One stop shopping for breastfeeding
I love love love their podcast it’s upbeat, informative but so real! I love how they keep it honest but insightful throughout any motherhood journey. I enjoy the non-sugarcoated information about parenthood, breastfeeding and empowering moms to make their own decisions about child development and more.
I’m a first time mama, and my baby was born in August. We didn’t have any of the help we thought we would have because of the pandemic, and this turned out to be a blessing. I got to figure out what motherhood was going to be for me on my own. I feel remarkably fortunate for the hospital my daughter was born in after listening to your podcast because they support breastfeeding exclusivity. Not a single person even mentioned formula during our stay, and every nurse was willing to help me when the lactation consultant was unavailable. My breastfeeding relationship was really well supported since even before she was born and the nurse asked “you do want her on your chest to do skin-to-skin right away, right?”
Your podcast has been a real blessing not just in terms of my breastfeeding relationship but in me figuring out who I wanted to be as a mother. You both have given me the confidence and information to trust my body and trust my baby—I am doing it the right way because it’s my way.
New motherhood is such a vulnerable time, and I feel like so much of what we hear that we’re supposed to do runs counter to instinct, and because of your podcast, I’ve been able to feel confident in my choices and just do what really feels right for me and my daughter. I’m a baby mattress daily, my daughter is a pro comfort nurser, and nursing her to sleep is one of the best parts of my day. Thank you for being so honest and blunt and for everything you’re doing on your podcast. You’ve both helped me find my own way into motherhood and feel wildly supported in the route and role I’ve chosen to take.
Wanted to love it..
I’m so glad there is more information about breastfeeding available to moms now days. That being said, after a few episodes, I felt negative and anxious from the frequent ranting. Perhaps i am too pregnant and sensitive right now! But, I wish there was more uplifting information and tips rather than going on about how society doesn’t support BF, bad advice from doctors etc.
