I think it just depends on how much tissue they removed and it's kind of a wait and see how much you are able to feed but I have heard of women nursing after reduction! Just breastfeed, maybe even pump after each feed initially to try and increase your supply and just keep an eye on how many diapers baby is going through in a day. And I agree, a lactation consultant is a must because breastfeeding is challenging enough in itself sometimes so it's nice to have someone you can call or make an appt with to help you out!
Yes, you can breastfeed!! A breast reduction is the removal of extra fat stored in the breast, some woman who have had a reduction experience low milk supply. But that's not the case for every situation and there are most certainly several remedies, herbs and medications to help with those such things if they were in fact to occur. There are very few reasons a mother "can't" breastfeed, most situations that may make breastfeeding difficult are if the baby is born with defects or the mother has medical conditions etc, even then...pumping is an option. But having breast reduction alone shouldn't be any reason why you couldn't breastfeed. Look into consulting with a board certified lactation specialist, they will most definitely be able to assist you with a successful breastfeeding experience!!!
