Don't think I'd call it the best ad ever, it's just an ad. But I'm a pretty odd duck when it comes to advertising in general., and how it's used.
I don't think it will either normalize or cause a set back. I doubt it would be as widely seen as some think-which would be necessary for either to take place.
Not to mention most of the oreo ads(in fact a lot of ads in general) are more tongue in cheek than anything else. So not real sure how that would help normalize anything. Most would put too much focus on the fact that they think the child is too young for an oreo to begin with, lol.
As for facebook, I don't much care to be honest. Yeah I know worse stuff gets posted on there all the time and never removed-or at least not removed until someone reports it. But things linked by others are more likely to be seen by more people, and also therefore more likely to be reported and/or removed. I don't know whether it actually does violate their TOS or not. If it does, they'd be well within their rights to remove it. If it doesn't, all they'd be doing is creating an unnecessary conflict. Either way doesn't really affect me much at all.
OH MY GAWD! IT'S A BEWBIE!! AAAAAAH!! CALL TEH POLEESE!
I think it is adorable. It isn't being used in the US, though, because Americans are too offended by the very thought of a desexualized breast. Replace the baby with a pastie or an infant sized bikini top and slap the name of a strip club, a sports bar, a plastic surgeon, etc and no one bats an eyelash.

My question to facebook is why can an underage tween post provocative pictures on their facebook wall that even Hustler would find fitting for it's mag, tag their friends in it while they all call her sexy, and leave those images up. They promote teenagers exploiting themselves no problem...but an advertisement for a national brand is banned?....explain that to me, Mark.
So Facebook uses a program to review the pictures so it's very objective - a bare breast is a bare breast no matter what it's used for. They don't have 100 people review each picture individually. So there are limitations to do this type of thing with automation.
For me, the ad is fine. I do think bf ads would go over better in the US if they used an infant. I think the problem isn't the boobie but that this kid has enough teeth to eat an oreo & not everyone is comfortable with extended bf. I think a picture with a 3-6 month old baby would be seen much differently. But people want to push the envelope so they use an older child.
