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.

I love your show

Thank you for this show! It helped me tremendously when I was a new mom, breastfeeding, being away from my mom and family, with questions about breastfeeding. Thankful I was in a breastfeeding group with a lactation consultant when my son was about a month old.

Your episode of the benefits of Hand Expression helped me tremendously because I had the rechargeable breast pump and I was only getting .5 oz. I was anxious about going back to work and that anxiety made me not pump as much. My pump also did not allow me to double pump. I found that using a medela hand pump/Haakaa and self-expression was the key to getting 13 oz in an hour.

I’m proud to say my son is 2.5 weeks from being 2 and we are still going strong breastfeeding.

Thank you for all your different topics.
