I just saw it last night and it was great! There's lots of nursing scenes in it, which I think is great for the average mainstream American to see. They made it seem totally normal and just a part of every day life. There's even a tandem nursing scene and a scene where the African baby is nursing while standing up-- mom stops walking and just bends forward so she can nurse for a second! We never see the American baby nurse though-- she gets fed with a bottle at one point. They don't seem like the average mainstream American family though-- I'm pretty sure they were cosleeping, dad wore baby in an Ergo, and baby didn't have a ton of toys and the ones she did have were mostly wooden (and they were in San Fran). Lots of babywearing in the movie as well! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Yay! I can't wait to see it! My mom actually wants to see it with me, and she's very mainstream. I wonder what her reaction will be, heh heh.

Yes! Loved it! On the website there are interviews with the parents, and on the facebook page they talk about the breastfeeding. Hattie, the American baby, was fed pumped breastmilk via bottle. Poni, the baby from Namibia, was actually being nursed by her older sister! It was such a beautiful movie. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
