One of my favorite parts of breastfeeding — especially during the newborn days — is watching TV. When I was feeding my baby I was able to catch up on shows I had missed, enjoy old favorites, and find new distractions from the monotony of motherhood. I did learn, however, that during all those late-night feedings, early morning power pumping sessions, and sleepy afternoon snuggles there are some shows you absolutely don't want to watch when you're breastfeeding. You might even say they are dangerous.
For instance, I am not saying that you shouldn't watch scary shows like The Walking Dead or disturbing shows like The Handmaid's Tale when breastfeeding your baby, but I am saying that you should be prepared to get so freaked out that you wake up your baby. As a breastfeeding mom, I found that some shows, like Jane the Virgin, and The Letdown, are pretty damn accurate when they show the challenges of being a nursing mom... to the point that they're arguably too accurate. Other shows, like Grey's Anatomy, not only show breastfeeding and pumping moms on the job, but they are so addictive that you won't be able to stop watching. And let's just say that watching cooking shows while breastfeeding is a straight-up bad idea. That is, of course, unless someone is available to bring you food.
As a nursing mom you might find yourself with time on your hands and longing for a new show to devour. That's great and all, but trust me when I say that you might find the following shows too "dangerous" to handle:
