Update: The breastfeeding sit-in at the Facebook headquarters in Prineville, OR was cancelled by the local organizer due to the difficulty of getting to the location. Of course, if you want to make your way out there and organize a group of your breastfeeding buddies, you have that right 🙂

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.
