Totte B ,

Great source of info!

This podcast is well rounded and very easy to listen to. It is a source of information that I feel good suggesting to my clients. As a lactation consultant (IBCLC), I especially love the episode on baby massage and safe formula prep. Such needed information!

Aminta147 ,

Well balanced, informative, and fun!

On issues of parenting, there can be a lot of pressure and even self imposed shame about the methods and expectations we set for raising a newborn. LET IT GO! The Baby Pro Podcast is a safe haven for meaningful discussion with experienced and well-informed practitioners covering a wide range of topics to support new parents on their baby journey. Details are supported by research, and presented with warmth and candor. ❤️

Sonya Shaw ,
