I'm 21 weeks pregnant, and I'm looking for some advice and/or personal experience from those of you who have successfully breastfed with implants. Here is a brief background on me-
This will be my third baby. I exclusively breastfed my first without any major problems for 14 months (I would have gone longer if I had known then that I should!). The only real issue I had with her was that after a few months, she decided to nurse exclusively from only one side. Again, this really wasn't an issue for my DD, just for me, as it made me super lopsided for the rest of our time nursing. My supply seemed to be ample from just the one side though, so it wasn't that big of a deal.
I planned to breastfeeding my second child, thinking I wouldn't have any real issues again. However, I had a ton of problems- we got thrush, I was forced to go back to work early, he was tounge tied, and I had PPD. I managed to nurse him for about two months, supplementing with what I was able to pump at work, but my supply dried up pretty quickly.
This time around, I am absolutely hell bent on exclusively breastfeeding. I'm not working anymore, and I will be staying at home for at least the next two years. My main concern is that in the spring of 2010, I got breast implants to deal with the unevenness caused by nursing my first child only on one side. They were placed under the muscle and the incision is underneath my breast- from what I understand, the ideal way to go to have little to no impact on milk ducts.
I'm looking for some personal stories from other mamas who have successfully breastfed after implants. Did you have a low supply? If so, what did you do to boost it? I would really like to try to nip any issues in the bud before they become big issues. I know how important nursing on demand is, especially in the first few weeks- is there anything else that I should do to make sure this is going to work?
