Well, I'm the dissenter here. I don't think the tee-shirt AT ALL implies that formula is superior to breastmilk. At most, it implies that baby gets energy from formula (which, I must say, is true... even if it's nutritionally inferior, babies still survive on it).
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.

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.
*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.

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.
