Truth time: Cher Horowitz is my total breastfeeding spirit animal. It might seem like somewhat of a stretch, especially for our '90s loving, nostalgic minds, but Clueless completely captures what it's like to breastfeed. The confusion; the questionable yet important fashion choices; thinking you know what you're doing but realizing you totally don't; having intense, conflicting feelings for Paul Rudd? I mean, if that's not breastfeeding, I don't know what is.
Okay, perhaps I'm slightly nostalgic for this '90s classic and inclined to give it a bit more credit than necessary in this one particular area that has dominated my mom-life for two years, but seriously, there is a connection there. I can't say I agree with all of Alicia Silverstone's stances on parenthood, but I can definitely endorse her performance as Cher. The full spectrum of emotions that we experience during the 100 minutes of entertainment bliss that is this classic, cinematic masterpiece, rivals what I encountered during those late night feedings and in the waiting room of my lactation consultant's office and in my office's break room, pumping multiple times a day.
