nak My best friend has tubular breasts. Her mother has them also and had no milk supply. She just assumed her mother hadn't really tried to breastfeed. My friend tried everything... drinking tons of water, medications, pumping, etc. I helped her with latching correctly, positioning, etc.. Babies gained no weight, started spitting up blood... realized they were getting blood from her and that's it. She felt she "failed" with her first. Determined to do it again with second, and same thing happened. I realize that is all an extreme case, but it was the breast shape and reduced tissue. When her 3rd was born, she nursed him for the first few days in case there was any colostrum but no signs of any milk. She had no signs of engorgement after stopping breastfeeding either.
