Ok it was stupid of him to name the brand but why do the BBC who don't advertise do interviews in supermarkets full of brand names on the shelves in the first place?
Whether the baby is formula feed or breastfed is nothing to do with anyone but his parents, maybe he suddenly realised he had better buy more before he went home!
It was just Ed Milliband being Ed Milliband,dithering a bit,looking awkward,saying the wrong thing.Wondering if he might be another Boris,but without the charisma .Alright he shouldn't be endorsing any brand,I don't think he could do that even if he had intended to,but from the clip I saw it was a passing comment when he was doing something unrelated in a supermarket.
I do think too many people have too much too say about how people live their lives,especially when it comes to the decisions we make with regards to our children.Whether you breastfeed or bottle feed,you're still feeding your baby.I've been lucky too have been able to breastfeed some of my children,but I've also had to bottlefeed some of them because it just did not work.It's made absolutely no difference to their health or well being.All parents have a right to make an informed decision based on what suits them ,their baby and their circumstances without the breastfeeding zealots appearing to pat themselves on the back because they did so well,and passing judgement on those who don't.
