    Most hospitals give out a free sample bag to every new born, so to a certian extent when a baby is born they and the family are introduced to the multi billion dollar industry of baby stuff...
    If Disney is out all should not be allowed... There is no harm to disney being allowed in
    This.

    As soon as you know you're going to have a kid, you're inundated with companies trying to get you to sign up for this and buy that and, usually, you get a diaper bag from the hospital filled with samples and pamphlets. Frankly, I'm surprised Disney hasn't jumped on this sooner.

    My son was born 30 years ago, and even then we were pushed into signing up for a movie camera program (yeah, no cam corders yet ) and Johnson and Johnson baby toys. Not much different than today.

    I don't know what to think about this... While it is nice to hand out a "freebie" to new parents, there is something almost "stalkerish" about being there waiting for the baby to be born for the sake of marketing and merchandise.

    I have to think about this one...

    Exactly. When my kids were born (here in Orange County), we got gift packages of diapers from Pampers, free onesies from Carters, free baby food from Gerber, and a few other free items from various baby-oriented companies. This isn't any different, and IMO, it's certainly not newsworthy.

    Can't any moment in life not be an occasion to merchandise? Tacky.

    A couple of things:

    1 - Disney can't be blamed for this, given the fact that dozens of other manufacturers have done this long before Disney. So if it's tacky, then they're all tacky, and not Disney alone.
    2 - I don't know any parents of newborns who have objected.
    3 - This isn't newsworthy in any way, shape, or form. Why it's getting print time is beyond me.
