Supportive but controversial

This is a great resource for breastfeeding parents! 4 starts since they support co-sleeping and a few other methods that are not supported by AAP

Slider short coming ,

It seems alright

The show is not right for me. There are too many illogical feelings being agreed with no matter what. It’s good that they are being positive in their conversing, and supportive of breastfeeding. So 4 stars. I’ll bet it is a good show for somebody.
