I have an online friend which I met when I went to a knitting workshop.
She's American so she understands the importance of breast feeding; she is also a mother of a young baby…just 6 wks. Older then my DD.

I tend to gripe about breast feeding, because in Israel you really get the wrong kind of attitude. I'm not saying it's a national thing but you don't meet that many nursing mothers and when you do, they only nurse for the bare minimum of 6 months if that long.
The men here seem to understand better the importance of it then the woman.
I'll have you know that in order to express I need to take myself of to a conference room that has a glass window wall, though it's a sort of darkened glass. I need to sit in a chair with my back to the wall so that no one sees…but I DON'T CARE. 100% breastfeeding is something I will not compromise on. If I didn't have a room in the office that had a door with a lock I would simply use my nursing bib to cover myself up.
This is the one thing I can do for my baby whole heartedly, it's good for me and it's good for her…but before I digress, as I already have…check out what my friend wrote about:

Really? I'd think you'd meet more breastfeeding mothers in Israel, since my understanding is that the Talmud assumes you'll nurse for two years.

Did you know that there are many La Laech League Groups in Israel, most of them bilingual (English/Ivrit) ?
To find on near you, go to:

Oh...I'm aware of La Leche as I was really lucky that my first nurse for my baby when I became a mother 6 years ago was a member, I would have been able to nurse succesfully without her.

the problem is, none in my area...though one day I hope to become a member my self and even a lactation cousler...I just can't do it right now.
