    Sebastian was born on 3 August, but there is no sign of my period yet! I tried to breastfeed for 3 weeks, but never produced enough milk and had to bottle feed. A few weeks ago I had a slight smear of blood, but nothing more. So, when does the period return?

    Also, my breasts have gone down a bit, but I have not breast fed for over a month. They went down one size, but nothing more. I went from a G cup to an L and now I am down to a K. How long does it take for them to go back down?

    i guess ur prolactin level is low which play a main role to produce milk in woman body just go for a prolactin blood test.I hope it will help u .DR will prescribe u some prolactin tablet which will be helpfull for milk produce in ur body.

    I wish I knew about this before! From my great-grandmother to me, no one has been able to breastfeed. I had a breastfeeding counsellor here who saw he was latched. But, he was not satisfied. I stopped breastfeeding one day and that was it. They did not engorge or hurt and there was no milk. Not even a leak.

    If we do decide to have another child I will definitely look into this as I was gutted to not be able to breastfeed.

    Maybe this is normal? My GP had me take a pregnancy test, but it was negative. I guess it is just a wait and see, but I do not mind all that much if it takes it's time to show up! :D

    We have been on a bit of a rollercoaster with Sebastian, but we are slowly getting there. I hope you've had an easier ride!

    I do not know about you, but do you feel you are more used to not getting enough sleep or do you feel you get more sleep? :D

    I tried to call you, but figured you were busy. You had been on my mind and I was wondering how things were going.

    I can always lend you some of my breasts...there is enough to go around to help out anyone on this message board who wants more cleavage!
