Ep. 203 – Is Breast Best? Interview with Victoria Facelli, IBCLC, Author of Feed the Baby

Breast is best. We’ve all heard it, now let’s talk about it. Today the Milk Minute is honored to have Victoria Facelli, author of “Feed the Baby: an inclusive guide to nursing, bottle feeding, and everything in between” on the show to discuss her incredible book. This is the kind of book that Heather and Maureen have dreamed of writing and is the perfect step-by-step guide to feeding your baby, complete with illustrations and videos.

Victoria Facelli is an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant, but not the kind that hates formula. She wrote this book to cut through a lot of the misinformation that parents are faced with, as a resource to empower parents to feed their babies in whatever way works for them!
