I'm 38 weeks pregnant and have done all my parenting classes etc with the associated emphasis on breastfeeding. I also had a very extensive breast reduction about 8 years ago. After talking to a lactation consultant today I was informed that 99% of women who have had a reduction have to at least supplement with formula if not feed exclusively with it.
Considering the classes were aimed at telling us breast is best and formula is a SIDS risk, this is concerning to me.
Has anyone had a breast reduction and managed to breast feed? What were your experiences with this?
I'm better when I know what to expect and to be honest I don't trust all midwives to be honest when it comes to breastfeeding.
