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!

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

Draw a big red circle with a marked out sign over the bottle. And then draw two big breasts, and write: True happiness.

Burn it.

Or return it for something that you might actually want to put on your kid.

I like the marker idea, too.

Or you could use it as a soaker, if you use cd.

Or a spit-up/burp rag, dust rag, etc.

I'll send a link to this thread to ProMom.org for their "3 Minute Activist" thing. They recently put up one for Target's "Formula For Success" outfit.

i just don't get it.. WHY OH WHY is it okay to make this hideously ugly shirts with bottles, promoting bottle feeding??
yet the simple wording of "breast is best" woudl be offensive.... even without the picutre of a breast.
i just shake my head. i really really do.

but don't even get me started on tergets stance on breastfeeding mothers....after my recent conversation with the manager there.. i won't ever return to the store.
so i guess now i have to wonder about old navy as well.
just great

I just heard about this... when I go to the links and the Old Navy website I don't see any shirts with bottles. Can someone update the link or let me know if perhaps Old Navy pulled it from the website. Maybe they are waking up!
