2012 was a HUGE year for the San Diego Breastfeeding Center! We opened our first ‘real’ office, our blog had almost 70,000 views and The Boob Group (our podcast) had over 25,000 episode downloads! For a small little San Diego breastfeeding business, that is pretty darn amazing! This just proves that there are lots of mamas out there looking for judgment-free breastfeeding advice and information…just the motivation I need to keep on writing and podcasting!
