This is a critical issue which is a cause of distress for many women. Is breastfeeding after breast reduction okay? Well, to tell you the truth, we are not sure about it. There are various things which can affect the ability breastfeed but here we will be discussing how mothers can maximize the supply of milk and how breast reduction procedure relates to this.
We need to re-define the success which means we need to provide ways in which women can produce milk even after breast reduction. Mostly, the common factor of reduced production is psychological. Whether the women can provide 10%, 20% or even 100% of milk it mostly depends upon the thought process of each woman.
To get the maximum advantage women can take the training class on breastfeeding before the baby. She can do it by taking International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Find someone who is well-trained and can offer the right guidance to you.
Once the baby is out what you can do is breastfeed them regularly. If you do that there will be no such problem with breastfeeding. Because breastfeeding is a natural phenomenon and when you follow the basic requirements of nature, things usually go right.
A word of caution is that if the baby is not gaining weight, or not giving the recommended number of pee or poop, it is a sign that your baby is not getting enough milk.
Although there are additional supplements which you can use to overcome the need of the baby, it is not a preferred practice. It is always a good option to go for surgery when the required results are not generating. You can try going for a support system. Find moms who are in a similar state and create a group which can help each other.
