It seems there is a podcast for absolutely everything these days! Parenting podcasts are huge and a great resource for busy mamas and papas who can listen on the go – whilst cooking in the kitchen or in the car doing the school run! But what about if you are curious or passionate about breastfeeding and want to find out more?
Whilst some parenting podcasts touch on breastfeeding from time to time, there haven’t been that many breastfeeding focused podcasts to tune into. The few podcasts that are out there (and which we list below!) are great sources of breastfeeding information and really go in-depth on key breastfeeding topics. They can be fantastic ways to soak up information when you just don’t have the time to read.
At boobingit we just love podcasts which is why we’ve been busy working on our own podcast! We think we can offer something different and fun to the mix. In fact, we’ve already hit the record button and have a number of inspiring mama stories to bring you.
We thought it would be fun to list some of the podcasts we listen to and which you may want to check out for yourself.
