Old friends, new baby: last July we checked in with Amy's friend Aparna Desai Brown, who was expecting her first baby. Today Aparna returns as Amy's guest co-host to share her experiences from her first two months of motherhood. Aparna has a lot of good news and advice for first-time parents. In the second half of the show Amy is joined by breastfeeding advocate Dr. Miriam Labbok. Miriam has worked for UNICEF and now heads the Center for Infant and Young Child Feeding and Care at UNC's school of Public Health. She shares encouraging statistics about breastfeeding, as well as reasons why it is in employers' best interests (as well as employees') to create family-friendly workplaces.
