With all the hype (even on this blog) about that great lessons on Yo Gabba Gabba lately...it was refreshing to see a classic clip from Sesame Street show up on YouTube.

If you haven't seen it...here's a great musical montage of nursing mammals...including a nursing human mom and baby. :)

Thanks to Jessica for pointing it out!

    That was AWESOME!! Thanks for sharing. I remember that Sesame Street music from other montages, but I'm not sure if I remember that specific one.

    I am now officially anti gabba gabba. While one little 3 minute snippet seems pretty innocuous, 25 minutes of this stuff is just dreadful -- truly brain rotting junk that asks NOTHING of the viewer. Sesame Street rules!

    I love this! I think I remember it from my youth (but I could be making it up). It is so sweet.

    I love all the nursing toddlers!

    I love sesame street!! And this montage was just fabulous. So good to see breastfeeding, whether animal or human, portrayed as completely natural and beautiful.

    I can't believe just how much of a prude we've become as a society that I bet we couldn't show the same thing today as we did "many" years ago. What's next, going back to two beds for the married couple???

    We've become so accepting of "everyone" that we no longer want to offend "anyone". Ugh!

    Got to love Sesame Street and PBS!!!

    To be honest society today is about devaluing the family structure. Why else would it be ok to bombard all of us with sex constantly (lots of breasts) yet simple things like feeding our children are not ok? Brace yourselves, it will probably get worse.

    An episode of Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood had a segment on nursing the other day. They showed animals and then human babies nursing, including2 the mothers' entire breasts, and exactly how the baby was being fed. It was presented in a matter-of-fact way and so that children would understand and would know how very natural and normal this is. As if I could love (and miss) Mr. Rogers more...! I do wonder what kinds of letters PBS gets when they air that episode, though. Let's just say that if whoever complained at Applebee's sees it, they would flip out!
