49: Is Breast Really Best?
Jan 27, 2021
Dr. Mona Amin

It is an honor to welcome Emily Oster who is an economist, mother, and author of the New York Times Bestselling book, Cribsheet, to the podcast today.

Emily's book Cribsheet: A Data-Driven Guide to Better, More Relaxed Parenting, from Birth to Preschool breaks down so many topics and choices parents struggle with in parenthood.

From deciding to circumcise, sleep train, to introduce screen time, she breaks it all down with the evidence.

I welcome her on this episode to talk about the limitations of breast feeding research.

Breast milk is beneficial, but is it really FAR superior to formula feeding?

We break down the research and discuss if breast is REALLY best.
