One of our biggest frustrations in the lactation/breastfeeding support arena is that we have so little information to offer mothers who have a physiological barrier to breastfeeding — their bodies just don’t produce milk, even after other problems have been solved. I described this condition in this post at KellyMom.com.
Penny Liberatos, PhD (New York Medical College) and I have finished collecting responses for this study, which sought to understand the relationship between various factors and breastfeeding/lactation outcomes for mothers with insufficient glandular tissue.
Thank you to everyone who participated in this study — data analysis and manuscript preparation are underway. The time and care that went into each response is evident and is immensely appreciated. We will be sure to share where and when our findings may be published.
