not the only one with this problem

by Kayla

Let me just say how grateful and happy I am to read that I'm not the only one!

During my first pregnancy, my breasts didn't swell or even change cupsize. Nothing was going on in the boob department.

Even after delivery I tried to pump, to get him to nurse, I even made the demand high and nothing.

I got criticized from all directions, including doctors. Depressing to say the least. Now that I'm 6 months pregnant with my second child, I'm experiencing the same exact problem.. and I'm feeling very inadequate as a mother.

I can't even supply my child of nourishment. My husband tries to be supportive, and he really is. But some things he says makes me feel just as inadequate.

Like well what did women back in the day do?? I don't know I just felt alone. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with this problem. A woman can only endure so much.

I had low supply too

Thank you for sharing. Your comments make me feel not so alone too. My son was losing weight when I just breast fed.

I was devastated. I breast fed with an SNS (a tube that was taped to my nipple to top up with formula) and I expressed between feeds to increase my supply but nothing worked. After 12 long weeks I gave up and moved on to bottle feeding.

I have since done much research into what could have gone wrong and have put every thing into a plan that I intend to use when I get pregnant with no. 2 which we are now trying for.

I feel confident that I will make more milk next time. I would love to share my info with you. Please feel free to e-mail me [email protected] if interested. If breast feeding doesn't work second time around, I will at least have peace that I tried my best.
