You're 1000% right. But no harm in protecting ourselves by being (or feigning if you have to) confidence in what we're doing.

But even if you’re NOT sure, you should still get nothing other than support. We shouldn’t have to show or feign confidence in order to not be made to feel guilty.

What business is it of yours if, for whatever reason, someone doesn’t want to nurse? Why should she be made to feel guilty because YOU don’t like her choice?

I'm not making anyone feel guilty. I'm just pointing out that a study saying x amount of women don't produce enough milk doesn't really mean much.

How much torture and mental breakdowns does it take until somebody is allowed to say that they CANT produce enough milk?

Please open your own thread instead of ruining any benefit anyone may have from this one.

Well then you must know everything then. You read the title of an article and you have family members with IGT.

Banging head Banging head Banging head That's all I can say to your comment.

ETA: I can also quote statistics. But statistics DO NOT PRODUCE MILK!

Was that loud enough for those in the back?

It does, it just doesn’t apply to all women who don’t nurse. From the outside, it makes no difference if a woman can’t or chooses not to. All women who are bottle feeding should be looked at as women who are doing what works best to get their babies fed.

The post from a mom asking what to do about her milk coming in after a misscarriage at 19 weeks got me thinking. She's in pain, phyically from the milk and emotionally thinking what could've been.

I don't want to post this there as it will derail, and it would be insensitive.

I'm not good at nursing. I don't have a good supply, my babies are misreable, they don't gain weight and don't settle. BH I don't find it a problem, I give formula and all is good. I'm aware that not everyone can feed and am happy there are good formulas and am confident in my decision.

But I do see that some people would be devastated and keep trying, even when they are misreable and so are their babies.

I remember a friend had a stillborn at full term. Knowing I don't nurse she asked me what I do to stop my milk coming in as she was in tremendous pain. Only, I never had that 'problem', my milk simply never came in.

I realised then that I was actually very fortunate. I had a healthy baby but no milk, a 'problem' that was easily sorted with formula. My friend had milk...but no baby. A much much harder situ.

Ladies can we put things in perspective and not make a difficulty into a huge problem?

Thoughts anyone?


This makes me question why I didn’t notice I had milk until I gave birth. Do first time mom milk only come in once they gave birth? It seems according to this post it comes in while pregnant.

No it does not. It comes in a few days after birth.

Milk only comes in after birth, first time mom or otherwise.

Although in my case it didn't even come in after birth Sad

10,000 times
Or it takes 2 weeks (yes, 2 weeks, for a halfway decent amount to come in).
