The decision to breastfeed a child is a personal one, but it can be costly as well. Our guest explains that despite what some might think, breastfeeding is far from cheap. We also talk to a poet about her art and her work with people who have Alzheimer’s Disease, and we talk to the executive director of the group behind the protest Thursday at the capitol building called “A Day Without Latinos and Immigrants.”
