Breastfeeding on Sesame Street, Please.
A few years ago, someone pointed me to this Sesame Street clip from 1977 with the wonderful Buffy breastfeeding her baby Cody and Bigbird asking all about it. Since that day, I have returned to the clip several times – both alone and to share with my children.
Today, I was happy to discover this piece on Huffington Post where mothers are calling on Sesame Street to bring breastfeeding back to Sesame Street. It is actually pretty hard to fathom that it is controversial to include breastfeeding in the mix of ways to feed babies along with bottle feeding. The piece includes several links to clips which show how breastfeeding was removed from other Sesame Street pieces over the years including this sweet version of You’re My Baby which includes a brief breastfeeding clip that was removed from a later version.
You can sign the petition too by following this…

Here is one more reason to boycott facebook, if selling your personal information to other corporations and the government wasn’t enough…
For a few years, facebook has been giving warnings and disabling accounts that have breastfeeding photos and artwork.
I am one of those people who have been permanently removed from facebook and who chooses not to return under another email, also against their “rules.”
Stand with me, post your breastfeeding photos or public domain artwork and photography on your facebook profile.
If they warn you and/or disable your account, boycott them.
