I love this post. With my first I had a really hard time breastfeeding, I was extremely overweight, out of shape, and my 'girls' were very, very unweildy. As in the specialty bra store did not sell my size. It was impossible to get in a good position to feed my daughter. Then, despite pumping every two hours in addtion to feeding on demand, I never would get any more than an ounce at a session. I finally quit, and never got engorged or anything. I was miserable and felt like a failure. Now pregnant with my second I have been reading up on the condition I have, PCOS, and milk undersupply is a well known problem with women who have this condition. It is really upsetting because I told everyone that I had PCOS with my first, the nurses, lactation consultants, and everything, and no one ever told me. I was set up for failure and to feel like one. My OB thinks it may be possible with medicine to get my milk suppy going with this one, but I am really just thinking about not even trying, because I don't know if I want to deal with the stress of it, in addition to having a newborn and another young child in the house.
