Season 1 Episode 43 - Eva.
|I know, I think so too. :P|
Hip hip hurray for the Take Home Chef! Thank you for having breastfeeding be a part of your show as it is a part of our daily lives and is nothing for the editing room floor.
This made me super happy to see, and just affirms even more one of the ways of exposing breastfeeding I'd like to see on Sesame Street. It doesn't need to be a segment dedicated to talking about breastfeeding, but throw us a bone here Sesame Street.... alternate in nursing and bottle feeding mothers into the backgrounds. Nearly 34,000 petitioners have signed saying they want breastfeeding included in the program, and that number grows daily. Sesame Streets only response is to say that it hasn't fit in with the natural storyline plot. Really... in 25 years there hasn't been one opportunity to showcase or even just having a nursing mother in the background? Pretty weak argument there folks.
P.S. Hey, have you signed the petition yet??
*Eva - please take a lesson in babywearing from your brother-in-law... "crotch dangling" babywearing can be damaging to your baby's hips. Very easy mistake to make and one I definitely made myself.
