I really wish I could know reliably when they would have AP and BF friendly shows on ... every once and awhile I hear of one that's great (awhile ago apparently there was one with a mom of twins who was cd'ing and bfing too
). But by and large, just uninformed awful stuff.
I actually happened to switch over to that today and watched 'til the dad headed down for the bottle.
: I think it would be fun for Ina to watch if it weren't for the bf misinformation which is parroted all the time; but I don't want that "information" in her head. She already thinks we should buy all sorts of things she's seen in TV ads (drugs and more!).
I have been meaning to write them a letter for a long time. On Flip That House, they always have little blurbs pop up about how to safely do X project, or what to do to figure a cost projection or whatever .... if they can provide FACTS on that show, they ought to be able to use a pop-up on their baby shows which says, "Babies should be nursed on demand and not placed on schedules, according to the AAP." or "In the first few weeks, while mothers' supplies are being established, baby may nurse for long periods of time and frequently to establish the supply. Mothers should allow their babies to nurse when this happens, and simply watch for adequate wet and dirty diapers and signs of dehydration."
I'd lay $$ that the babe was just in the final stages of trying to work the milk in -- and mom and dad give formula instead!
