    DS strongly prefers the right - I always wonder if it's because that was the very first side he fed from at an hour old, my supply has always been slightly higher on that side.

    I breast-fed Lucy until 18 months, at which stage she reduced to a morning and night feed, and I was diagnosed with breast cancer (so abruptly stopped all feeds).
    But as many have said, Lucy also preferred the left side, and my ductal carcinoma was of the left breast!!

    Woah. Sorry about the cancer. Are you all clear now?

    Hopefully
    6 months of chemotherapy, mastectomy and axillary dissection, 2 months of daily radiotherapy. Still recovering from the radiotherapy.
    When I felt the initial lump in my breast in January, I assumed it was a blocked duct from breastfeeding. I breast-fed both my children for quite a while, which is supposed to be a protective factor against breast cancer. But, as my Breast Surgeon said...the biggest risk factor for breast cancer is being a woman!
    Feel your boobs regularly, girls...even if you are feeding.

    That's good advice @J37, I was an extended breastfeeder with 3 out of 4 of my kids, and because I was either pregnant or breastfeeding for the past 10 years, I didn't really check my breasts as I did pre-kids, it was sort of low on my register compared with other things us poor women have to be mindful of and I only really worried about blocked ducts, so never really felt/checked them.

    However, it is always timely advice to check your breasts even when you're nursing, better to be safe than sorry.

    And sadly, the age of diagnosis of breast cancer seems to be getting younger, with more and more women in their late 30s.

    Day 8 of your menstrual cycle is generally the best day to feel your boobs...this is when lumpiness is least likely to be due to hormonal factors.

    Day 8, thank you! That's good to know as I know when I was younger I would get lumps and freak, only to be told it was fatty tissue and cyclic.
    So sad women are being diagnosed younger and younger. Us women have so much to worry about, just for the fact we're women. 😔

    I had a problem with my son , and he refused to stop breastfeeding until 2 years old. He is 5 now, and when his sister was born he still wanted to get in on it! Its really difficult, but try to express and feed through a bottle? this is what worked for me!
