    Default Breast Reduction & BFing After

    I wasnt sure where to post this, I might post it in the parenting one as well?

    I have heard stories of people getting breast reductions and later on having more children and having issues with bresatfeeding. Does anyone know anything about it, anyone had a reduction and had problems or was it fine!?

    I have serious back problems and had had BIG breasts all my life. I am really looking into gettting a reduction after DD1 is done breastfeeding *hopefully wont be for like another 1 1/2 years =)* and i dont plan on having another child within the next 4 years IF ever again. Soo jsut wondering if I DID have another how a reduction would affect breastfeeding.

    Hope to hear from you all soon. thank you

    It is common for women with breast reductions to have trouble breastfeeding. Often scar tissue will restrict the growth of mammary tissue during your pregnancy. Try taking a supplement called goats rue because this actually helps grow mammary tissue. Motherlove.com has a liquid and a capsule. Good luck mama.
