I am days to weeks away from.having my baby. I was wondering in there anything I can do to make sure I can BF my baby. I am about 10 years post reduction, doctor left my nipples attached and worked around them. I had colostum(sp) once and it was just a little dot and nothing since then. Any suggestions?

Check out kellymom.com search breast reduction. It is possible, you may face some extra challenges though. It will be good to get as much info as you can and find some good support :) congrats on baby!

This. I was going to suggest bfar too. I know that we have had at least one mom in the group successfully nurse after a reduction and at least one after an enhancement.

Tabi, didn't Christina have a reduction on one side? I haven't seen her in the group in a long time.
