Or have I been brainwashed by the Cow and Gate follow on milk ad. DD is 16.5 months and still has breast milk. She has a varied diet but dosn't drink much cows milk. Should I give her follow on milk in order to make sure that she gets her daily dose of Iron or would vitamins be better?
You've been brainwashed . If she eats a varied diet, she'll be getting the iron from protein, green vegetables etc. I haven't given any of my 3 follow-on milk. I do give vitamins in the winter, but I think that's where I've been brainwashed
it's been said but just to add it's a load of old bull. better off with dried apricots as a snack or green veg and if you give very dilute orange juice or something with vit c it helps the iron in the veg or apricots or whatever to be absorbed.
those ads make me beyond angry and wish your msg could be used in a court case. WHO bans any advertising that undermines breastfeeding and that's exactly what this ad has done with you and countless others.
