I'm leaking.

TOTALLY was not expecting this. My boobs have been sore for a couple of days but I figured it was just normal pregnancy business. I didn't leak last time and was definitely not expecting to leak after a breast reduction - and when I've still got, like, 12 weeks to go.

Did either of you leak? I do not intend to BF this babe (it was an awful experience for me) and I'm all set to bind and wear cabbage leaves, but I am just... whoa.

BTDT, hopefully?

Yes I did leak - still do a little bit! I was surprised too since I didn't at all with Keller. I thought maybe I would have a better supply this time, but after these few weeks of trying to nurse before each feeding, it's pretty clear that my overall production is still minimal. And I never leaked more than a little bit. I finally have stopped trying to nurse b/c I felt some areas of my breasts that weren't draining (scar tissue or severed nerves maybe?) and got a little nervous about an infection if I keep trying.

Yes, I leaked too, with both pregnancies- and I got preggo with Hunter 2 weeks after the procedure ( alittle over 8 years ago).

I actually nursed and supplemented with Elijah for 2 months. I only produced around a half an ounce or two at the most though, which obviously was not enough. It came to the point where I had to decide if that ounce was worth the extra hour of lost sleep each feeding or not and for me it was not. I did the same with Hunter for about 2 weeks. I pumped for a little while after the 2 months with Elijah and put back a little to mix with his bottles, but it sort of felt like fighting a losing battle. I was thrilled I was able to provide a little for both of them though, and would do it again if I had another baby (ha!).

I would expect you would produce a little bit if you decided you wanted to do it for a little while. It was important to me to provide at least the colostrum, but once I got past the first few weeks I didn't care either way it went!
