I was surfing mommy-blogs last week when I spotted Around the Island, by an American-Israeli mother of two. (You’ll have to visit to understand the title.) When the blogger, Robin, commented on my blog I recognized her email–we’d had an exchange about formula advertising that very morning. I’ve known Robin since she showed up at a breastfeeding group six years ago with her three-week-old son, Itai. And now she’s studying to become a lactation consultant.
Robin’s kids haven’t gotten to the teenage stage yet. Yet this moving post about her own adolescence may comfort some of you who are struggling.
