A sensitive subject as I have to find out.
Breastfeeding is still a topic where opinions differ. The question of whether a mother is breastfeeding or giving the bottle can only be answered incorrectly. Breastfeeding you, has definitely been breastfeeding for too long and the child won't be satisfied anyway. Giving you the bottle, breastfeeding is the holy grail.

Dear mothers, do what with her feel good and just let the others talk.
But I think this is a principle that you learn very quickly as a mother.
After the birth of my daughter, I started breastfeeding her. We didn't have any problems with that. Now she is already a toddler and we are not quite finished with breastfeeding. Which I also think is good and not bad at all. Incidentally, the natural weaning age can be up to 7 years. The whole thing is so individual. Every child has their time. Every child has their own pace.
Breastfeeding with Lipedema - Is There a Problem?
But what about breastfeeding with lipedema? I scoured the Internet, but I didn't find anything. I received an email from a lipedema nurse. She told me that her doctor advised her to stop breastfeeding right away. Because if you were to breastfeed, you would get massive pain. She sounded a bit desperate because she just didn't know what to do.
At this point I would just like to give one thing to consider. Those doctors who advise us to stop breastfeeding, keep our calories to a minimum, or exercise more than a competitive athlete are the same doctors who say they don't know where lipedema comes from and there are no studies on it. So where do you get the knowledge to give us such tips? When it comes to breastfeeding, I think it's a serious intervention.
Dear expectant mothers, please try to let it come to you. Take your little baby in your arms. It will need you and will look for you. Give it what it wants. Just let nature run free. Breastfeeding doesn't hurt, doesn't make sagging breasts, doesn't make lipedema worse, and doesn't make you ecotrophs. To be honest, I find all these prejudices really wrong.
You are asked!
It makes me wonder that breastfeeding is advised against. The Hormone still flood through the body after the birth and I don't know what disadvantages should arise. But at this point you are asked!
We have to talk and inform about it openly!
My review of my breastfeeding time
Of course, it's a very individual review. Just like everything is a little bit individual. I started breastfeeding my daughter after she was born. She did her job more than well and we had no problems mooring. It hurt a bit at the beginning. The breast has to get used to sucking. For me it was time to close my eyes for a moment. After 3–4 days, we were able to breastfeed. Without pain, just smacking my little ones with pleasure Hanna connected. In retrospect, I now like to think back to those moments. In fact, I almost cry when I think about how I listened to a doctor and let these beautiful moments be stolen from me.
