Breastfeeding on The Simpsons!


You can watch the episode here: http://wtso.net/movie/534-2407_The_D...tood_Cool.html. I love how Marge said she breastfed Lisa for nine months and Lisa is super smart Shows they did their research!

I saw that episode last night! I kind of raised an eyebrow at the whole "if you won't breastfeed your daughter, then we will" making breastfeeders out to be crazy extremists. But, I did like that at the end with the Lisa comment.

I like Family Guy better. "Hey Brian, you know that midnight feeding where Lois barely opens her eyes??? ... I'll let you take that one." (the baby trying to convince Brian to do something for him)

Marge and homer also carry Maggie quite often in slings and SSC type backpacks. Very AP, really!

Yes Marge breastfeeds... except on that Halloween episode where Bart was born with a twin. The evil twin Hugo is born, leaves like 10 nasty puncture marks on Bart, and Marge says, "I think I'll bottle feed THAT one"

I watched it yesterday and wasnt pleased ! it made breastfeeding mums look mental! saying they would breastfeed her child and then Marge saying they looked down on her. And formula hate. Disappointed.

But there ARE moms out there like that, I assume Matt Groening had experience with one. I have had moms talk down to me for supplementing with formula. And tell me that I don't deserve to be a mother if my baby is getting that "poison". Even though I BF my LO as much as possible, but I don't produce enough for him. I would love to only BF. He just needs to meet some down to earth and less extreme moms.

This is true. There are extremists when it comes to breastfeeding.

Also, let's face it. It's The Simpsons! Not a medical documentary
