Re: success story: overcoming insufficient glandular tissue
That's what stopping me from throwing in the towel - I know that I would never forgive myself if I were to quit. it's REALLY hard to do this with a toddler to care for, but it's so worth it.

We could have made it longer than 8 months, but DD had an undiagnosed upper lip tie, and we were using a nipple shield (bad advice from an evil pediatrician who tried to intentionally sabotage BFing for us). Lots of IGT moms I know who make it past the first couple of months go for 1 year +!
