Hi Sugarplum, I am also a small breasted woman but I got to breastfeed my DD for 7 months. I had to nurse her every 2 hours which did get exhausting at times but it also meant I could sit down a lot lol. I found drinking anything with malt in it boosted my supply such as sustagen or milo. Plus it's a much yummier alternative.

You are a super Mum! 7 months feeding 2 hourly!
If i can get myself more organised with my business and playing with my toddler I won't mind 2 hourly feeds - bub is now going 3 hourly which is working well

Oh do you believe that you "need" to feed 2 hourly because you are small breasted?
05-06-2012 09:41 #74
Yes absolutely. I was lucky if I got to 3 hourly but I was also lucky that she slept through the night from 7 weeks old. I thought it was normal feeding so frequently coz breastmilk was digested easier, although on the occasions she did have formula she would only go 3 hours between feeds anyway. Like you were told by a LC I was also told that because of my small boobs my storage capacity was less requiring more frequent feeding.

I'm Indian and cooking with it is normal. When bfing full time I added it to almost everything.
DH took a bit to get used to the effects but after a week or so was fine.

Small breasted doesn't mean small supply though! I am an A cup and am still feeding my 2 year old. I had to manage oversupply issues until she was 18 months old. I fed frequently for my own needs ie my breasts would get uncomfortably full quicker as they were small storage tanks :
I also had to very gradually stretch out time between feeds overnight with both bubs or I would get mastitis
