    Thank you for this post! It is important for all of us to know that people do or do not breastfeed for different reasons, even if they want to be breast feeding.

    I had a breast reduction 8 years ago, when I was 22 and not thinking about breast feeding. I EBF my son for 2 months, but he fell off the weight chart so our breast-feeding-loving pediatrician said we should supplement. I feel so guilty every time I give him a bottle of formula, even though I rationally know it is what is best for him.
    I love nursing him, and it is the only way he will fall asleep, so I know he loves it too. I have never felt confident in my supply for him though. I want our nursing relationship to go on for a long time, so I hope we both have the patience for it.

    Thank you for posting this. I’m a CLC and I always find it difficult when mothers have trouble nursing from the breast because they only feel that there is one method of supplementation. Thank you for being so thorough!
