#Relatable

I love how honest, and relatable this podcast is. Their humor and open approach to their topics leaves me not only more knowledgeable but also in stitches from laughing so hard.

Love you guys!

Making me feel like a normal mama to my 3 year old son!

Woof.

It’s like listening to the mean girls from high school talk about how they know everything. Feel physically sick after listening to the baby led weaning episode which really does nothing to inform about baby led weaning. Do yourself a favor and find anyone else to ask questions about parenting.
