First, to put it in context, here are the two posts I wrote about Philips ignoring dads:
1. Philips Norelco: Parenting is No Place for Men
2. Philips Norelco 2: Now With More Offensive Marketing!!!
Thanks to everyone who shared these posts on Facebook and on Twitter, and especially to Zach from 8bitdad for emailing Philips and tweeting its PR account. I don't know who or what eventually made Philips change their website (they didn't let me know about the changes), but I'm glad it happened. Today, Philips deserves my gratitude*.
* It's a small victory for fathers and for parents in general, but I have to mention that once I saw the changes on the Philips Norelco site, I quickly checked the Philips Avent site. Unfortunately, everything is still the same there. The baby-bottles are under the "Mother and child care" section, and the section titled, "Tips for bonding with your baby" still ignores fathers (and as mentioned in the previous post, tells mothers to invite their friends to look after the babies while the moms have a Me Time tending the garden).
Well, change takes time, but any positive change, no matter how big or how small, and no matter how many footnotes it contains, is a move forward.
