Onesie at Old Navy - Page 2

post #21 of 48
I called their customer service line and complained, the woman was very helpful, she seemed to agree it was offensive (from the drunken standpoint, maybe not so much the breastfeeding standpoint.) I suggested they make the supply and demand shirts, and she thanked me for my suggestion and said she'd pass it on to the marketing team. Who knows, maybe I just got this woman a promotion

you know, I had this problem when looking for some stickers for my scrapbook. EVERY set of baby related stickers had a bottle and/or pacifier!!!!

now I am going to have to go to old navy, find that shirt, take it up to the counter (with my baby nursing in my wrap of course) and ask if they have any that say "got breastmilk?"


(actually my baby has a onsie that says "pacifiers are for sukas")

I agree with whoever it was that said it would be cool w/boobs under the words. I'd buy that!!

b/c it has a bib instead of a breast....

Sorry, as a former bottle feeding mom(who is a bit of a lactivist), I think bashing does no good.. Hey, just pretend it's filled w/breastmilk and get on w/life..

grotesque is too nice a word for it......subversive is more accurate......not that we ever buy from Gap or Old Navy (bad labour practices) but really this is pushing it.: :

Um, blech. The whole "Happy Hour" concept just seems too suggestive of filling the baby's bottle with a beer that I find it pretty offensive regardless of my lactivism stance.

Blech, I'm so sick of the culture being so bottle fixated...as if you can't have a baby without bottles...whatever...

I'm not going to "pretent it's filled with breastmilk and get on with life," because that sort of attitude is exactly why formula companies have been so successful - because people were not willing to speak up. I know I can't change the world on my own, but I'm going to do my part.

Also, what's the deal with the bib shirt? Cole wore a bib every day for 3 months because he drooled so much, he'd go through 4 shirts a day otherwise. And don't forget, babies wear bibs to eat solids. I don't think I've ever seen a baby who had a bib on while having a bottle.

This board is called "Lactivism" for a reason.

This one would be good if the cupcake was a boob (it actually kinda reminds me of one, lol)

Off topic a bit, sorry, But I wonder if they realize that they misspelled POTATOES on this shirt (how would that even get past designers and execs???)???

Perhaps if you don't eat your potatoes, spinach and carrots, you'll end up spelling like them! Another great message to bring to the masses I'd say! Their print designs are messed up!

Just goes to show you what happens when you don't drink your breast milk

I have to agree on the thought that alot of people think no one breastfeeds anymore. I was helping a friend move and her dads partner and me were talking and he heard one of the boys fuss and I came back with him latched on and he actually said to me "you breastfeed? I thought that was like a 40's thing and no one did it anymore" and he was serious!!!

The "Mother Sucker" Shirts I had made are actually Old Navy Long Sleeved Onsies....maybe I should show them to someone at the company....lol

THEY GOT RID OF IT! YAY! And people say lactivism doesn't work! (I called tonight to give a complaint about the veggies and cupcake onesies because they advocate poor eating habits.
