  1. So excited for your one year of breastfeeding:)

  2. I learned about IGT through Emma Kwasnica, and doing more research online about it.

    I felt like a huge failure when I was unable to provide enough milk for my son, but donor milk helped heal that hurt and we have been so blessed by donors!

    If I win, I will use this for my next pregnancy :)


  3. I learned about IGT from my lactation councilor and OB/GYN. Right now I'm taking donperidone, More milk plus and goats rue (separately). I really wish La Leche League (at least in my area) was more informed about IGT. When I went to one of their meetings looking for help I was treated like a fool who didn't know what she was doing. It devastated me and I ended up giving up on breastfeeding with my first born at 3 months. Now that I've taken more time and researched my condition more I feel that I have a better grasp on what I'm dealing with and consider myself very successful for still breastfeeding (as much as possible) my daughter who is now 3 months old! (And I don't plan on stopping any time soon :)
    Now, my definition of success is not how much I make, but how much quality bonding time I have with my daughter (either with a bottle or my Lact-aid which were working on her not rejecting).

  4. I learned about IGT from my midwife at the hospital though she didn't call it that, but instead said I lacked breast tissue. I then learned what it was called from the book making more milk.

    I was so blessed to learn about my condition at the hospital when I gave birth to my first son (2 months ago). I know that there was nothing I was doing wrong, in fact I was doing great. I only wish I had learned about it before, knowing that not making enough milk was a possibility, instead I thought that everyone can nurse, it was hard but everyone could do it. In fact, in general I wish there was more information, more research.

  5. I learned about IGT first hand after having my daughter. I wish I had know about the possibility of it and not had so many expectations about bf. I define my success by knowing I continue to work to provide her with as much bm as possible while maintaining our bf bond. Also not allowing it to overtake our lives as it so easily does. I would like to see more ob professionals learning about bf so those with IGT don't feel like freaks when they think its a made up condition. Anyway, thanks for sharing your story and for this giveaway :)

  6. I first learned about IGT from here!! I struggled to breastfeed my first child and even with pumping and LC support I gave up after a month, never knowing why I could not produce anything.
    With my second child, the LC told me she thought I might have insufficient tissue but she never explained to me what that meant or the formal term. She basically said I just needed to give up. So I did, sadly. Now pregnant with my third and due in 6 weeks I am determined to give breastfeeding another try. I only wish I had known about IGT sooner since I feel like I failed my other two children.
    With this baby and armed with the info I have learned, I will define success as trying everything I can to successfully breastfeed, even if that means supplementing.
