In my next article for the Israeli environmental blog Green Prophet, I want to write about the lack of a breastfeeding culture here in Israel. Women enter motherhood with an unprecedented lack of knowledge about breastfeeding and babies, and they don’t even know what they don’t know. Here women commented that they didn’t know that they could pump to supply breastmilk for their babies and keep up their supply after returning to work.
Mothers, and fathers too: What do you wish you had known about breastfeeding or mothering when you had your first baby? Please share in the comments. As usual all readers, parents or not, are welcome to join the conversation.
