Some babies get formula. Some babies' lives are saved. And many women never even consider breastfeeding. That's how it is.

It's not our job to SHAME people into nursing or to turn it into something people can't talk about. It's our job to EMPOWER women into doing everything they can to nurse their babies

There are 4.5 stars based on 6 reviews. All of the reviews I can see are saying YAY Formula. Old Navy must have deleted the other reviews.

You can report the rating for being inappropriate. I wonder if the pro-BF comments were reported and removed. Should it be removed from our website? If so, please let us know by clicking the button below. Your request will be sent to us and we'll take appropriate action.

They were probably reported. Some of them were pretty rude, IMO.

I was looking for baby clothes and saw this a couple months back, and I was sad it was formula specific, b/c it excluded me (I wasn't finding a lot of cute stuff and the thumbnail had looked promising), but I saw it just as our culture's bottle-pervasiveness. Like, there are lots of onsies and things with jokes about bottles, and images of bottles everywhere. I think the ON designers were just being oblivious and part of that culture.

When DD was born, a distant relative of my DH (who I've never met) sent us a bunch of clothes for her. One of the items was a pink onesie with a picture of a bottle that said, "Formula for Success." I put it in the "donate" pile, but then changed my mind and threw it in the garbage.

Thats different.

I have a onesie from old navy I bought maybe 3 years ago for dd1. It says "milk addict" on it and has fake milk splashes. I know it doesn't expressly say breastmilk but i like it and it always gets a laugh from others when my girls wore it.

I am not personally offended but I think it looks weird to me.

weeeel,
*I* don't like it. But how many "boob man" shirts are out there? (which FWIW I am not a fan of either)

Come to think of it, I'm not a fan of writing on any shirt. Why does a passing stranger need to know your babies eating habits? Seems like wearing this shirt to a play date would cause things to get catty with a quickness.

Whatever, I think it's goofy, but I think a lot of "witty tees" these days are goofy.

I'm crunchy... Like a Dorito.

It had a picture of a bottle and it said "Formula Powered." It looked like a racing logo, it was probably a play on Formula 1.

I really think this shirt was just a play on words. My nephew has that shirt-his dad is really into racing and thought it was cute and bought it.

 

Even if it weren't...It's a shirt. I see shirts all the time that bother me. I just don't buy them.
