Re: Trouble with BF with previous kids

I have had some supply issues in the past, but what I will tell you is soo important. AVOID bottles like the plague! If there is a real need for any amount of supplimentation, I would advise using a sns system. I found out the hard way with my first that bottles can seriously sabatoge breastfeeding efforts even in the most dedicated of women. Be encouraged and trust your body. And remember that even a baby who has taken enough at the breast will often still take a full bottle and it is not a good measure of what you have. Good luck, you can do it! Anyone who can successsfully relactate should be able to breastfeed from the beginning.
