Does early weaning REALLY help babies sleep better?
We all saw the headlines... but was it really as good as it sounds? Amy and Jen take a dive down into the research paper that was causing such a stir in the press and suggesting that early weaning could be a lifesaver for tired parents.
We will talk about the methodology, the results as well as the wider context of early weaning and the other factors to consider from an individual as well as a public health perspective.
Thanks so much for listening and we love your feedback - do send us a message and let us know what you think to firstname.lastname@example.org
