The Ultimate Breastfeeding TV Show List

During my pregnancy I have been given a TON of great advice, but one thing that keeps coming up is that I need to have a list of shows to watch while breastfeeding. To be honest, I was never a “show” person until I met my husband. One of his favorite things for us to do together is to get invested in tv shows and now it’s one of our “things.” Being specifically told to compile a list of shows has been a fun pregnancy to-do for us. We have even watched a few of them already. Oops!

We’ve received recommendations from friends and family across the board. I cannot speak on the quality of the shows we have not watched, but I figured I would share my list regardless. I will also include a list of shows we have watched and really liked.
