Shows that normalize breastfeeding

Does anyone else love shows that or love breastfeeding?!?

Last night after the horrible ending to How I Met Your Mother (which also openly talked about breastfeeding) I started watching the first 2 minutes of the new show "Friends with Better Lives" and in the opening scene the mom was using a breast pump. I instantly fell in live with the show.

I love when shows talk about breastfeeding!

I keep hearing about the horrible ending, I have only caught a few episodes BUT PM me and explain it to me?? someone anyone?

That being said there arent many shows that show BFing.  Sesame street did in the 80's.

Yes I will PM you. You don't really see a lot of physical breastfeeding (because that would be difficult when most of the actresses aren't lactating) but you hear about it and I've seen it a lot recently.

The Secret Life of the American Teenage talked about Amy nursing.
Lily on HIMYM was a nursing mom. She pumped at Barney's house because of the big tv.
And recently on last seasons on Greys Anataomy Meredith was nursing her new baby.

I love how it's expected/normal in the few episodes ivd seen of "call the midwife". Not that I would want the other hardships of the era I do long for a society where the mentality is why wouldn't you nurse?

Piper nursed on Charmed. They had an episode where she was harassed by a waiter about nursing her baby at the table and Phoebe stood up for her.
Cheryl nursed her twins on According to Jim.
I loved the conversation between Amy and Adrian on the Secret Life of the American Teenager while Adrian was pregnant. Amy said that it was weird at first but became wonderful.
Nursing was normal but joked about on Friends.

I was bored and watched a sixteen and pregnant marathon. All the ones I saw were breastfeeding.

Addison on private practice used donor milk for her adopted baby.

Chrisley knows best said his oldest daughter breastfed (she was getting a boob job bc of what nursing did to her boobs).

An episode of criminal minds mentioned JJ carrying a breast pump.
