It's a clip from Sesame Street showing breastfeeding....and it's from 1977 - so do you think we are getting weirder about public nursing? I can't imagine Sesame Street airing this today....

I think some people are getting better, and some are getting worse.



..... along with many other things. :lol:

Before I ever thought of getting pregnant, I always thought it was almost.... awkward, when mothers would BF in public. Now that I am pregnant and wanting to breastfeed, I don't have a problem with it at all.

I cant see that being aired. Did they actually air it in the 70s? Or is it a deleted clip?

This-exactly what I was going to ask.



I think some of us are getting better, some of us are getting worse. Like everything else in this world, it seems that people are moving to one side of the fence or the other.

That's sweet and it explains bfing well to young children. I hope it was actually aired. If it was, I'm surprised I haven't heard about this by now.

Considering it's illegal where I live and my state is actually spending my tax dollars to fight national laws protecting nursing mothers because they consider it a sex crime. Worse.

Seriously????



Is it illegal to BF in public, or is it illegal overall? What kind of shit do they think they're pulling?

Definitely worse. Breastfeeding is a natural, wonder thing but a lot of people see it in a very negitive way. :/
