Over 4,000 People Want to Bring Breastfeeding Back to ‘Sesame Street’

Is “Sesame Street” showing enough breastfeeding? No, apparently. (???)

There’s an online petition going around that’s attempting to, quote, “bring breastfeeding back to ‘Sesame Street’.”

According to the petition, “Sesame Street” used to “tastefully” depict breastfeeding back in the ’70s and ’80s, but recently, they’ve only been showing “bottle feeding.”

The petition adds, “We are not asking ‘Sesame Street’ to remove bottle feeding. We are asking that both ways of feeding babies be shown as normal.

“If we normalize breastfeeding in our community…especially with our children…we can help raise a generation of breastfeeders which will support our economy, make for healthier children, and lessen the risk of breast cancer for many nursing mamas!”

They’re trying to get 5,000 signatures. As of late last night, they had over 4,000.

You can find the petition at ThePetitionSite.com.

Here’s a video from the ’70s, of a baby being breastfed on “Sesame Street”.

Here’s one from the ’80s, where a baby is being nursed, but they explain the option of bottle feeding.

And here’s a video from the ’90s, where the show’s “You’re My Baby” song is edited to only include bottle feeding. Here’s a clip of the original from the ’80s.
