Mom Urges TV Program Sesame Street to Show Breastfeeding WomenOne mother is rallying the support of thousands in the U.S. to bring back breastfeeding on television.
In recent months, we have heard a number of stories about moms who were humiliated for doing something that, a few decades ago, was a more widely-accepted practice.

To show their support and help empower these moms, certain restaurants have even announced themselves to be a breastfeeding-friendly place, where moms don’t have to be afraid of being sent away or chastised for feeding their babies.
