Not able to breast feed

by Mel

I never produced any milk either, my boobs never grew in size and I didn't leak milk. I had a breast pump continuously on my breasts for 3 days and not a drop of milk. I was feeding my little boy with formula from a cup suggested at the hospital so he didn't get used to a bottle teet, but I had to use a bottle which was very upsetting as I was looking forward to that so called special bond with the skin to skin contact. Nethertheless, I bonded still with my little boy and he is a healthy boy. It is a mystery why some women do not produce milk, i do know of a friend who never produced any milk with her first child, but did with her second, so I am hoping that will be the case for me.
