We continue on with this amazing interview with Maureen Minchin who is giving us a lot of information that you really won’t find in too many other places. She is really helping us understanding about infant formula and its relationship with long term health. She is doing a great job of educating us without being overly concerned about upsetting anyone. Maureen is very angry at what she was not told as a young mother and feeding her baby & she is on a mission, even if it upsets the apple cart, to educate parents about infant feeding. She says that if educators had to worry about making parents feel guilty about many of the subjects, we would be missing out on very important information and that would be negligent.
Take a listen.
