The character of Lexi on the popular daytime television show Days of Our Lives became a new mother in 2003. Our readers sent 3 Minute Activist letters to encourage the producers to have Lexi breastfeed on the show.
Below is the letter that was sent to NBC Viewer Relations
As a fan of Days of Our Lives, and a new mother, I have been following the pregnancy of Lexi very closely. Lexi has always been a favorite character of mine, and I would love to see Lexi breastfeed her baby. Breastfeeding has many benefits to baby and mom. If you are not aware of all the benefits, you can visit http://www.promom.org/101/index.html to view several of them.
Having Lexi breastfeed on your show would do a great deal to promote breastfeeding. Your show is very popular among mothers and mothers to be. Hopefully seeing Lexi breastfeed her baby would encourage other mothers to give their baby the best start possible.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
