I've said it before and I'll say it again, I hate Winnie the Pooh. I hate most modern Disney images. The horror of the sickly bright colours mixed with the cheesy demented grins of the characters leaves me cold.
However this is not what this post is about, this post is an honest appeal to leading baby brands to reconsider their use of the images on products.
The biggest culprit is Huggies and Pampers who both adorn their nappies with these characters inanely grinning out at us as we craddle our newborn babies.
Personally yes I choose to use disposables but I wish everyday as I do that they would make them plain or at least classic in appearance.
Most parents will agree there is nothing more gorgeous than a newborn in a plain white babygrow. ( See mine above for proof! ) So why then are leading brands forcing us to conceal Winnie the Pooh and Sesame Street underneath them, laying hideous Chavness next to such fragile skin?
I can only take comfort in the fact that my daughter does her worst on them everyday.
