Hi

I was wondering if anyone has experience breast feeding after a breast reduction or knows anyone with experience? I had a breast reduction last year as the pain just got to be too much and I wasnt *planning* on having kids for about 4 years. The Dr. knowing I did eventually want kids one day tried to leave as many milk ducts intact. I still have full feeling of my nipples and breasts so I dont think there was too much damage.

Fast forward to 11 months later and one happy surprise I'm wondering how successful I can be at breastfeeding. The Dr. said they probably wont be able to tell till after I give birth and then they will see whether the baby can get enough or whether I will need to supplement.

Does anyone have any personal experience?

I don't have any personal experience but I found this website for you:

It's specifically about breastfeeding after breast and nipple surgeries and it looks like it has a lot of information and also forums as well that might be helpful.
