Mister Rogers Talks About How Moms Feed Their Babies

Tagged Under : , , , , ,

This video to me is really sweet. Makes me miss Mister Rogers. But I also point this out because I think it’s very important that breastfeeding be normalized and shown in society, not hidden away. We have plenty of science now to show that breast really is best for babies, but our breastfeeding rates are still lower than they could/should be. A lot of the reasons women stop are reasons that are completely preventable. I think it would go a long way if we could normalize it and make it acceptable. That’s why clips like this on Mister Rogers are so great.
