For once, a FABULOUS BFing article in the news, albeit in our local Baltimore Jewish Times, but it's a GREAT read if you have time. It was the cover story, so it's kinda long...but well worth it! It encourages women to BF and interviews some women within different denominations of Judaism about their decision to bf, it's really wonderful.

Take a peek if you are interested, just a warning, there are a lot of religious themes/texts mentioned.

Thank you very much for posting that! I bookmarked it... I hope it is one of those that stays available and not one that disappears from the web after a few months. I also e-mailed the link to some friends of mine.

Thank you so much for sharing that!

Wow - what a great article! And I find that a lot of the religious themes are applicable to many Christian faiths that are based on the Old Testament as well. What a thorough and thoughtful portrayal of bf - thanks for sharing this one.

Hi Jaysie,

I just posted this on Monday. LOL We must be neighbors!!! Isn't it a great article? I got so choked up reading it and the cover photo is beautiful.

Sen me an email and let me know where you're located. We're in N.W. Baltimore County.

I used to live in Baltimore, and I was personal friends with 2 of the women interviewed! When did Rena Levin have her 5th baby? She only had 4 when I knew her!

BTW, the Judy Yankelove quoted in the article was one of the LLL leaders in the group I used to belong to. Now do you understand why I've been so dissapointed with the LLL groups anywhere else?

I couldn't access the article, bummer, it must have expired. I live in Reisterstown, MD! Glad to see some neighbors! Judy is great, she helped me while I was pregnant. Doesn't she have a ton of children? Colleen
