#22 What Influences How We Feed Our Babies with Professor Amy Brown, PhD

Join us as we talk with Dr. Amy Brown, professor and prolific author, about what influences how we feed our babies, breast, formula and solid foods! 

Amy Brown, PhD is a professor at Swansea University in Wales, where she oversees the master of science program in Child Public Health.  She started her studies in psychology and the arrival of her first baby sparked her interest in the barriers that women face when it comes to breastfeeding.  She went on to have two more children and got a PhD, too!  She has spent the last 12 years lookin at how psychology, culture and society can put up barriers to breastfeeding, but her work focuses on how we can improve breastfeeding rates by providing better support to families.
