Johnson & Johnson can fuck the fuck off. Vivisecting wankers.
My beautiful DD's have grown beautiful and very much loved without the use of chemical laden, animal tested shite. angry

39 weeks pregnant and it has made me cry four times so far. Fucking advert.

It's the sibling jealously following by cute siblings kissing that got me...

Just saw the advert - can't say it particularly 'moved me'. As has been previously said, I can't imagine what effect that advert might have on couples who are unable to conceive. It seems to give the impression that a family is nothing without a baby. I just found it a bit hmm

On the other hand - a very sweet DNA Result episode of Jeremy Kyle just bought a tear to my eye. Much more genuine than a staged advert.

sad. It all looks so perfect. When we have given our newborns their baths, there's a lot of team tagging and water spillage by DH and me, where we swap holding baby in different positions and then the other sweeps water over and then one person consoles crying baby has they get restless. grin. That dad looks too relaxed bathing the baby!

Even DH said it was a great ad last night.

And he's so not a baby person.

It was my DH that told me about it. I cried when watching. Never used Johnson's either but that's beside the point. A very touching advert.

And it would have killed me when I was unable to have children. It does make me so grateful now that I'm not in that awful state.

Just had a little cry at that advert, it all looked so perfect! (Not like us with my EMCS, bathing baby cackhandedly in the kitchen sink, toxic grandparents who knew no boundaries, DP going straight back to work etc etc).

Makes me want another one, DD is only 6mo.

Doesn't get to me nope - well not the bulk of it - the siblings kissing bit does slightly but that's cos that's what my pair are like. I don't fall for the intentionally tugging on the mummy heartstrings stuff as a rule though.

Now if you'd shown me a pair of nice squidgy baby thighs I would have been sold.

Also doesn't accurately portray the fact that DH seems to think bathing one baby involves every single surface in the bathroom being covered with towels, water and bubbles... and him stripping down topless to stop his clothes getting wet - but that's probably just my husband.

Agree that it must be awful to watch for those unable/struggling to conceive. I know it would have killed me to watch it while we fought our uphill battle.

Now I'm 19 weeks pregnant with our hard won baby and it reduced me to a blubbering mess blush
