We have digital cable and there is this "on demand" show for kids called "Backyard Safari". It is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and is generally a really good show about the science of different things.<br><br>
So I was watching the show on babies with my girls, and they only showed human babies with bottles! Four or five different times! They did not show any humans breastfeeding, although they did show other mammals. I guess it is good that they at least show some nursing, but I think the message it sends is that humans aren't mammals and nursing is only for other animals.<br><br>
I felt I had to deprogram my kids after that. It made me really mad!
