    anonee008 :  i had a reduction in 2008. i thought milk would be all or nothing so i was thrilled when something came out.  i didn’t know the struggles we would have.  and trust me, we struggled, i cried every day for the 1st 112 weeks. so 1st kid in 2016, supplied 50% for him. 2nd kid in 2017, we are ebf, she will be 1yo tomorow. it took a lot of hard work in the beginning but it was worth it.

    i highly suggest you join the bfar fb support group, read “defining your own success” by diana west and meeting with an ibclc as soon as baby is born and once your milk comes in.
