I can't believe I got to post this first. I was sure someone would have beaten me to it!<br><br>
Janice, Tony's sister, has a 15 month old that she complained is always wanting the breast. They even showed her nursing with her tattooed breast.<br>
Now, I think Janice is a loser but she gets points for this, as do the show's producers!!<br><br>

I posted it as soon as I could in the Sopranos thread. Does that count? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
I agree, I was really psyched to see that! And really happy that it was a 15-month-old. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> That baby was adorable too! ITA that Janice is <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut"> though!<br><br>
Once again, thank you David Chase (the producer)!! He's awesome--he always comes through with good stuff like that.

though....anything Janice does is almost meant to be looked at as bad or weird, you know? the only other bf'ing mention I've seen on that show was Adrianna making fun of Carmella's life and saying something about "bf'ing a couple of brats"<br>
I almost wish Janice would have ff because everyone wants to be the opposite of her lol

That was so amazing! If there's any character who is least likely to breastfeed I'd say it's Janice...<br><br>
Anyone think that baby looked a little small to be 15 months? Sheesh! I thought she was 8, maybe 9 months tops.

There's no such thing as bad publicity. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Actually, she's pretty crunchy. Tony has made fun of her for it in the past. I agree it's too bad that's lumped in with all her mental problems though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

That's a good point. I was just thinking about how selfish she normally is... breastfeeding takes a lot of committment!

I have to respectfully disagree. Breastfeeding is the easy way. So nice to be able to just remove clothing, instead of rising from the couch to find food for the child.<br><br>
Without the bad influences we get from the formula industry, we would see it as easy. Without a drugged up mom and baby, the first feed is a breeze.<br><br>
I promote nursing as the easy way. Let's be honest. Not breast is best, breast is normal, and free, and easy. Just stay away from the medicos.<br><br>
Janice takes the easy way out. I plan to use her as an example.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Putting it another way, I was going to say, it gives her an excuse to sit around all day on the couch! LOL!

I saw that quote from Adriana. It's actually on the character profiles page on the Sopranos site.<br><br>
"Oh, yeah. Be one of those wives like Carmela Soprano...breast feed a bunch of rugrats, then spend the rest of your life at the gym, just you and your stretch marks."<br><br>
Anyway, I still think it's positive because it's mentioned like it is the default, <i>normal</i> thing. As in, that's what you do when you have kids.<br><br>
Unfortunately, she is kind of negative about motherhood in general, but that's another story...

On the show after that, Big Love, the mom apparently is breastfeeding her baby, too. WTG HBO!

I saw this and thought it was great. I actually think of it as Janice "growing up" a little. She's in a solid relationship now and is doing what's best for the baby...<br><br>
I didn't notice the Mom on Big Love breastfeeding. But I wanted to cry for the brunette when she was taking care of all four kids... changing the one's diaper (on the table, though, yuck!) while another runs around screaming and a third is eating mayo from a jar. So then when the fourth starts peeing on the floor I just thought - ohmigosh, I know how you feel! Of course the phone rings and she answers all chipper - "hello?" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Should be an interesting show.

I didn't see this episode but my friend did and she said that in the following scene, someone was using a model train and a Nestle car went by. Did anyone else catch that???

Others have mentioned this. I am willing to believe that it's a coincidence.<br><br>
Also, there are many people out there who don't connect Nestle with formula, so I don't know how effective the alleged spot would be in promoting formula anyway.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">
