Every mom spends a tremendous amount of time feeding their baby. Whether we had carefully laid plans, many choices at our disposal, or the choice was made for us; bringing new life into the world forces to us walk headlong into our first big task as a mom. In this episode, Emily and Laura discuss their experiences with this issue, shifting the conversation away from judgment and comparison. What would happen if we refused to let our feeding method define our first year with a child, and instead, treasured Christ above all else?
