5 Times When TV Normalised Breastfeeding

When it comes to breastfeeding and TV, the two don’t really seem to go together. And when they do, it’s usually portraying either disgust, or sexualisation. So I thought I’d compile a list of the times where TV actually normalised breastfeeding.

Unfortunately, this was harder than I’d expected, we definitely need to see more breastfeeding on TV!



The One Where Rachel Has a Baby:

I think we all know about this iconic one where Rachel breastfeeds Emma in hospital. Albeit making Joey very embarrassed, but we can’t expect anything less from our little Joey can we?!


“Friends”, again!

The One with the Breast Milk:

In this one Carol not only breastfeeds Ben, but Ross also tries Carol’s breast milk, although he wasn’t too impressed…

“Sex and the City”

Season 5 Premiere

In this episode, Miranda breastfeeds in front of Carrie and openly discusses how much bigger her breasts have gotten since giving birth. Amen to Miranda for talking about that 3 cup size increase we all know only too well!!

“The Office”

The Delivery: Part 2

In this episode, after Pam has her baby she struggles with getting the baby to latch. It was great of the episode to touch on the fact that breastfeeding isn’t always as easy as it looks. By the time Pam leaves the hospital with her baby, she is successfully breastfeeding. Hooray for Pam!!



Mother’s Day

In this episode of Rugrats, not only does Betty breastfeed the twins, she tandem feeds them – go Betty! Cartoon queen of tandem!
