How do you feel about Gerber
selling breastfeeding products? I know we all agree that thier pumps are garbage but what about other things? Like cream for sore nipples? I was at the ped's office last week and they had a hand out on nursing tips and I picked it up. At first I paid no attention to all the advertisement along the side and bottom till I wasnt happy with soem of the info in it. Then I looked and all the ads were for gerber nursing products. I have no idea were the hand out is now. Hubby had it and I will ask him abot it now. So I wont debate the bad info, lol. Just wondering how you feel about Gerber making breastfeeding products. If the stuff works I have no problem with it but I will personaly stick tot he brands I know and are not made by formula companies. But maybe if they make enough money this way they can stop pushing formula so hard? lol. I do see it as a conflict of intrest thou. Just like I would if the LLL or medela started making a formula or just endorsing one. Just wouldnt seem right to me. I wish I could remember what else they were offing because there were a few other things but I only remember the cream. There were no bottles, formula or pacifers advertised. And I thought that part was at least nice. I was back at the peds today and was going to grab another one to post on but They didnt have any. Hmm Iwonder if they were pulled over bad info or were all picked up? It was also put out by one of the big baby magazines but I cant remember which one. I know. I know I shouldnt post half post of info. But I only want to debate Gerber selling things to help with with nursing not the bad info
Ps some of the bad info was that bm can only keepin the fridge for 24 hours. I thought it was longer? And only in any freezer for 3 months. I thought a deep freeze was alot longer. Also it said if you thraw milk in water you can put it in the fridge if it isnt used right away. I thought once milk was thrawed this way it had to be used in a certain amount of time or thrwon away. Now I guess if you do thraw it complelty maybe but it didnt say anything like that at all. I hope I can find it to post who put it out and what was said in it corrertly.
