Has Louisville, KY, stolen the E*Trade baby? In a new series of public service ads encouraging breastfeeding, a Louisville public health organization digitally enhanced a baby's mouth with a full set of teeth and a big-girl voice to tout nursing's benefits. The Mayor's Healthy Hometown Movement uses the talking tot to dismiss some of the reasons new moms often turn to the bottle, including statements like, "Some people think breastfeeding in public is nasty, but it’s not," and "with Hooter Hiders, slings, and the old baby blanket over the shoulder technique, Mom can feed me anywhere." The three videos are gaining the attention of the local community and beyond as viewers do double takes at the talking tot.
