Seriously, Similac. You Remind Me of a Crack Dealer.

These boxes of free Similac keep arriving at my house. The company thinks we had a baby and wants to make sure we know that our lives would be better if we fed that baby their product instead of breast milk.

Shoving this product down the throats of families and their babies is shady. The months after a child is born are full of uncertainty and worry about so many issues, and the company is attempting to capitalize on that worry by basically getting mothers and their babies hooked on their product, which, by the way, costs a pretty penny.

This is the fourth package that has arrived. They’re really going for it with this campaign. It totally reminds me of a crack dealer, or the shady guy in middle school who said he’d give me a bag of marijuana for free, “But after that, I start charging you.”
