Breastfeeding, breastfeeding, breastfeeding

once again

once again

After seeing a sudden spike in visitors to my blog, I discovered that if you do a google-images search for breastfeeding, my site is the first one to come up. I guess any traffic is good traffic, and if the whole world knows about my low milk supply, so be it.
Which leads me to a question, all you readers who are not members of my family…..how did you find my blog?

I think I was looking for some local blogs about Jewish family activities, and found Here in HP, and then I found Ima on the Bima (hi Pyhllis! I have been meaning to leave you a comment too), and then I found you.

Phyllis – I found you from Reflections of a Rabbi’s Wife, which I found from Finding Blanche, which I found from my brother (she is a high school friend of his.)

Hi there, I haven’t commented before, but I’ve been enjoying your blog. I found it recently while looking for resources on raising a creative Jewish family, especially for those of us who live in not-very-Jewish towns.

I actually found your blog link on the PJ Library’s newsletter. I too am interested in raising a daughter in a not-so-Jewish town so I love your blog.

This is a fun thread!
If it were *my* breast, maybe I would have second thoughts about it. But no, I’m assuming everyone searching for breastfeeding pics has pure intentions, and perhaps a few of them will even enjoy my blog.
Plus, my fleeting moment of fame seems to have vanished. I’m no longer even on the first page of matches for that search.

Hi…not sure if you’ll see this late comment or not, but I found your blog when I googled “Jewish families + spanking” That led to a site which led to yours.
I am a Christian who does NOT spank her child. Since the Christians I know who DO spank their children use Proverbs and Hebrews (book in the Christian Bible) as their justification, I did a big word study on the words used. Then I decided to see what “real” Jewish moms and dads did in regards to spanking. That led to your blog.
During my first job after college, I worked in an office where I was the only person who wasn’t Jewish. I enjoyed it.
Are you surprised that I am one of your readers? Your blog is great! I can’t wait to check out some of the books you recommend!

Thanks!
I think it’s quite possible to use passages from the Bible to support or condemn almost anything. Personally, I’m against corporal punishment and I don’t think I know any other parents who spank their kids either, Jewish or non-Jewish.

I was googling breastfeeding rates in Jewish communities and your blog came up on the first page…not sure why I was googling this…it just seems to be that more Jews choose to bf than goyim and I was curious if statistics bear this out…

I found you because I was looking for a jewish information site regarding breastfeeding. ALSO I really would like to find the documentary that was made something like 5 years ago? About Orthodox women who have many babies and spend a dozen years breastfeeding? Thanks

Thanks I figured it out, it is called BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY, sadly the purchase price is nearly $300. Will probably hope for a future screening. Thanks

Teaching the Four Questions to young children
One of the greatest privileges of being a kindergarten teacher in a Jewish day school is having the opportunity to teach children to recite the four questions. Unlike almost anything else I teach them about Jewish ritual, this is "real work." The candles will get blessed, kiddush will be recited, an

Guess what's Kosher for Passover (this will change your life.)
I'm not exaggerating. The bane of my Passover existence has been pareve baking. I cook a lot more meat during the holiday than I do the rest of the year, which means a lot more pareve desserts. Which has, up until now, usually meant margarine made from disgusting ingredients such as cottonseed oi

Why I love the New American Haggadah (and it's not just because I got to have a martini with Nathan Englander.)
I'm not a haggadah junkie. I know many Jews whose shelves are overflowing with numerous versions of the Haggadah - from the traditional Maxwell House to the not-so-traditional Santa Cruz - and whose seders are an amalgam of commentaries, poems, and (alas) responsive readings, from these dog-eared, p

Best Hamentashen Ever, even better. And, a Purim opera.
This time of year, I'm always excited when I look at my google analytics and see that people have landed at my blog by searching for "hamentashen recipe". I love the idea of people all over the world making my great-grandmother's fabulous hamentashen, the same ones my mom made with me and that I mak
