Looking for The Lactivist? She's retired. But you CAN still find Jen blogging. These days, she's runs A Flexible Life. Join her for life, recipes, projects and the occasional rant.
Monday, May 21, 2007Just sat down to catch up on some and to try and get a few blog posts ready and was surprised to find the breastfeeding episode of Two and a Half Men on CBS.
If you haven't seen the episode (this was a rerun), Alan dates Berta's daughter Naomi who has a young baby. In one of the scenes, they're out in a restaurant having lunch and Naomi pulls her shirt down from the top, unhooks her nursing bra and nurses her baby throughout the conversation.
It's done very matter of factly with no attempt to hide what's being done and with no negative reactions from anyone around them. In fact, there's even some playful banter about their romantic life and the fact that she's breastfeeding. (Some comment about him not knowing that nursing bras had flaps...)
Overall, a fantastic representation of breastfeeding on prime time television. (Angela over at Breastfeeding 1-2-3 has screenshots.)
Three cheers for Two and a Half Men! They got this one right.
