Dr. Lori Feldman-Winter, associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, division head of adolescent medicine at Cooper University Hospital in Camden, N.J., and an Executive Committee member of the American Academy of Pediatrics section on breastfeeding, shares her expertise with host Dr. Jennifer Shu.
