Why can't some women breastfeed?

If you are wondering why some people cannot breastfeed, we have listed a few reasons below.

  • If you are dealing with a serious illness or infection. HIV, heart disease, and untreated tuberculosis are just a couple of examples of illnesses that would keep you from being able to breastfeed.
  • Breast augmentations or breast reductions can lead to issues with a low breast milk supply.
  • This may be self-explanatory, but if you are struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction, it's best to avoid nursing for the baby’s health.
  • Certain medications may prevent you from being able to breastfeed. An example would be if you are receiving radiation.  Always make sure to check with your doctor when starting a new medication during breastfeeding.
