Hi everyone -
Hopefully someone will be able to give me some thoughts on this. I've been trying to nurse my 1 month old and have still not noticed my milk coming in. There hasn't been any noticeable difference in my breasts since he was born. He lost a lot of weight, so we started supplementing with formula, which I'm currently giving him with a Lact-Aid. I've been doing the whole rigamarole to increase my supply - all the LCs and various LLL leaders I've talked to said I'm doing everything they can think of, that I should just nurse more and drink more.
Anyway, I started reading about insufficient glandular tissue and I'm wondering if that could be the problem. I'm not sure if I have that condition, though, because I'm overweight and my breasts aren't small. I'm 5'2" and about 100 lbs overweight, but my breasts are only a 38C. They've never been full or perky, but then I've always been overweight. So, is it possible that I have insufficent glandular tissue even if my breasts aren't abnormally small? Is there any way my OB can tell this? I go in for my 6 week followup in a week and a half.
Anyway.. any thoughts you can give me would be hugely appreciated. Thanks!
