This woman that I know (who thinks she knows everything), made a comment to me about breastfeeding. She decided to inform me that I probably won't have much luck bf this baby (I only fed DD about 9-10 weeks because my supply just wasn't there and she was drinking more formula to top her up than breast milk), because 'apparently' my breasts have not increased enough...what the?
The thing is, I'm not small breasted at all, infact I am a D cup. Her basis for this comment was that I have filled out everywhere except my breasts (and yeah, I can still wear my pre-pregnancy bra, so they have not increased in size with this pregnancy), so therefore she believes that I will not make enough milk. She ranted something about milk ducts increasing size and making way for milk production for a few minutes.
Anyway, please tell me that she is full of s**t!!!
I really want to have a better experience with bf this time, but her stupid comments have started to worry me. I really can't see how the size of someones breasts can impact on ability to make a supply of milk. Also, wouldn't the change be more likely to happen after birth, when milk production actually begins?
Oh and also she went on about leaking colostrum (which hasn't happened yet), and she believes that I should have done so by now.
