Yes, I'm going to talk about breastfeeding, just briefly. Last night's episode of The Office centered around the birth of Pam and Jim's baby, and it included some really great scenes about the struggles that breastfeeding moms face. From the baby's latch problems to the nurse pushing bottle feeding I had a lot of "been there, done that" moments during that episode. It was great to see a show that finally portrayed breastfeeding as a learning process, a struggle, and something that doesn't always happen as naturally as we've been led to believe it should be. I hope the show continues to follow Pam's struggles both as a new mom and a breastfeeding mom.
