What do you think? What would your guess be? Am I gonna be a one boobed mama?

Two years ago I had a breast reduction. Now ready to deliver my first baby I worry about if I will be able to breast feed. I am leaking out of one breast only.

What is your take on this? Will I be a one boob mom?

  • You would be better off asking a professional! You never know though, maybe you can massage the other one etc. There maybe some tricks to lactate from the other one too! :) I know that is someone has inverted nipples if you use a breast pump it helps pull the nipple out to breastfeed....Good Luck!

  • All women have one breast that produces more milk than the other. Mine made my breast almost a whole cup size different, solely from the milk.
    Don't worry about problems with milk production in advance. Tell yourself you WILL be able to nurse and you ARE going to do this.

  • No worries about leaking from only one side.
