When Sesame Street Was Cool. . .

I'm obviously on a roll posting about breastfeeding lately.  I'm sure I'll post about something different soon, but this one is also about breastfeeding in public.  I came across these clips from Sesame Street.

I think it's wonderful that this was shown on Sesame Street.  Too bad it isn't always seen as normal and natural now.  In fact, a hospital recently came under fire for having a poster of a toddler pretending to breastfeed her doll.  Such a thing is absolutely normal - a child will mimic what the mother does, be that pretending to bottle feed a toy or pretending to breastfeed a toy.  K pretends to breastfeed his toys and puts bumGenius on them because that's what he sees at home.  We also watch the old school Sesame Street videos. ;-)
