Lani of the Boobie Time blog started this awesome campaign. Sesame Street used to show videos that including breastfeeding, and they replaced them all in the '90s with solely bottle-feeding images. Lani's hoping to restore the balance.

 

Here's the link to the petition:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/2/bring-breastfeeding-back-to-sesame-street/

 

Here's her blogpost with the cool, old videos:

(Am I allowed to link to a blogpost here? I forget what the rules are.)

 

She's also hoping a breastfeeding celebrity might agree to appear on the show — wouldn't that be perfect? Does anyone know if Beyonce's nursing Blue?

 

Feel free to share the petition around — it's already getting a lot of air time on various sites and on FB and is up to over 27,000 signatures. I hope Sesame Street listens!

Hey ladies! We need an influx of signatures on this petition! We've just done an official press release for this to get it to go viral again. http://bringbreastfeedingback.com/2012/01/20/press-release-breastfeeding-on-sesame-street-ruffles-big-birds-feathers/

Thanks for posting to the blog with all the breastfeeding episodes. I especially loved the close-up of nursing in the "you're my baby" song.

is there an email address or something of the like for sesame street?

i'd be more than willing to send a letter, would love to see more breast than bottle on ss!

am not sure how much weight is given to online petitions as they are harder to verify.

Those videos were so beautiful! I wish they'd show them again.
