Re: success story: overcoming insufficient glandular tissue
I am encouraged to see this thread! I have IGT/hypoplasia and couldn't produce more than about 6oz a day. We had to give DD formula by day three because she had lost nearly a pound by then. After four months she got to where she wouldn't stay latched for more than ten seconds and would just scream at me for trying. The LC we saw said her latch was perfect, and I had no other physical issues impacting my ability to breastfeed other than just not having enough mammary tissue. DD gradually lost interest in nursing because there just wan't much there.
We're considering trying for another about a year from now. I still want to give BFing a shot when the time comes. This may sound like a silly question, but would some of these herbs still have an effect on mammary tissue if you're not lactating anymore?
