Well, that's a relief! (ie Luv's breastfeeding, etc.)
 
For a moment there I thought Luv's had released Luv's Hand-Me-Down Diapers, "the diaper you can save and reuse for your next kid"....  LOL

Of course he is not oogling her (sp). He is just having a WTF moment. I would love to wipe that smirk off of her face with the back of a red hot shovel!

I think that when he noticed the baby, he should've said "Oh, what a cute little baby..." and started oohing and ahhing about what a great little baby he is, rub his head, ask what his name is, etc.  Mom wouldn't know what to do.  Hell, if public breastfeeding is supposed to go unnoticed, and the guy's simply admiring a cute baby, what can Mom say?

I don't think that was the reaction she was after. She was probably looking for a reason to get the innocent waiter fired to excert her control over others. Remember the smirk.

^  Exactly.  On the one hand, she doesn't want you to look.  But on the other hand, she demands you notice what she's doing.  So the waiter's damned if he does, damned if he doesn't.

I wonder if she ordered milk with her meal.
 
Naaah.  Probably just asked for an empty glass.  And then complained her milk was sour.

By the third child, she's using store-bought milk.  The fourth kid gets soda.

*I* don't see all the hooplah over this commercial.
We've had *5* pups an'a 'gran'spit'; the whole concept of 'passing it on down' really applies, kiddos - there's a permanent 'bonding effect' that naturally occurs as you pass on down the belongings - clothes, toys, and whatnot. Suggest you skip the diapers, though (that's just 'baaaad bonding', doncha know! Kinda like 'cement bonding') - and, well, when it comes to 'breastfeeding', if DAD wants in, everyone else loses. Got it? Get it.

People hate this commercial for the wrong reason. It deserves hate because it's sickening to see the stupidity of covering up something as natural and necessary as breastfeeding. I can't stand this new culture where people are disgusted and offended by a mother feeding her child in the healthiest and most natural way possible. All mothers did it publicly before this idiotic modern era; Nobody made a big deal about it until you modern pop-parenting nuts did.

I guess I should be happy that 'covering it up' was portrayed as something that'd be done by a stupid new mother, who probably read a dozen pop-parenting books telling her not to cut the cord until the kid is 18, and showed us that the behavior would stop with some real experience and education.

You're not going to win any converts by calling people who disagree with you idiotic and stupid, and implying that they're unnatural for disagreeing with you. This is a topic on which reasonable people can disagree. There are a range of viewpoints on the appropriateness of a woman baring her breasts in public, even if it's for the ever so noble and unimpeachable purpose of feeding a child. These debates are better hashed out in Mommeee Forums and Jezebel.com. As you hopefully noticed, people here had a number of issues with this ad, and the woman's smugness is #1.

I have no idea how they did it "back in the day". I know from the 50s on breastfeeding went out of style in favor of formula, and only in the last 20 years or so has it made a huge comeback. I can't imagine a woman in the 1920s whipping her boob out in public to feed her infant. Women from National Geographic, sure, but I don't think it has ever been this way in the US. If we want to talk natural let's talk no diapers!

All I know is, I'm pregnant, I intend to breast feed, I will not be feeding with my breast out in the middle of a restaurant. Nature has nothing to do with it. Baby doesn't care if it's covered, being fed out in the open, in a restroom, etc. Baby just cares to suck on your boob. It's mom that takes issue with covering. It's like parents who refuse to take a screaming child out of a restaurant because "they deserve to be there". Yeah, sure, but you're annoying everyone around you. It's not about YOU all the time. Same thing with every dog owner in my neighborhood sticking the dog in the backyard letting it bark because it's convenient. Again, stop being a lazy entitled ass and think of how other people might feel. Whether other people want to see my boob or not, I don't think it's completely necissary to show it.
It's ok, I'm in marketing!

WinkWelllllll, let me tell you a little bit of this about that, HD.
Waaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy back when MissyDWolf was 'feedin' da'younguns', she was coy and reserved about this activity. She'd excuse herself and the little blabbering bag o'flesh and feed it in a private setting.
I agree - no need to be all 'Mother Nature', in public - too many opportunities to either offend someone, maybe yourself, or bait an 'unsavory individual', as much as I hate to say it.
