What’s In/ What’s Out, also WIWO, is a special series of blogs that tackles and explores topics of particular interest to pregnant and lactating moms. Contributed by people who are either known experts or respected figures in their field of practice, these blogs aim to provide site visitors with useful information on the subject of breastfeeding and topics pertaining to mothers’ and babies’ health and wellness.

With WIWO, we hope to make only good and sound recommendations.
