Very interesting doc on TV at the moment.
Marmite were going to do an advert for their Love/Hate campiagn (you know where people hate marmite so much they go to extremes to get it out their mouth).
It looked really good. 
Had a mother breastfeeding in the middle of the night, she reached over to have a slice of toast with marmite.
After swallowing it, there was a pause and then the baby spat the milk at her and started to cry (presumably because the baby hated marmite you see).

I thought it was such a good idea, and also was quite excited about(finally) a normal depiction of BF on the telly (even though the end is a joke).
All their focus groups loved it- for much the same reason.

Then at the last minute the advertising standards put a halt to it "For matters of good taste".  Now they didnt explain it fully - so possibly the bad taste was refferring to the spitting rather than the BF - but I have my suispicions... after all we have seen spitting on adverts  but not BF.
HMM :mad:
