Should "Sesame Street" show breastfeeding?

You may be in favor of breastfeeding, but should it be shown and emphasized on the popular children's program "Sesame Street"?

That's the debate firing up across the country.

Breastfeeding advocates say "Sesame Street" shows bottle-feeding these days, but excludes breast-feeding, at a time when the U.S. Surgeon General has called for more support for breast-feeding mothers.

They also point out that "Sesame Street" didn't used to be this way.

A generation ago, "Sesame Street" used tasteful shots of nursing mothers who explained how they fed their baby.
