Paulo's Moms ,

Neerding out big-time on this awesome program!

Nerding out so hard on this program! I really enjoyed getting to know the research of the three cohosts and love the section in which they talk about breast-feeding technologies and debunk their “necessity”! I hope in the future that we get to hear more about breastfeeding and chestfeeding research outside the US.

About wrestlers drinking breastmilk: I recently read an article about Mongolia and how people think that the best Mongolian wrestlers are those who breast-fed and past six years of age! Thought that was an interesting connection!

Fascinating info for breastfeeders

One of the things that has surprised me about being a nursing mother is the amount of misinformation or just no information on many things surrounding it. As an RN I am so interested in the emerging science. This is such a great way to learn more. I hope there will be more episodes! Even once my nursing days are over, I will still find it fascinating and want to know more.

Yes yes yes!

I love this podcast and I love the work these wonderful women are doing. This is so inspiring to me as an aspiring anthropologist and lactation geek. It feels like it was made for me! I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future of this podcast!
