We made it 1 year!

I have PCOS and low supply as a result. I only nursed my DD for 4 months before giving it up when I barely produced 2 ounces in a 24 hour period. I was heartbroken and felt like a failure. Fast forward to my DS and while I've had to supplement since he was 2 weeks old we continued to breastfeed as well. I've been able to pump 4 ounces a day at work and nurse him on demand when with him. He turned one on the 18th of this month and I am just over the moon that we made it this long! He is down to nursing only in the morning and occasionally before bed, but we made it. My goal was one year and here we are!

Re: We made it 1 year!

This gives me some hope that I can do that too. I had to start supplementing around 2 months and we still are. I pump at work but my supply gradually tapers through the day with each pump so I hope I can go for a while with some breastmilk.

Re: We made it 1 year!

Congratulations! I have PCOS too and had a low supply - DS and I only made it 7 months. This gives me hope that I can do better next time.
