    Lissyloo - wow...I had never heard about girls with PCOS potentially having trouble with breastfeeding. I had no end of trouble with trying to breastfeed my DD - basically had very poor milk supply......but no one ever mentioned it might be due to me having PCOS?? You have shed some light for me....I just thought I was crap at it...lol. This time I hope to have a better go at it.

    May - hmmm thats interesting, i'm going to ask my OB about it when i have my appointment. I guess there is not point in worrying about it now though as it may not be an issue. My Sister has PCOS and had had 3 kids naturally and breastfed all of them with no problems. My PCOS is alot worse though. I hope you have better luck this time

    Hi Lissy
    I had heard about the PCOS thing and issues with BF. I dont have PCOS but I do have polysistic ovaries and there was no way I could BF billy- we gave us 2 weeks in lol. For starters, he was in the special care nursery and he needed to fatten up and he just wouldn't take to my breast so it was better for him to feed him formula and give him some of my expressed milk. When we got home together a week later I could only express like 30 mls a day max and he was drinking more than that at each feed, 7 times a day lol so it was not going to work.
    May- I find that they never tell u things like that- midwives just tell u that everyone can BF and u will have the correct supply blah blah and I completely disagree!

    It was the middies at the local teaching hospital here (in the ACT) who told a friend of mine that there are issues with PCOS and BFing. I have since done my owb research on the topic and due to the many complicated facets of PCOS it really depends on your own personal hormonal structure whether you will be able to BF or not. About 33% of PCOSers have an over supply of BM, 33% are normal and 33% never really have any real milk come in.

    When I had my dd i didnt have a problem with my milk supply and actually had an over supply. This time around I have had colstrum come out already and am hoping that's a sign i will be able to BF.

    Hi....hope you dont mind if i join in....

    Can i please just say....HOLY MOLY LISSY!!! Natural BFP!!! well done!! you had so many troubles over the last year (i think) and now look at you!! well done!! best wishes to you!

    Shy..... I never had fully sore tender boobies! my nipples were sometimes a bit tender but i never had the whole rack totally sore. I think also i felt minor pain the most in the morning when waking up but that's about it. I think i'm nearly needing to get new bigger size bras now.....i'm only down to 2 normal ones and i think....well....it's time to start accommodating bigger boulders!

    Hi to the rest of you! Hope you're all keeping well!
