|Widely spaced breasts that are more narrow than round and that do not grow in pregnancy are considered hypoplastic. With this, the milk onset is late! Up to one month for full production. But 40 percent of mothers with hypoplastic breasts do get full milk, while 60 percent make less than full production. So, Otto, you might want to pump after nursings with a fully automatic pump and take fenugreek and hang in there for at least one month.|

I would recommend the above links, a Yahoo group called MOBI (mothers overcoming breastfeeding obstacles), a book called something like Breastfeeding After Reduction (people who have insufficient glandular tissue have similar problems to those who have had reduction surgery), and a book called Mother Food. Also, if you go to BabyCenter's (very mainstream) breastfeeding problems board, they will try to diagnose whether you actually do have breast hypoplasia.
ETA: Kathleen Huggins is their consultant on the BabyCenter board.
I'm breastfeeding and supplementing and hoping I'll have more glandular tissue for #2.
