Talking Baby Breastfeeding Ad

Is This Breastfeeding Ad Cute or Creepy?

Has Louisville, KY, stolen the E*Trade baby? In a new series of public service ads encouraging breastfeeding, a Louisville public health organization digitally enhanced a baby's mouth with a full set of teeth and a big-girl voice to tout nursing's benefits. The Mayor's Healthy Hometown Movement uses the talking tot to dismiss some of the reasons new moms often turn to the bottle, including statements like, "Some people think breastfeeding in public is nasty, but it’s not," and "with Hooter Hiders, slings, and the old baby blanket over the shoulder technique, Mom can feed me anywhere." The three videos are gaining the attention of the local community and beyond as viewers do double takes at the talking tot.

I like the breastfeeding message getting out there, but I have to say it was creepy!

I'm not a huge fan of the adult mouth on the baby... were the teeth really necessary? That being said, I'm all for advertising breast feeding. Its a shame that so many people think that it's something to be hidden or not talked about. Its the most natural thing you can do for your baby and whether people agree or not, thats why we have breasts to begin with! I mean, its in the very definition of being a "mammal".
