This is my first and I really want to breastfeed my baby. I have under the muscle implants and I haven't had the sore painful breasts like most have during their pregnancy and they havent really gone up in size yet either (I'm 15 weeks). What can I start doing now or closer to my due date to ensure that I'm producing milk for baby?

There is nothing that you can do right now. Its all up to your body whether you produce milk or not. You're only 15 weeks, not everyone's b**bs grow when they are pregnant. Your body doesn't start to produce milk until after the placenta is detached and that won't happen until after birth.

I figured it was too early to do anything :( I'm just really hoping that everything works out and that I can produce enough.

Your body is designed by nature to produce milk and will do so without your help.



My b**bs didn't get big and sore with my second but i've had an easier, more successful time breastfeeding her.

Think positive. My b**bs didn't grow at all while I was pregnant and I never leaked like some women do. However, I had what was called an "over production" of milk. I made enough to feed two babies. Even when my supply evened out I was still making "too much".



If you want, you can go to kellymom.com to start reading up on breastfeeding. I believe that education and persistence are key to breastfeeding.

:!: to that last sentence. Education, persistence, and confidence. Read up on what is normal behavior for a breastfed infant so you don't worry you're not producing enough just because she fusses or cluster feeds. Keep in mind that the rough patches don't last forever and you can get through it. And above everything, believe in your body. It's made to do this.

i speak from experience. I have breastfeed babies both with implants & without. there is no real difference, only that my b**bs were bigger when full. best thing to do is not to stress on it. stress can be felt by the baby when trying to breast feed in the beginning & it can get frustrating. just relax & know that u can do it. good luck.
