A while back, I asked followers of my Facebook page about the challenges and questions they had about breastfeeding.

The response was overwhelming — so much so that we had to have a second episode to cover everything listeners submitted.

This is Part Two of Your Breastfeeding Questions Answered. For Part One, click here.

You might recall that my guest, Dr. Gabriela Maradiaga Panayotti is a superstar. She’s the medical director of the Duke Children’s Healthy Lifestyle Clinic, a former medical director of the Duke Regional Newborn Nursery, and helps lead the Breastfeeding Task Force for Duke Children’s Primary Care.
