Hello Everyone! This is Jen G. I would like to let you know that I will soon be leaving the Human Lactation Center to work at the California Department of Public Health. It has been a pleasure working with and learning from both Jane and Jen B., and I have enjoyed meeting so many of you, our readers, at Baby Behavior trainings across the country. It has been an exciting ride and I look forward to continuing my work with Baby Behavior in California. However, I will miss getting to share research and my personal experiences with you through this blog! Best wishes to the mommies (and daddies) out there trying to better understand their babies and to those that provide Baby Behavior education to parents!

Take care,
Jen G.
