Was it really necessary for Maria to say that she wasn't sure how much the baby was feeding and then for Audrey to say, 'ooh they say breast is best, but look at our Gail....' hmm

lolol i just wrote on another thread that i was off to see if someone had started this. wtF was that about? i hope it's going somewhere, but they've got weird form on this subject.

not to criticise you ilovemydog but i think it'd have gone for a more tabloid headline for this one. wink

I wondered if they were going to turn it into a positive BFing story, but perhaps not?

Perhaps dopey Kirk "not knowing where to look when they do it on the bus" actually normalises it and says more about his type than Bfeeders.

Good point Aitch. Must brush up on my sub editing skills wink

Arrrghhhhhhhhh so bloody annoying! I was hoping that they would take the opportunity to 'normalise' Breastfeeding or at least be many negative comments were they trying to cram in to one scene sad

what did tehy mean look at our gail? do we think she was bf or ff? is she a cautionary tale of overindulgence in sma = you turn into gail?

Corrie does have a history of coming out with random, bizarre bfing comments for no apparent reason.

AitchTwoOh Mon 06-Jul-09 20:51:32

tbh if they don't do something with this story i do think we should write to them and ask why the hell they're doing it.

AitchTwoOh Mon 06-Jul-09 20:53:09

HOW can you ahve the lid on upside down on a STERILISER??!! and now he's going to make the baby up a bottle. i'm really confused by this. who wrote this script, did anyone notice?

nigglewiggle Mon 06-Jul-09 20:53:24

Ahh, the steriliser is on [angry}.

ilovemydogandmrobama Mon 06-Jul-09 20:54:42

Just make up a bottle shall I? hmm

toomuchpicknmix Mon 06-Jul-09 20:55:08

I bet there isn't any bf story, I bet that's it and this baby is now on the bottle forever.meh.

Yes am trying not to be cynical - next episode she will have rung a counsellor right or her midwife will have come round and helped her with positioning? hmm

I just dont understand why, if they cant use it as an opportunity for normal breastfeeding, why they have to promote formula? It gets me angry. Am swearing at the tv again.

peppapighastakenovermylife Mon 06-Jul-09 21:00:19

Come on...lets take bets...which formula company has slipped ITV some money to have their tin all over the place?

Oops, perhaps I am a little cynical grin

how come tony knows how to make up a bottle anyway?

greeneyed Mon 06-Jul-09 21:05:07

I think it has done wonders to promote breastfeeding! One look at Gail has strengthened my resolve not to turn to formula (grin)

peppapighastakenovermylife Mon 06-Jul-09 21:06:28

lol Lockets - or perhaps she will give that bottle of formula, end up struggling with nipple confusion but through a combination of expressed milk top ups which she gradually phases out with the support of her health visitor get back to exclusive breastfeeding?

She then trains as a counsellor and converts the whole of Weatherfield to be breastfeeding supporters...

RascalMama Mon 06-Jul-09 21:06:30

Peppapig - I've just been thinking the same thing. Surely if they don't feel able to support BFing they could at least remain neutral - they were really over the top with being negative about it.

alex7715 Mon 06-Jul-09 21:07:01

i know just watched it why do they have to do that could have been a great thing for breastfeeding . xxxx
