It was this morning, on CBS Morning Show. I watched it. They did a good job as far as they went, which was only to state that moms should breastfeed and do so exclusively for 6 months, continue to at least a year with supplemental foods.
They did interview a couple of moms whose employers are supportive and provide a place for pumping. The refrigerator was pointed out. But no acual helpful information for how to ask an employer how to do this, nothing really directed at employers on how to do this.
I didn't notice any "this is best, BUT..." Also, for once the blame for our low breastfeeding rates was squarely placed on unsupportive family and society rather than all the individual moms.
"What will you do once you know?"
