i saw Lindsay Wagner on a commercial recently and it made me think of her bionic woman days. I was such a huge fan of her's in the 70's when i was in elementary. I loved her farmhouse.
Anyways, when i see her now i remember vaguely the controversy of her breastfeeding her baby on the set. I remember thinking how cool that she brought her baby with her to work, and then i remember thinking it was wrong that her bosses fussed over her nursing on the set. I was too young to really understand, but apparently old enough that it made some kind of impression. I think in the end she was able to breastfeed on the set, i'm not sure.
So i googled to find out more about this. Couldn't find what i was looking for. But i did see reference to a conversation back in 2005 that Lindsay shocked Oprah by stating she breastfed her son til he was 7 (at least i know how to pick my heroine's!). And there was another comment about Vanessa Williams shocking the View by telling them she breastfed her son til he was 2. So sad that these woman were put down for being such great mama's!
I wish i saw these shows, these celebrity mom's need to be applauded not booed.
If any body remembers this media stir in the late 70's please post. her bionic lactivism made quite an impact on me!
