I know this is a highly personally question, but I just wanted to know if other moms had the same experience as I did.
In a nutshell, I had a breast reduction 6 years ago, and because of the size of my breasts, a lot (and I mean A LOT) of breast tissue was removed, as well as 90% of my milk ducts. I was going through early menopause so there was no hope for me to have any children, so what did I need milk ducts for?
Fast-forward: found out I was pregnant (surprise!!), and I really wanted to breast feed. I wanted to give it my best effort, even though I was told it would probably never happen (due to the surgery). Still, I bought no formula or bottles.
Baby Victoria is born! I immediately breast feed her, but she never seemed to be satisfied. When I took her home from the hospital, she was nursing for 1.5-2 hours at a time. She would nap for an hour or so, then would want to nurse again!
