Wow sounds like you gave it a good go. I was wondering about the amount of milk I will have because they said I might have some but not enough to exclusively breast feed. Thanks for your response mamainoz:)
I had preeclamplsia so really wasn't in great health and my baby was prem. I had low thyroid, low vitamin d, anemic, and breast reduction working against me as well as a prem baby with his health needs. I had a great midwife who helped me breastfeed every couple of hours and pump in between feeds in the first 3 days to help build up supply and help with attachment but as his needs changed my supply didn't increase and what he did get wasn't very good quality. After a month he was well below his birth weight and still had jaundice. After a week on formula he was like a different baby, so much happier and starting to thrive.
Thanks for your response. When you say you had trouble do you mean in producing enough milk?
Yes, I had one about 5yrs ago. I was told if the ducts were intact it would be fine but in all honesty I had a lot of difficulty. I would look into a nipple shield before bub is born and maybe consider pumping. I had to stop breastfeeding after only 4wks because of many reasons but if you wanted to, and all is going well, once you overcome the latching issue it should be fine.
